Please keep in mind that I know this falls under the RLUIPA, but I am unclear about the procedure that would need to be followed.
We have a mosque in one of our residential neighhorhoods. Religious facilities would be allowed as a special use, however this one preexists the current zoning and so in the beginning they did not have to get a special use permit. So, its not considered nonconforming since it is allowed by zoning.
They want to build a new mosque at the rear of the property. Do they need to get a special use permit?
