The Maine Supreme Court issued a decision last week that upheld the conditional rezoning of Williston-West Church in Portland. In Charles Remmel, et al. v. City of Portland, et al., the Court upheld the conditional rezoning of the large, historically significant church located in a residential zone. The church was purchased by a business owner, represented by Bernstein Shur, who intended to use the property as a residence for his family and office space for his business.
