Some municipalities unfairly impose unreasonable zoning and permitting rules on public charter schools. These extra fees, punitive delays, and arbitrary measures take precious resources away from the students in public charter school classrooms.
In recent years, public charter schools have been required to over-purchase land and to fund expensive city infrastructure improvements unrelated to the school. Rezoning has been delayed and denied on arbitrary grounds as well.
Municipalities should not be allowed to use unfair and unreasonable permitting and zoning rules to divert precious taxpayer dollars away from school children and their classrooms.
