ccbKingman City attorney Carl Cooper said he is confident that a compromise can be reached regarding intended church use of a downtown property. The City Council previously voted to reject the conditional use permit (CUP) required for the Central Christian Church to use the Central Commercial Building.
An attorney for the Church, Matt Lockin, submitted a litigation threatening claim that alleged city denial trampled upon various religious and constitutional rights.
After meeting in executive session during it’s January 19 meeting, the Kingman Council directed Cooper and staff to attempt to resolve the conflict. Cooper said the approach is to tweak conditions attached to the permit that the Council will reconsider during its February 2nd meeting.
