Local dictators: "Churches looking to grow might find themselves at odds with [Boynton, FL] city planners. That's an issue the Rev. Glenn Lyons stumbled over Tuesday night, when members of his congregation asked the city commission to approve plans for a new church. Currently, members of Deliverance by Faith Church meet in what used to be a laundromat on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, just east of Seacrest Boulevard. Four years ago, the church bought a small property 300 hundred feet down the road, hoping to put a new meeting place there. City planners, though, say a new church doesn't fit the commission-approved vision for the area. The proposed church lot and several others in the immediate area should be reserved for a commercial building that mixes stores and offices, said the city's development director, Quintus Greene."
