Organization Challenges Waynesboro Zoning’s Shutdown of a Charity

Posted: Updated:

The Rutherford Institute has come to the defense of a Waynesboro man who was shut down by the city for selling Christmas trees for charity.

Christian Critzer began selling fresh-cut evergreens in his front yard on Rosser Avenue after thanksgiving.

All the proceeds were for the cancer center at Martha Jefferson Hospital. But because his home is in a residential area, the city issued warnings and a threat of possible fines.

Critzer tried to give the trees away and accept donations, but he was still in violation and shut down last week.

Now, Rutherford Institute attorneys are challenging the city's interpretation of zoning ordinances in an attempt to allow Critzer to continue his charitable act.
