K1VR:  A fit matter for negotiation.  Get a lawyer and tell zoning board
that if the bylaw says what they think it says, it fails to meet the
requirements of Federal law. And if it doesn't apply as written (which,
if applied as written, would be an illegal bylaw) the exemption above
does apply.  So one way or another, why don't we stay out of court and
agree on something?
