A church owned land in rurual area that was used for a recreation area for disabled children.
Fire destroyed vegetation in the area, allowing flooding to occur.
To protect public safety, the county adopted an ordinance prohibiting any new building in the area until it determined what to do.
The church requested to build facilities was denied for 6 yrs while the county pondered what the bldg code should be for the area.
The church sued for loss of use of the land.
Can the church recover under the just compensation clause of the 5th Amendment?
