On Tuesday, the DuPage County Board declined to grant a conditional use permit to allow a Muslim worship facility and school to operate on 75th Street east of Naper Boulevard, between Naperville and Lisle.
Opponents have raised objections ranging from worries about the amount of parking and noise to concerns about the group's links to terrorism.
While the board voted 10-7 against it, all three of the board members representing Naperville supported it, and board member James Healy said he believed the board was legally required to approve it.
The group behind the measure will likely appeal.
What do you think? Is this a case of racism or anti-Muslim feeling, or were the objections legitimate and enough to deny the plans? Do you think this reflects poorly on Naperville and DuPage County?
