REDMOND, Wash. - Neighbors of a proposed mosque in Redmond are trying to block construction because they say traffic is already too heavy in the area near Microsoft and Nintendo offices.
Planners of the mosque bought the property in 2010 and have already spent two years in design review with the city. They say many of the 150 members of the Anjuman-e-Burhani mosque are information technology professionals.
More than 300 people packed a meeting last week about the project.
The Seattle Times reports a community meeting on the mosque is scheduled at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Redmond City Hall.
