On July 7, 2001, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Pastor Mark Hoffman's "Foothills Christian Fellowship church filed suit...the City Council, saying it violated the church's civil and constitutional rights in May by voting against its proposal to move to El Cajon Towne Center. The City Council and the Planning Commission...said the downtown's largest commercial property was best suited for retail, restaurants and homes."
