The DuPage County Board has rejected plans to operate an Islamic education facility near Naperville after nearly two years worth of debate.

Board members voted 10-7 Tuesday to deny a conditional-use permit for the Irshad Learning Center. The majority of board members said they were concerned about the operation of the facility in a residential neighborhood. They suggested it was time the board re-examine a special zoning proposal for religious institutions.
