On November 10, 2004 North Carolina Times reported, "the City Council reversed itself and voted Wednesday to allow a Tibetan Buddhist center on a cul-de-sac, after praising both neighbors and the developer for stopping a months-long fight and finding a compromise. The council voted 3-2, with council members Ed Gallo and Marie Waldron dissenting, to approve tougher guidelines for a 4,130-square-foot temple and a 1,100-square-foot guest house that will be built on a three-quarter-acre section of a 2 1/2-acre property at 1768 Sheridan Place. A house already stands on the property, which is at the end of the cul-de-sac."
