On April 29, 2003 the Chicago Tribune reported that "the Morton Grove Village Board [IL]unanimously rejected a proposal Monday night for a mosque that drew heavy opposition from residents who said it would create traffic and parking problems... But trustees made it clear that the Muslim Education Center, a school at 8601 Menard Ave., could submit a new plan and repeat the process before the Plan Commission and Village Board... Gary Tucker, an attorney representing the Muslim center, said mosque officials plan to do just that. They will reduce the size proposed for the mosque and increase the number of parking spaces."
