On April 6, 2002, The Appeal-Democrat featured the article "Planning commission's approval of Sikh temple challenged" which documents that "appeals were filed... challenging the Sutter County [CA] Planning Commission's approval of a Sikh temple... The commission... voted 4-3 to allow the conversion of a home... into a temple." A few residents launched the appeal saying "the temple 'belongs in an area that can absorb the impact of this project.'"
