On November 12, 2004 The Fayette County Review reported, "the Fayette County Development Committee has recommended the County Commission not approve a re-zoning request by the North American Islamic Trust to allow a cemetery to be established in a residential district on Orr Road. The vote was held Monday night in front of a packed courtroom consisting mostly of Hickory Withe area residents against the re-zoning... The application for the re-zoning was submitted by L & S Partnership who reported they were in negotiations to sell the property to the North Islamic Trust."
