Commission Rejects Lilburn Mosque Rezoning

LILBURN, GA -- A Muslim congregation has come up against another obstacle in its yearlong quest to build a large mosque in a Lilburn neighborhood. 

The Lilburn planning commission Monday unanimously rejected a rezoning request. The commission's decision is a recommendation. The Lilburn City Council is expected to make the final decision.

The Dar-E-Abbas congregation wants to build a 20,000-square-foot mosque on a four-acre plot.

The planning commission cited problems with buffers and parking, as well as the potential for noise and water runoff.

The congregation filed a discrimination lawsuit a year ago. Lawyer Doug Dillard says the legal wrangling will continue as long as the city denies the congregation's application.

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Gwinnett County authorities say two people have died in an early-morning car crash.

Police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter says the accident happened around 5 a.m. Monday.

Fire department spokesman Lt. Eric Eberly says emergency personnel responding to the accident quickly determined that the drivers of both cars in the head-on crash were dead at the scene.

Eberly says it appears an eastbound vehicle crossed the center line and hit the other vehicle, which was traveling west.

The accident completely shut down Patterson Road in Lawrenceville.
