The Islamic Center of Richmond seeks and receives permission from Henrico County to expand its current facility into a two-story, roughly 30,000-square-foot structure to house a mosque, a daycare center and a school. Shortly after construction begins in May 2012, a resident who lives near the center filed an appeal of the county’s decision to approve the expansion, citing traffic and parking concerns. At a public hearing in June 2012, residents voice concerns about traffic, safety and lighting. County officials state that the plans met all county requirements and that they will continue to monitor the project’s compliance with county regulations.
