Aren't these just a small room in some 1980's strip mall, honestly who cares..... they are paying into the economy by renting office space

Actually the building is quite large. Back in the mid 80's Allina rented two of the three floors for their clearing center. The building has been vacant for a lot of years, but I beieve there are 3 floors approx 22 -24,000 sq ft, per floor and there is an annex with a full basement as well, just to the south that has about 20,000 square ft.

The problem is, the city council vote 4-1 not to rezone the building and therefore the basement, where the mosque is to be, would not qualify for tax exemption as a religious site. I think they were trying to get the entire building under the an excemption, but I could be wrong there. Of course the lawyers are screaming the "d" word and with the feds, that means action!!
