The DuPage County Board voted against allowing a Muslim worship center to open in the western suburbs.The Irshad Learning Center was to be built on 75th Street in Naperville.

Tuesday morning's 10 to 7 vote by the board came after long fight from nearby residents. Some were against the center because of concerns about potential noise and safety issues.

Those supporting the center say they'll take their request to the appellate court system saying the county board's decision was not legal.
