LILBURN -- Opponents of a mosque being planned by a Muslim congregation in the metro Atlanta suburb of Lilburn are planning a protest.

Opponents are planning to protest Monday night outside the Lilburn City Council meeting, according to reports.

The congregation plans to submit a third request to the city for rezoning of four acres at the corner of U.S. Highway 29 and Hood Road so they can build a 20,000 square foot mosque and a 200 space parking lot.

Twice in the past, the city has denied requests to change the zoning.

The city council is scheduled to hear the congregation's most recent proposal later this month.
