The house and property at 1240 Armstrong Mill Rd. in Lexington, Ky., Friday, January 9, 2015. The Islamic Center of Lexington wants the city to grant a request for a special permit to build a new center off of Armstrong Mill Road which would include the property where this house is located. The issue will come before the Board of Adjustment at the end of this month. But neighbors have already raised concerns about the center with notices being posted on River Run and Gainesway neighborhood association web sites. People are saying the center would increase traffic and cut into neighborhood green space.Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
