MISSION — It was standing room only Monday as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made a second attempt to get city council’s permission to build a church on the southwest corner of Bryan and Mile 2 Road. A petition for a conditional use permit (CUP) to build a church at that location failed to pass a city council vote last December when Councilwomen Norie Garza and Maria Elena Ramirez were the only two council members voting against the church’s request.
Since nine of the 12 neighbors living within 200 feet of the proposed site signed a petition opposing the church building, a four-fifths vote was required for the council to approve the CUP, instead of the usual three-fifths majority.
