Rediscovered mosques in Washington are a rare sight in the city, but they’re here for you.
Here’s a look at what you need to know.
WHAT IS REDUCED VIEW?

A large mosque in the historic Old Downtown area.
(CBC News) A new mosque is currently under construction in the Old Downtown.
The mosque will house about 300 worshippers.
The Redding City Council approved a $12 million plan for the mosque last month.
The building, at 2201 E. 14th St., was built in 1871 and was once home to the first American mosque.
(Facebook) The city’s planning committee will consider the mosque’s plans for the next two weeks.
The project will be overseen by the Redding city attorney’s office, which is currently reviewing the mosque application.
The council will vote on the application this coming Thursday.
WHAT’S THE RESTRICTION ON THE PAST AND FUTURE?
Redacted plans for a new mosque have been filed with the city and are subject to the public comment period.
This means the Redding City Council could vote on a proposal at any time.
A public hearing is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2018.
WHAT ABOUT THE BUILDING IN REDLANDS PLAZA?
Redding City Manager James Sow said that the Reddin Plaza was closed to public access in April 2017.
In October 2018, the city opened it to the general public.
Sow explained the project will include an exterior and interior remodeling and will include renovations to the roof, windows and exterior lighting.
