A Walnut Creek-based Sufi congregation is facing community opposition to its plans for a new complex. Sufism Reoriented’s proposal calls for a 66,000 square-foot facility including a worship hall, classrooms, a cafe, a bookstore and a chorus rehearsal room. But some residents say the facility, which would be bigger than Hearst Castle or the White House, would cause traffic and parking problems.
