20151223_131548Proposed church use of the historic Central Commercial building in downtown Kingman has sparked controversy for several months. The Kingman City Council voted 5-2 December 15 to deny the required conditional use permit.  Council member Jen Miles expressed support for the church but said it is not a good fit for that location and that space is available elsewhere in the community. The church and the owners of the building are weighing whether they accept the Council vote or if they challenge it, possibly through litigation.
