On March 12, 2004 Home News Tribune reported, "More than 30 Edison residents and the township's engineer crowded into Borough Hall last night to oppose construction of a Hindu temple they say will disrupt their peaceful neighborhood. The International Swaminarayan Satsang Organization wants to erect a one-story, 14,000-square-foot temple on a 6.7-acre plot in South Plainfield, near the Edison border. Fleet Avenue, the lone roadway to the site, cuts across six dead-end streets in a quiet Edison neighborhood."
