Garden Grove officials gave a green light this week to the state's first Cao Dai church, despite residents who protested having a religious facility in their neighborhood. Council members granted a conditional use permit Tuesday for construction of a 2,150-square-foot church and a caretaker's home nearly the same size at 8791 Orangewood Ave. The facility would provide about 200 followers of the Cao Dai faith in Orange County a place to pray aside from their homes and offices.
