A public hearing scheduled regarding the site of the former Eagle Elementary School in West Bloomfield has been moved, to accomodate the Jewish Sukkot holiday.
The Township Zoning Board of Appeals will meet on Thursday to discuss a number of variances to the site plan for the Islamic Cultural Association, a local organization which hopes to build a mosque/community center at the site formerly used by Farmington Public Schools.
Township attorneys have requested that the ZBA interpret the township zoning ordinance with regard to several issues raised at the Aug. 15 Planning Commission meeting — including the height of the minaret and dome atop the mosque portion of the building, the size of the setback from the street, and the fencing separating the property from neighbors.
The ZBA will still meet at its originally-scheduled date Tuesday, however with one less item on the agenda.
Both public hearings begin at 5:30 p.m. in West Bloomfield Town Hall.
