In one week, the Brookhaven Town Planning Board will revisit a proposal to convert an existing barn to a place of worship at 515 Mt. Sinai-Coram Road and will have the proposal up for discussion and questioning at the Planning Board Meeting Feb. 11.
The meeting comes over a month after the community came out to ask questions and voice both concerns and support for the proposed mosque. While traffic and parking issues were the chief concerns of those in attendance, some raised other questions such as what would be practiced and taught in the mosque, which would include classrooms as well, and if the property would become tax exempt, among others.
After the discussion, the planning board tabled a decision and set up another hearing on the project for this upcoming meeting so community members could come and get any other questions they may have answered. The proposal is set No.10 on the agenda under site plans. The meeting is scheduled to start at 4 p.m.
