St. Cloud Panel Delays Decision on Mosque Plan

St. Cloud City HallST. CLOUD (AP) – St. Cloud’s Planning Commission has delayed a decision on the local Islamic Center’s proposal to build a new mosque and related buildings amid opposition from some neighbors.

The Islamic Center of St. Cloud wants to build in a mostly residential area. That requires a decision by the city on whether to change zoning in the area in question.

Nearby residents say their concerns are about traffic congestion in the area, not religion. The center’s president says he’s willing to scale back some of the plans for the site to compromise with neighbors.

The Planning Commission tabled the decision Tuesday night to research the project further. The St. Cloud City Council has final say on whether the plans go forward.
