Cromwell zoning board votes down mosque proposal

Middlesex

CROMWELL, Conn. (WTNH) — A proposal to build a mosque in Cromwell is now dead.

At Tuesday night’s planning and zoning meeting, neighbors raised concerns about parking and traffic. They say they were concerned about traffic and parking if the project went through.

The Knights of Columbus Hall on Main Street was proposed to turn into a Muslim house of worship. The Middletown-based Omar Islamic Center took charge in the plan.

The zoning commission voted 4 to 3 against the plans.

The next public hearing is scheduled for August 20th.
