The Oshkosh Common Council unanimously approved a conditional use permit to allow the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community-Oshkosh Chapter to establish a mosque and community center across from Oshkosh West High School.

 

Councilors voted 7-0 to grant the conditional use permit to the group to establish a mosque at 300 N. Eagle St. over adjacent property owners’ concerns that traffic, noise, 3:30 a.m. daily prayer services and that frequency of use will disrupt quality of life in the neighborhood.
