Attorneys for the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton are appealing in court a zoning appeals board decision to disallow the construction of a mosque on South Alpha-Bellbrook Road in Sugarcreek Twp.

The Sugarcreek Twp. Zoning Board of Appeals voted 5-0 on Jan. 10 to deny a conditional use that would have permitted the building of a mosque for up to 975 people and a family center for an additional 400 on a 15-acre site zoned estate-residential.
