Upper Oxford Township Zoning Hearing Board Grants

ISD Approval for Cemetery

The second hearing for the ISD application to obtain approval of Special Exception for Cemetery use was held last Tuesday evening, August 16 at the Oxford Area High School. In this final hearing the three members of the Upper Oxford Township Zoning Hearing Board, Alhamdulillah unanimously granted approval of the requested Special Exception to allow Cemetery use for the property in Upper Oxford Township, PA which ISD intends to buy.

However, this approval includes several conditions. Some of which may have considerable financial and other impacts. Prior to buying the property, ISD will carefully review all the conditions and their impacts after receiving the decision in writing.

May Allah  (SWT) reward the entire community for its strong support for this important project.
