Waterloo Board Approves Early Plan for New Mosque

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) A board has approved a permit for a group planning to build an Islamic mosque, cemetery and soccer field on Waterloo's southeast side.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the Board of Adjustment unanimously approved a conceptual permit Tuesday for the Bosnian Islamic Association of Waterloo's development. The board also supported plans for a 5 acre cemetery, which is less than the 30 acres required by city law.

Craig Ceilley, who is selling the land, says the local Muslim community doesn't need a large cemetery. He says it will take them 100 years to fill up even the small cemetery.

Some neighbors earlier had raised concerns about traffic at the development, but there were no objections Tuesday.

The Bosnian Islamic Association still must gain approval of a detailed site plan.
