Meeting set about synagogue suit

The proposed construction of a new Greenwich Reform Synagogue in Cos Cob will be one of the topics of a neighborhood meeting tonight, Oct. 16, at 7:30 p.m.

Neighbors have opposed the construction of the synagogue in the middle of an otherwise residential neighborhood in Cos Cob and the meeting will provide an update on the situation, as well as look at issues with the town zoning process over the last two years. The meeting will be held in the Cos Cob Firehouse’s meeting room and people can enter through the side door on Sinawoy Road.

The town recently settled a lawsuit brought forward by the Greenwich Reform Synagogue claiming the Zoning Board of Appeals had discriminated against them by not voting to grant a key land use approval. As part of that settlement the size of the proposed synagogue was reduced slightly and the board granted that approval.

However, neighbor lawsuits against the town over earlier approvals are still ongoing and the meeting is expected to contain an update over how those are proceeding as well as discussing what potential next steps could be taken by the community. There will be time for questions from attendees.
