City of Manassas Approves Special Use Permit for Building Expansion
Olaun Simmons of Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian, P.C. represented the Prince William Islamic Center in their pursuit of a special use permit to expand their place of worship located on Mathis Avenue. The PWIC, a well-established religious institution in the community for 15 years, has a growing congregation that needs additional space for worship services. The PWIC designed the expansion to include contemporary, high-quality architectural finishes and landscaping facing Mathis Avenue that will help to modernize the look of the Mathis Avenue corridor. On November 3, 2021, the City’s Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the special use permit application. On December 13, the City Council voted unanimously to approve PWIC’s special use permit application for the expansion. Olaun was instrumental in helping PWIC successfully navigate the procedural maze often associated with zoning applications.
