A Fox Chapel zoning hearing board meeting scheduled this week to discuss a group home along Fairview Road has been postponed until May 22, at 7 p.m.

The meeting was put off at the request of ReMed, the company that intends to operate a home for disabled people at 709 Fairview Road.

Representatives said the company plans to house eight people, all with brain injuries, who will have 24-hour staffed assistance.

Zoning officer Bob Smith previously said ReMed did not demonstrate that the proposed use met the definition of “family,” as in the borough's zoning ordinance.

The meeting will be in the municipal office, 401 Fox Chapel Road. The zoning board's recommendation will go to Fox Chapel Council, who will make the final decision.
