Zoning hearing meeting rescheduled for Fairview Road group home
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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
