The Greenfield Plan Commission decided to keep land the city had set aside for a future road, rather than allow a congregation that wants to build a Buddhist temple in Greenfield incorporate the land into its building plans.
The action Tuesdaydealt a blow to the proposed temple that some on the commission and some neighbors see as too big for the site.
But an official of the congregation said after the meeting that it would be back with scaled-down plans.
"We'll change it a little here and there to make it perfect," said Andy Tran, temple controller.
The Phuoc Hau Buddhist Temple of Milwaukee, 1575 W. Oklahoma Ave., Milwaukee, proposed an 8,100-square-foot temple on 1.5 acres at 44th Street and Edgerton Avenue. The temple owns one acre and was hoping the city would vacate the half-acre it has been saving to eventually put 44th Street through. The city originally acquired that right of way from the parcel that the temple now owns.
