The Martha’s Vineyard Commission will host what promises to be a well-attended meeting on April 17.
The meeting will feature public hearings on two controversial projects in Oak Bluffs: the Moujabber garage on the North Bluff and a proposal to renovate Bradley Memorial Church at the corner of Dukes County and Masonic avenues into a multi-use complex featuring affordable housing, artists’ workshops and a museum.
Because of the expected large turnout, commission officials have moved the meeting to the Oak Bluffs Senior Center at 21 Wamsutta avenue.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. with a public hearing on plans to renovate Shirley’s Hardware in Vineyard Haven. The public hearing on the Moujabber project is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. The hearing on the Bradley Memorial Church development is set for 8 p.m.
The hearing on the Moujabber project had been scheduled for Thursday, April 10, but was moved both because of the town election in Oak Bluffs and also so that it could be moved to a larger venue to accommodate a bigger crowd.
