Chandler mosque set for completion in fallPosted: Updated:
CHANDLER -- A Chandler mosque is nearing completion following 12 years of delays and setbacks, escalating costs, and several turnovers of building contractors.
Part of the three-story Islamic Center of the East Valley will be ready for Ramadan on Sept. 1.
Mosque members say that's a miracle compared to the way things looked a couple of months ago, just before trustees brought a new contractor into the picture.
The mosque is set to be completed in its entirety in the fall.
