Braum's has agreed to delay a hearing on the future of Classen Circle to allow for a community meeting.

Oklahoma City Councilman Ed Shadid reports that Braum's has agreed to delay a Planning Commission hearing scheduled for August 24. A lawyer for the restaurant agreed to a request to move the meeting back to allow for a community meeting on the matter. The request asks for the application to be heard at the Sept. 28 meeting of the planning commission.

The hearing was to be held after the restaurant filed to rezone the area. If approved, the plan would allow a brand new Braum's restaurant to move in and force the other businesses out.

Classen Circle is home to the HiLo Club, the Drunken Fry, Classen Grill Charlie's Records and several apartments.

The time and location for the community meeting has not yet been determined.
