Description

893 Clinton Avenue, a magnificent historic mansion, has been targeted as a potential site for a homeless shelter. Potential residents will have substance abuse and/or mental health issues severe enough to have led to homelessness. The group has been turned down TWICE by the Zoning Board of Approvals, but they are appealing to the Zoning Commission on the grounds that this shelter will help to "stabilize" our neighborhood where older homes have "outgrown their usefulness." Hearing will take place on Monday, April 26 at 6:45 pm at City Hall. Be there if you want to preserve the historic, residential character of our unique and beloved neighborhood.
