Central Union Mission Requests Delay To Feb. 19 Hearing

The following message was forwarded by Councilman Graham:

Dear Georgia Avenue constituents,

 

In response to issues raised by the community, Central Union Mission has requested a delay of its special exception hearing with BZA, scheduled for next Tuesday 2/19, in order to consider “significant changes to the scope and use” of the 170-bed men’s homeless shelter it had planned for the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue.  While the community was fully-prepared for the hearing with countless letters, petitions, testimony and research, it agrees that the Mission needs to re-think its plan, which was neither neighborhood-compatible nor effective for transitioning people out of homelessness.  The residents and businesses of Georgia Avenue also extend a special ‘thank you’ to Councilmember Jim Graham for his efforts on this matter.  Residents should not attend the hearing on 2/19 as it will be rescheduled for sometime in the fall of 2008.

 

Sincerely,

Georgia Avenue Redevelopment Defense Squad (GARDS)”

So is this good news or bad news?
