“Can’t we build a shelter that contributes to the character of a neighborhood instead of being a monstrous eyesore?”

“Dear PoPville,

I thought your readers might find the BZA submission for the Ward 5 family homeless shelter to be of interest. They are requesting multiple zoning exceptions including height, loading zone, and parking. Not sure where the other shelters’ plans are in their process, but if the board approves this, it could set the tone for zoning leniency with the other shelters’ plans. Needless to say, several neighbors are very unhappy with the exceptions. Can’t we build a shelter that contributes to the character of a neighborhood instead of being a monstrous eyesore?”
