In order to move forward on their plans, the mission is asked that the City rezone the parcels as C-3 (Central Business).
The mission’s Executive Director Brad Hopkins thanked the Council for their consideration of the request.
During a previous reading, Hopkins attended the meeting accompanied by a number of individuals who were part of the discipleship recovery program.
Many of these individuals told the Council the rescue mission had helped them turn their lives around and kick their chemical dependencies.
The mission’s plans for the North Park Street property is to provide both men’s and women’s housing.
“Our plan is to create a bit more of a campus atmosphere,” Hopkins added at the first reading, saying the goal is to get people independent and restored into the community.
The parcels were previously zoned as M-1 (Limited Industrial) and C-2 (General Business). They are located at 221 and 227 North Park Street.
