Zoning Commission Recommends Against Helping Hands Move to Former Ace Sign Building


The Springfield Planning and Zoning Commission is recommending against a change that would allow the Helping Hands homeless shelter to move into the former Ace Sign Company building on North Fourth Street.

 

But the final decision will be up to Springfield aldermen, who will take up the issue next month.

 

Commission members narrowly rejected the zoning request after hearing from nearby residents who fear the facility will increase problems with loitering, public intoxication and crime in that neighborhood.

 

Helping Hands executive director Rod Lane says the shelter would bring more security and oversight that should improve, not increase, the problems in that area.
