City Council Denies Zoning Variance for Helping Hands

As expected, the Springfield City Council has rejected an attempt by the Helping Hands Homeless Shelter to move into a new location on North 4th Street.


Only Mayor Mike Houston and Alderman Joe McMenamin supported the zoning change… which was opposed by nearby residents and property owners who feared that the shelter would simply add to problems in the neighborhood.


Aldermen Sam Cahnman and Steve Dove are proposing a long-term lease to let the shelter stay at its current location, in a building that houses the city’s emergency overflow shelter.


But such a solution may be only temporary, since the building is in the eventual path of the planned railroad consolidation project.
