House of Rainbow Faces Daily Fines For Violating City Zoning Rules


A hearing officer has ruled that a group of halfway houses on Springfield’s north end is operating in violation of city zoning rules… and the owner will face daily fines until the violations are corrected.

 

The decision against the four House of Rainbow properties comes even though the homes have operated along North 10th Street for nearly a decade.

 

The State Journal-Register reports the hearing officer rejected arguments that each home’s occupants… up to five state prison parolees on electronic monitoring… constitutes a “family” under city zoning rules.

 

An attorney for House of Rainbow says he will seek a court review of the ruling.
