Hospitality House is generally good neighbor, planning commissioners say

After considerable procedural wrangling Tuesday night, a downtown homeless welcome center was OK’d for at least another year, but planning commissioners told center leaders they should consider long-term options outside the downtown as well.

The Hospitality House, 230 South Church St., mostly has met original approval conditions, commissioners and citizens said. However, the police department did report a slight increase in calls to the downtown when compared to the previous time last year.

Specifics, detailing whether the calls directly involved the center’s transients weren’t detailed Tuesday.

Planning commissioners approved the Hospitality House in September, subject to favorable reviews last December and then five months later.

In a year, center leaders are expected to discuss other potential locations and police are expected to provide a more details on crime stemming from the center.
