The Volunteers of America purchased the industrial property and planned to seek a Conditional Use Permit to allow for a residential treatment facility for a large population of criminal offenders. The program serves an important public purpose, however, Conditional Use Permits stay with the property indefinitely and the proposal conflicted with established redevelopment plans for industrial uses that create jobs and expand the tax base.  Amy voted to deny the Conditional Use Permit and support the community’s plans.
