Neighbors Sue City Over Code Blue Zoning Board of Appeals Decision

I have mixed feelings about the ongoing controversy over building a Code Blue shelter next to Shelters of Saratoga on Walworth Street.  I think that the prohibitions that were part of the Planning Board’s approval should minimize the impact of the facility on the neighborhood.

Unfortunately, my experience with the ZBA is that they have shown an extraordinary ineptitude in crafting their approvals to protect neighbors.   These projects also seem to have a power to creep beyond their original promises.

It is hard to believe given the requirement that it only be used for nights that drop below thirty-two degrees that the occupants will be hanging out in the neighborhood during the day.

Here is the story from the Saratogian.
