Mayor to mediate talks on E. Lawrence shelter

April 10, 2006


East Lawrence residents and Salvation Army leaders will meet today to discuss a controversial plan to build a homeless shelter and service center near 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.

Mayor Mike Amyx will moderate a discussion between the groups at 6:30 p.m. today at City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets.

Amyx said he wants the groups to reach common ground on the key issues surrounding the shelter and determine how the project can move forward. The project still needs some approvals from City Hall.
