Zoning? We have something called zoning?
Darryl Enriquez for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting a proposed shelter has been delayed because of something called “zoning.”
Bernie Juno, executive director of the Hebron House of Hospitality, just said that plans to open a shelter for single men at St. Matthias Episcopal Church, 111 Main St., are now on hold until it can get a zoning variance from the city.
Apparently, there’s no zoning that allows shelters, so Hebron House must present its plans to the Board of Zoning Appeals on Jan. 14, she said.
I wonder what is this “variance” of which Darryl speaks. Does the city council know about it?
Next somebody will tell me we actually have a definition in this “zoning” for parkland. Wouldn’t that be neat?
