At a Wednesday night meeting spanning more than four hours, with more than 150 people in attendance, the Land Use Commission recommended granting a special use permit for the Margarita Inn to serve as a residence for the homeless. The permit, approved by a 5-3 vote, must ultimately go before the City Council.
“Of course, I’m pleased,” said Betty Bogg, chief executive officer of Connections for the Homeless, as she was hugged by a supporter after the commission’s vote. “We are very relieved.” (Photo by Richard Cahan)
