Manna Cafe and its director, Kenny York have won the first battle in there quest to rezone property for a homeless shelter near Kraft Street.

The City Council debated the issue for a hour  and then passed the ordinance  that would reduce the distance the shelter must be from residential property. Council members David Allen, Wallace Redd, James Lewis and Joel Wallace opposed the decision.

Advocates have been vocal about helping Manna Cafe in its mission to help the homeless and hungry. Businesses in the area are concerned with the impact a third shelter in the area will have on business. The new shelter, if it overcomes the remaining hurdles, will be situated on Frosty Morn.

A second reading will be held and the shelter will have to overcome or comply with  with six additional regulations before it becomes reality. The Frosty Morn site was used as a temporary residence during last winter’s extreme cold.
