Group home plan rejected

November 17, 2015

Plans to establish a group home for eight residents on East Buchtel Avenue were met by an adverse report at Monday’s Council meeting. Group homes are limited to no more than five adults under current city rules, and Council chose not to grant an exception. Council passed an ordinance approving the sale of city-owned land to Open M for an expansion of its campus. Open M serves needy and homeless people in Summit County.
