Ken Larsen's web site - Chapel Hill Homeless Shelter Issue


In 2010 a petition with 1201 signatures was presented to the Chapel Hill Town Council advocating that a Men's Homeless Shelter not be built on Homestead Road.  The petition was rebuffed by the Council, and ground was broken for the shelter in 2014.

In response to a June 2014 email query, Tina responded  "We had a very large contingent of concerned citizens asking for the town to find a better site, all of whom were vilified as bad people who hate the homeless(very not true).  This was a contentious issue and one I could go on about at length.  The process was terrible and politically driven. "

This sounds exactly how the Ephesus-Fordham petition was treated in May of 2014.
