Chillicothe Mayor Jack Everson says he will honor a request to form a committee to investigate possible legislation in regulating homeless shelters.

Chillicothe Councilmember Nancy Ames reported to Clear Channel News after attending the Chillicothe Planning Commission meeting Wednesday night.

Ames says Charles and Linda Crawford had requested a conditional use on the property at 322 Church Street, with property manager Jim Delong speaking on their behalf. 

The planning commission ruled against the request, according to Ames.

Residents and propery owners of the neighborhood, along with volunteers and clients for Seeds of Hope spoke as to whether the request was within bounds of the zoning regulations.
