Public hearing planned for Auburn homeless shelter: What revisions have been made?

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

The Auburn Planning Board has announced a public hearing for June 4th to discuss a revised proposal for an 80-bed homeless shelter on Grant Avenue.

The session, set for 6:30 p.m. in the Auburn City Council chambers, follows modifications to the original shelter plan, aimed at addressing public concerns and reducing the facility’s impact on the neighborhood.

Changes to the proposed shelter include a more compact building design and improved vehicle access with a second entrance added.

Notably, the revised plan by Housing Visions, a Syracuse-based organization, also reduces the number of transitional housing units from nine to eight.

The public hearing reflects the heightened community interest and ongoing debate about the shelter, which would replace a smaller 16-bed facility.
