Washington Street Homeless Shelter
This petition is to stop the City of Peekskill from Supporting a new Homeless shelter to be built at 851 Washington St, Peekskill NY 10566. The property is currently in contract to be purchased and the plan is to build up to a 50 bed homeless shelter. The location of such a facility should not be placed in the middle of a residential neighborhood; also, the current zoning of that address is C-3 commercial. The City Council would need to approve a special use permit for 851 Washington St. for use as a homeless shelter. The fact that CHHOP would purchase a building for $900,000 without approvals seems unrealistic unless they have received reassurances from the City officials that this project would be approved. We the Citzens of this community deserve a voice in what is built in our neighborhood. Please sign this petition in opposition of allowing a homeless shelter to be established on Washington St.
