A Judicial "alternative dispute resolution" has been scheduled for next month in the case of the City of Danbury versus Dorothy Day Hospitality House. Danbury officials discovered in 2016 that Dorothy Day never renewed their permit and has been operating without one for about 30 years. The session to help the sides resolve their disputes before a trial will take place March 12th in Torrington. The Danbury Zoning Board of Appeals denied exceptions to zoning rules on driveway width, parking lot size and setbacks for the more-than century old building. The homeless shelter operator needed the variances in order to apply for a special exception before the Planning Commission, in order to secure a new permit.
