Status conference to be held in case of Danbury v. Dorothy Day Hospitality House

A status conference is scheduled in the two cases of Dorothy Day Hospitality House versus Danbury.  The hearings are set for May 28th. 

A Hartford Judge had asked that the City and Dorothy Day come to an agreement so he wouldn't have to issue a ruling, but the Zoning Board of Appeals voted in September to deny exceptions to zoning rules.  After learning their permit expired more than 30 years ago and a renewal was never sought, Dorothy Day applied for variances to driveway width, parking lot size and setbacks. 

The more-than century old building on Spring Street does not comply with current zoning regulations.  The homeless shelter operator needed the variances in order to apply for a special exception before the Planning Commission.
