An application to allow a homeless shelter on Lake Avenue in Danbury will get a public hearing next month.  The Zoning Commission met this week and referred the petition to amend regulations to add transitional shelter for the homeless as a special exception use to the Planning Commission.  Notification will be sent to the surrounding community.  A public hearing will be held by the Danbury Zoning Commission on September 28th.  It will likely to be via Zoom since the last hearing on this property had a large number of virtual participants, more than could likely be accommodated safely in Council Chambers due to COVID-related protocols.  The former Super 8 motel has been housing the homeless since the start of the pandemic when a gubernatorial executive order went into effect to allow more spacing in congregate settings.  Governor Lamont's emergency powers and orders are set to expire at the end of September.
