Haven House Inc. has proposed a transitional living facility in the Tall Timbers neighborhood southeast of Glacier Valley Elementary School.
In a rush to open the facility by mid-March 2014, Haven House did not fully consider the zoning regulations applicable to its leased property at 3202 Malissa Drive.
In January, the City of Juneau ruled, “Haven House best fits the definition of a halfway house” and therefore is not permitted to operate at this address. The applicable zoning district is D-5.
Haven House appealed the city’s decision to the planning commission.
