In a category we’re now calling “What are the local politicians doing,” it seems Republican State Senate candidate Slawomir Platta has come up with the most useful way to fight the proposed Glendale shelter.

Yesterday, August 23, an amendment to the application for 78-16 Cooper Avenue, Glendale, the site of the proposed four-story homeless shelter, was filed with the Department of Buildings.

It should be noted that a significant change in the Certificate of Occupancy comments states: “This facility will be classified as a lodging house. Sponsored by DHS.” (DHS is the Department of Homeless Services, just in case you haven’t been paying attention).

This August 23rd amendment to the original application on March 10, 2015 is rather disturbing to us.

We were told that the Glendale Coalition, a committee formed by Glendale activists to fight against a “massive” shelter in Glendale, met last night with a plan of action against the use of this property for such a large shelter.
