NIAGARA FALLS – The city Zoning Board of Appeals on Tuesday night will consider whether to uphold the Department of Code Enforcement’s order to halt overnight housing for the homeless at a Ferry Avenue shelter.

Operators of the Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission are fighting an April 8 cease and desist order which put a stop to emergency overnight housing at the shelter at 1023 Ferry Ave. The dispute has not affected other services provided at the shelter, including a long-term residential program and a meal program.

Tuesday’s meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers in City Hall, 745 Main St.
