Ellensburg Community Morning Show, Wednesday, June 12

Land behind the Foursquare Church is on the list of sites under consideration for a Sleep Center.


South Pearl Street site dropped from Sleep Center

HopeSource withdrew its Pathways property on South Ruby Street from consideration as a Sleep Center location. The Ellensburg City Council and the Kittitas County commissioners will meet at 5:30 p.m., Thursday in the Student Union Theatre to review the seven remaining locations options for a Sleep Center. The South Ruby Street site generated public opposition due to its proximity to a childcare center. In announcing the decision, HopeSource officials said they decided to withdraw to allow the process to move forward without the public divisiveness raised by the Pathways location. HopeSource intends to develop the site for 60 affordable housing units.
