The shelter would provide individuals experiencing homelessness an overflow shelter opportunity on nights 32 degrees and below.

A subdivision of a 20.49-acre lot into two lots to facilitate ownership transfer of a nonprofit wrestling center at 3221 Mendenhall Loop Road. The proposed wrestling center lot is 0.94 acres. (SMP2021 0005)

The purpose of this subdivision is to subdivide the wrestling center onto its own lot so that it can take advantage of a nonprofit property tax exemption.  A two lot subdivision would usually be approved by the Director, but there are complex lot access issues which complicate further development and elevate the decision to the Planning Commission level.  Development plans for the larger lot are not known at this time.
