Oppose Relocation of Lawrence Community Shelter

About Us

We are a group of East Lawrence citizens who are opposed to the relocation of the Lawrence Shelter to 2176 East 23rd Street (formerly Don’s Steakhouse).

We are concerned for the safety of our schools, homes, and businesses. We would like to have an informative meeting to educate the citizens in the surrounding area regarding the plans to bring this element to our neighborhood. Several East Lawrence citizens who oppose the relocation of the Lawrence Community Shelter have attended previous city meetings. These meetings have provided important information which needs to be communicated with the residents and business owners in East Lawrence.

The address of 2176 East 23rd Street was chosen as the new location for the Lawrence Community Shelter because the commissioners indicated the East Lawrence residents and business owners would have the least resistance to this relocation.

We would like to show the city commissioners that the East Lawrence residents and businesses are resisting this change for the relocation of the Lawrence Community Shelter.

The only way to successfully oppose the relocation of the Community Shelter is for the East Lawrence residents and business owners to stand up, give voice, and fight the change the City of Lawrence is trying to implement in our neighborhood. The opposing individuals need to show friendly force to indicate to the city commissioners that this change is not welcome in East Lawrence.

We currently have a petition started to shut this relocation down in the planning phase before it reaches the City Commission.

For questions, comments, concerns, opinions, and/or more information, please send us an Email.
