Last evening, City officials were notified by the attorney representing the owner of the
property we had sought to acquire for a men’s shelter that the owner was withdrawing
his signature from the Purchase and Sale Agreement with the City.

Obviously, this is unexpected and disappointing news. But it will not deter the City and
the County from our serious intent to develop a new shelter facility. Together we have
laid out a $6 million dollar commitment to this project, and we are focused on moving it
forward as expeditiously as possible. Alternative locations are already being examined
anew. In the meantime, I want to express my gratitude to County Executive Parisi, to
members of the Common Council, and to other community leaders for their support of
this effort.
