Boise's Interfaith Sanctuary has approval to move forward with its new location.
The Boise City Council voted 4-2 Tuesday to approve the 30 conditions the facility must meet to occupy the old Salvation Army building on West State Street.
The conditions include a maximum of 205 beds, safe syringe disposal, separating family spaces from individual spaces and limiting outdoor activities from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. All neighborhood concerns are to be addressed first with Interfaith Sanctuary's Executive Director Jodi Peterson-Stigers.
"I feel so good. I feel the partnership that came from the whole public process will ensure that the shelter has the right support, and the conditions make us better," said Peterson-Stigers.
The conditions will be reviewed by the city council in about six months. An exact date for that meeting has not yet been set.
