Annual Clifton Men’s Shelter Thank You Dinner

In 2005 the Clifton Men’s Shelter was nearly destroyed by a arson attack. The Clifton House men moved to Epworth for 18 months while their building was being built back. Every year the Clifton family come to the Epworth Church in November to have a dinner to say thank you. This year’s dinner was held on Saturday, November 16th. Please visit this Facebook page for pictures from the event.

Correction – November Zoning Agenda – 549 Oakdale Rd, not 505

Due to an inadvertent clerical error, 505 Oakdale Rd was listed on the November Zoning Agenda.  The proper agenda (with correction in bold) is as follows:

The November Zoning Committee Meeting is scheduled for November 4, 2015.  At this time, there is one residential variance application and one commercial special exception application as follows:

299 Moreland Avenue – V-15-222

Applicant seeks a special exception from the zoning ordinance to reduce the number of required off-street parking spaces from 54 spaces to 24 spaces to allow the conversion of retail to restaurant. (Pending lot consolidation)


549 Oakdale Road – V-15-320

Applicant seeks a variance from the zoning regulations to reduce the north side yard setback from the required 7 ft. to 3.28 ft. to allow for the construction of a house addition. 

The meeting will be held at Epworth Church at 1561 Mclendon Avenue at 7:00 p.m. on November 4, 2015.  We hope everyone can join us!
