Church and City of St. Cloud Come To Agreement On Tiny House for Homeless Use

Facebook Twitter

10/04/2017 - 12:00 PM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A St. Cloud church has reached an agreement with the city over a tiny house built to shelter the homeless.

St. John's Episcopal Church filed a federal lawsuit after the city zoning board denied a request for a permit to locate the 123-square-foot house on church property. The case was based on a federal law that allows churches greater property use rights and limits zoning interference.

The St. Cloud Times reports an attorney for the church, Robert Feigh, says the city has approved a permit for a larger replacement house to be built that is compliant with state building codes. The tiny house will be removed when the 384-square-foot house is completed.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minnesota woman was among concert-goers who fled in panic when a gunman opened fire at a Las Vegas outdoor country music festival in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Taylor Dumbrovski, from Cold Spring, says she heard what sounded like fireworks, but soon realized it was gunfire. She says that in the midst of the chaos people were helping others as the crowd scattered. Dumbrovski was at the Jason Aldean concert with her fiance, brother and sister-in-law.
