Taft Hall will serve as an overnight warming shelter through the end of March after the City was empowered with emergency declaration powers at Monday’s regular session of the Lincoln City City Council.

Taft Hall owners Don and Debbie William’s property at 1206 SE 48th Place will continue to serve as an emergency shelter for the homeless in sub-40-degree weather on a one-time only basis.

In order to resume in its role as a shelter next winter, the applicants would have to submit zoning and conditional use permit applications and pay for a zone text change for the Taft Village Core Zone.
