Sioux Falls will be getting a new shelter for the homeless despite opposition from several residents.
City councilors have upheld the planning commission's decision to grant a conditional-use permit for the shelter.
A business owner in the Whittier neighborhood where the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls plans to build the shelter had filed an appeal with city council after the commission issued the permit.
The diocese plans to convert an empty warehouse located near several buildings with programs for the needy into the Bishop Dudley Hospitality Center. It would offer meals, showers, laundry facilities and overnight shelter among other services.
Residents say there already are facilities for the needy in their area, and they don't want more. They also say the proposed center would be near a school.
