LUMBERTON — The City Council on Monday is expected to greenlight a new location for homeless veterans.
The K&L Veteran Affairs Home, a halfway house, is moving from 903 Glenn St. to 411 Carthage Road, and needs a conditional-use permit approved by the council.
The following conditions must be met by the halfway house: Only honorably discharged veterans will be allowed to reside at the location, no more than seven veterans can live there at a single time, no felons will be allowed residency and the driveway must be paved within two years of permit approval.
The Glenn Street location was approved for occupancy on Aug. 8, 2011, but according to Karla Carter, founder of the halfway house, the home is in foreclosure.
