Opponents of Yakima's homeless shelter on Englewood Avenue have filed an appeal of a hearing examiner ruling that allows the operation of a permanent shelter at the site. Yakima attorney Rob Case filed the appeal Monday on behalf of 12 property owners near the building at 1702 Englewood Avenue. The appeal to the Yakima City Council is expected to be heard within the next two months. The official notice of appeal to the parties involved is expected to be sent out on Friday.

And while the appeal process is proceeding the city  has extended to June 30 the use of the building on Englewood Avenue as a shelter. A previous agreement called for the shelter on March 15.
