The South Suburban Humane Society will seek approval from the Homewood Board of Trustees for two measures that will enable the development of an adoption center at the former Homewood Animal Hospital.

At the board meeting Tuesday, trustees will consider changing the zoning map to designate the site at 2207 183rd St. as PL-2, Public Land and Open Spaces. The site is currently zoned B-1, Central Business District. The zoning ordinance amendment would also explicitly allow operation of an animal shelter and adoption center by a non-profit corporation as a special use in the PL-2 zone.

The board will consider a separate measure to grant a special use permit for SSHS to operate at the site.

SSHS announced early in January that a benefactor had given the building to the organization. The organization is conducting a fundraising campaign to help with renovations.

In other business, the board will consider:

  • Annual reports from the village Tree Committee, Green Committee, Firefighters Pension Board and Police Pension Board. 
  • A measure to authorize the addition of three part-time police officer positions.
  • A measure concerning the regulation of shopping carts.
  • A bid for concrete flatwork.
  • An ordinance authorizing the sale of surplus property.
The board meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in village hall, 2020 Chestnut Road.
