Mayor Sheline Issues Statement on Passed Shelter Ordinance

LEWISTON, ME (September 22, 2022) — Mayor Carl L. Sheline states, “I’m pleased with the shelter ordinance that the City Council passed last night. We were able to come together – the Council, the Shelter Committee, and our community – to create workable solutions that will better address homelessness in Lewiston. While the moratorium that preceded this work was unnecessary to create these ordinance changes, the changes have made our community’s existing shelters and any future shelter in Lewiston more accessible to some of our unhoused neighbors. I am especially pleased that the Council ultimately decided to avoid requirements that would have added needless, bureaucratic burdens on Lewiston’s current and future shelter providers and those they serve. I look forward to future partnerships between the City, shelter providers, and housing experts to work toward responsibly and actively addressing Lewiston’s homeless challenges.”
