Chico, Calif.-- The Chico City Council has voted to approve the sale of a parcel of land in South Chico to the Jesus Center.

This paves the way for the shelter to eventually move from it’s current location on Park Avenue, to the MLK parkway near the Torres Shelter.

Council members say the location will eventually serve as an area of consolidated services for the homeless community’

The council voted 5 – 2, with Karl Ory and Ann Schwab offering the dissenting votes.

Dozens of people packed the council chambers at Tuesday night’s meeting, including several representing “Chico First,” a community action group dedicated to keeping Chico’s streets clean and safe.

A dollar amount for the sale has not yet been discussed.

Mayor Sean Morgan says there still must be an appraisal done on the property.
