Anna Louise Inn gets conditional use approval

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Historic Conservation Board has approved Cincinnati Union Bethel's conditional use application for the Anna Louise Inn.  

Cincinnati Union Bethel went before the Historic Conservation Board for a second time on Monday as part of the zoning process for their planned renovation of the Anna Louise Inn, which provides safe and affordable housing for women. 

In May 2012, Judge Nadel's ruling in the lawsuit filed by Western & Southern against the Anna Louise Inn and the City of Cincinnati remanded all matters back through the City's zoning process. 

Western & Southern has been trying to block a renovation in order to buy the property. 

"We are very pleased," says Stephen T. MacConnell, president and CEO of Cincinnati Union Bethel. "We are also pleased that this ruling puts to rest whether we are zoned properly or not, and we may now proceed with our planned renovations.  That is a win-win for everyone in Cincinnati."

Representatives of Western & Southern have said throughout the legal proceedings that they are just interested in whether the Anna Louise Inn is zoned properly. They have said they are interested in the property to encourage economic growth in the area.

Cincinnati Union Bethel wants to convert the dormitory-style rooms of the Anna Louise Inn into efficiencies so that each resident has her own bathroom and kitchen.
