The Community Inn provides overnight shelter and other services for more than 100 people each night, but is in a dispute with the city over the zoning of its current location on Winchester Road.

It is now looking at other sites across the city as potential new locations to call home.

The church and homeless shelter is showing the list of proposed locations to city officials, business leaders, community leaders, families, and neighborhood associations.

The public will be able to leave written comments about each location from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Central Christian Church in Lexington on Monday, Nov. 4.

The new locations being considered by Community Inn are:
166 N Martin Luther King Blvd.
1353 W Main St.
1400 N Forbes Rd.
353 Waller Ave.
219 E Short St.

The process is still in the initial stages, and there is no planned date to choose a location.
