Traverse City expects a big turnout next month for a public hearing on emergency homeless shelters.
There are no specific zoning guidelines today.
Under the proposal, emergency shelters would be allowed in 10 city districts.
A section of Wellington Street where a consortium of churches would like to run a shelter does fall within one of those districts.
But City Planner Russ Soyring says there would be more hurdles for the group to cross, if these rules were adopted.
