The Morgantown Planning Commission recommended not moving a sober living home into the city. That was discussed at Thursday night's meeting.
The background to this story is the board was thinking about removing a lodging or rooming house from Spruce Street in the B-4 zoning district of downtown and turning it into a sober living home called Morgantown Sober Living.
According to city officials, some residents were concerned about the change and that had a lot to do with their decision to not move forward with it.

"The history behind why this recommendation was made because there was a lot of community concern, a lot of community dialogue and discussion recently on whether a project that was proposed around downtown was the right type of use in the downtown, " said Chris Fletcher,  Director of Development Services.
The matter will be discussed at the next council meeting.
