A community in the west end wants the city to turn down an application for a proposed homeless shelter for men.
That's because it would be located near the intersection of Vaughan road and Oakwood Avenue, an area they say is full of drug dealers and criminial activity.
More than 400 community members have signed an online petition asking the city to turn down the application.
A meeting was organized by Andrew Ross, chair of the Oakwood Village Community Association was also held Wednesday night.
Residents say they don't oppose a shelter but the location.
However, they are concerned about what the men will do during the day when the shelter is closed.
The proposed shelter goes before the Community Development and Recreation Committee on August 14.
Councillor Josh Collesaid at the meeting that he was certain the shelter would be passed by committee and that a vote would go to council.
