Shelter lawsuit moves forward

Shelter From the Storm has moved forward with a complaint for injunctive relief and damages against Union County.

The suit, filed Wednesday morning at the Union County Courthouse, alleges Union County failed to seek resolutions that would minimize the adverse impact to Shelter From the Storm upon the nonprofit’s displacement from its advocacy center at 1111 Fifth St. Shelter From the Storm, which provides services to victims of domestic violence, was ordered in an April 1 letter from the county’s legal counsel to vacate the building by Sept. 1.

The county seeks to construct a $3.1 million courthouse on the footprint of the Shelter From the Storm building, which was erected in 1998 with the help of a $487,040 community block grant on the Union County campus. The building is owned by the county, which has leased it to the shelter since its employees moved in. The building would be razed to accommodate construction of the new courthouse.

The complaint alleges the county did not provide assistance to Shelter From the Storm as required under ORS 35.510 and the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act.
