9:30 P.M. – Planning Board Gives OK On Anew Center Plan

MANVILLE — The proposed relocation of the Anew Center from Jamestown to Ellery received a significant boost Wednesday with approval regarding a zoning law amendment from the Chautauqua County Planning Board.

The Salvation Army — which has run the center for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault for 30 years — is seeking to move operations to a more spacious location outside the city. The new building would allow for 19 staff and about 20 beds.

Attorney Adam Walters said the current Anew Center is “just not suited for the current needs,” and noted the property requires several renovations.
