FARMINGTON — The Farmington City Council voted shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday to strike down a proposed zoning change that would allow Masada House to open a men's transitional group care facility at 2107 Schofield Lane.

The council voted 3-0 against the zoning change. Jason Sandel, Mary Fisher and Dan Darnell voted against the zoning change. Gayla McCulloch abstained from voting because of a conflict of interest.

Dozens of community members voiced their opposition to the zoning change. Women currently in Masada House's transitional program for women also spoke at the meeting.

Immediately following the vote, Karen Chenault, Masada House's program director, said the organization will go back to its board of directors to determine a new course of action.
