Builder’s to be present at First Step Shelter, Inc., Board Meeting.

Last week Roseanne Tornatore, told the City Council there were “huge things to tell you,” and Tornatore hasn’t elaborated much on what these ‘huge plans’ are.


First Step Shelter, Inc., has been circulating through a lot of conversation since it opened its doors over a month ago. Just last week the shelter was the main topic of a long discussion at the Daytona Beach City Council meeting, where board member Roseanne Tornatore claimed the shelter board has “huge things” in the works during their board meeting which is scheduled for later on this afternoon.


Tornatore seems to have rallied local builders to join the board meeting, in hopes to discuss constructing the safe zone that Daytona Beach City Council and the other city officials have been waiting for.


As it stands, today’s meeting seems to be referencing the safe zone financials, location and approval of bids that local builders can make while on-site for the meeting. Configurations for an exterior safe zone seem to be more favorable for the Executive Director of the Shelter Victoria Fahlberg and other board members who feel an indoor safe zone could conflict with residents and staff of the shelter.


Ponce Inlet Town Council Member, Bill Milano states “hopefully by the end of the meeting we’ll have a safe zone,” which has been a major concern all around.


The First Step Shelter, Inc., board meeting is scheduled for today at 4 p.m. at the shelter located five miles off Interstate 95.
