Brentwood City Council approves expansion of Shepherd’s Gate shelter for women and children | News (Jake Menez)

Shepherd’s Gate, a women’s shelter on Sycamore Avenue in Brentwood, will soon be able to help more women in need following the 4-0 approval Tuesday night of an expansion to their existing facility. Councilmember Pa’tanisha Pierson recused herself from the discussion to “avoid the appearance of impropriety” due to interacting with Shepherd’s Gate sometimes in her role as an attorney.

This expansion was previously approved 4-0 by the Planning Commission in November.

The addition to the Shepherd’s Gate property would be another building that would comprise three housing units, a laundry room and pantry. A new parking area with three spaces and a trash enclosure would be constructed outside of the building for its residents.
