Under the plan, Anna Louise Inn residents will be allowed to stay at the current location for two years while a new space with larger living areas is completed. The Anna Louise Inn will keep the same name.

Anna Louise Inn attorney Tim Burke says the Historic Conservation Board voted unanimously this afternoon to approve the Inn as a conditional use. He said the use will not change.

The request is the latest plan to allow renovation for the 103 year old building. Months ago Western and Southern filed suit blocking any fix up. The company offered to buy the Lytle Park building and wants to turn it into luxury condominiums.

The historic downtown building houses low-income women.

Attorneys for the Anna Louise Inn will go before the Cincinnati Historic Conservation Board this afternoon for a second time. The board issued a favorable report last week. The 103 year old building housing low-income women is in need of renovation and attorney Tim Burke is trying a new tactic.

"Now we're asking the city to approve the entire Anna Louise Inn as a conditional use or a special assistance shelter but the uses won't change."
