FLORENCE — Officials with Room at the Table are appealing the city of Florence's decision that they cannot operate at a Wood Avenue location.

The appeal, filed in Lauderdale County Circuit Court, also asks the court to review the city's zoning ordinance to see if there is anywhere the agency can operate in the city.

The filing is listed as an appeal and complaint, with Room in the Inn Shoals Inc. listed as the plaintiff, and the city of Florence and city's Board of Zoning Adjustment as defendants.

Room in the Inn oversees the Room at the Table program.

The Board of Zoning Adjustment in January upheld the city's denial of a certificate of occupancy for Room at the Table.

Building Department officials told the organization it cannot operate at 1205 N. Wood Ave. because it does not meet the definition of an event center in the city's zoning ordinance.
