HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Residents of a building in Huntington have been told to move out by Friday because of safety concerns.

City spokesman Bryan Chambers tells The Herald-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1aaqfh0 ) that city inspectors found numerous code violations at Hope Tower.

The building’s owner, Shane Polan, is partnering with Christ Temple Church in Huntington and Eddie James Ministries to create a residential treatment center for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts.

Chambers says the city doesn’t want to hinder that mission. But he says the city needs to ensure that the building is safe and secure.

Case managers will assist the tenants in finding new homes.



Chambers say up to 25 units in the building are occupied.

Businesses on the ground floor can remain in the building.
