THE POTTERS HOUSE is looking toward the future with possible expansion plans in the works.
To do so, the organization would need to amend its future land use designation from rural places zoning to public institutional.
The Jackson County Planning Commission recommended approval Thursday of the request and it will go to the board of commissioners for action when it meets at 6 p.m. on Monday, September 21, at the courthouse.
The Potters House, located at 655 Potters House Road, Jefferson, is a faith-based recovery program for men who are often indigent and suffer from dependency issues. They live on the Potters House property for a year while undergoing counseling and receiving spiritual guidance, as well as vocational training for future jobs.
