The Amarillo City Commission reversed a decision Tuesday by the Planning and Zoning Commission to allow a local non-profit to expand.
Roy Bowen of The Hope & Healing Place appealed the Zoning Commission's decision and won over the City Commission.
Bowen wants to expand his grief and counseling center to allow a larger group to participate in sessions.
The Zoning Commission originally objected to the plans because there would be only 8 inches between Bowen's property and those to his north.
But Bowen's neighbor also agrees with his plans and did not protest.
