COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Damascus Road Ministries announced on Friday that it will be purchasing the Dafnis Medical Building in Coldwater’s downtown for an undisclosed price. Damascus Road plans to convert the building on 23 North Hanchett Street into a discipleship center and 40-bed homeless shelter for men; it would also temporarily house the ministry’s substance abuse treatment center. All told, the expansion of Damascus Road’s activities and services could bring as many as 60 jobs into Branch County. The next step in the process could come as soon as Monday, when the Coldwater Planning Commission has its regular monthly meeting. Among the items on the Commission’s agenda: a request to set a public hearing to consider Damascus Road’s request for a Special Land Use Permit for their new property.
