Thomasville, Georgia --

The Jack Reid Memorial Foundation board members say they hoped a piece of property on Cherry Street could be rezoned from apartments to an assisted living home to be used for homeless veterans.

But residents said they were uncomfortable having the Mustard Seed House project go in their neighborhood, so property owner Jay Flowers withdrew the request.

Board members say they they want the focus to be on their mission, and not on one piece of property. They say they are continuing to search for a suitable property, at a location that will be mutually agreeable to neighbors. They hope to be up and running by January 1st.
