LOWVILLE — Stowe Street residents spoke out during the county board meeting Tuesday evening against Lewis County leadership’s plan to create a temporary and assistive housing facility on a county-owned Outer Stowe Street property next to the Human Services Building.

“My husband and I have been residents of Stowe Street for 23 years. I am here to share serious concerns I have with the proposed multi-million dollar building at the top of our street, which will be used to house homeless people,” said Laurie A. Rowsam of 5425 Stowe St., with her husband, Gene H. Rowsam, sitting nearby.
