Code-violation notice to Zacchaeus House

This Feb. 13, 2008, notice from the city of Asheville’s Planning and Zoning Department informs the owners of a house on South French Broad Avenue that tenants of the home are violating a city code. “The nature of the violation is operating a house of worship,” it states.

The Rev. Amy Cantrell and the Rev. Chrystal Cook had been operating the Zacchaeus House at the location, a “house church” aimed at helping anyone who needs food, clothing or a place to sleep.
