A Gainesville ministry’s plans to build a campus housing women involved in sex trafficking were rejected Monday night by the Hall County Planning Commission. Straight Street Revolution Ministries’ proposal now goes to the Hall County Board of Commissioners for a Dec. 8 public hearing and final action. “I commend Mr. (Todd) Robson for his ministries and all the people who support it, but at this time, I do not feel that this is the correct location for this ministry,” Planning Commissioner Bo Brooks said.
