The Reverend Larry Rice is not giving up on his quest to set a tent city for the homeless. The New Life Evangelistic Center's latest village near Interstate 44 and Vandeventer was condemned by city leaders even before the first homeless person moved in.

New Life has sent a letter to the St. Louis Board of Alderman asking for clarification over the city's decision to condemn the two-acre lot where "Integrity Village" was being built. Rice's organization claims it will "go underground" in its next attempt to set up a encampment for the homeless.
