Saratoga Springs will not have a permanent Code Blue shelter by the time temperatures drop below freezing. Plans to build a cold-weather shelter for the homeless are tied up in court.

Backers of a new building say even if a judge rules in their favor, they won't have enough time to get it built and open for winter.

Neighbors have sued the city for giving the okay to build a Code Blue shelter next door to the existing homeless shelter.

The shelter's executive director is talking with facilities around town, hoping they can find a temporary location again this year.
