DAA and friends talk homelessness
Wednesday, July 17, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano
Next week, the Downtown Austin Alliance will be hosting a forum to discuss recent changes to city homelessness ordinances. Dubbed the Downtown Safety Forum, panelists will discuss changes to the camping and sit/lie ordinances that went into effect on July 1 and hear from “city officials about homelessness planning, including recommendations for shelters in each council district that are due in August,” according to a press release about the event. Panelists, including Austin Police Department Chief Brian Manley, Interim Homeless Strategy Officer Veronica Briseño and DAA Vice President of Investor Relations Bill Brice, will discuss these issues and answer questions from the audience on July 23 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Austin’s Central Presbyterian Church, 200 E. Eighth St. Though the event is free and open to the public, guests must RSVP online to attend.
