Kitchen offers resolution to establish new homeless shelter

Monday, January 28, 2019 by Jack Craver

Council Member Ann Kitchen is offering a resolution for Council’s Jan. 31 agenda that will instruct the city manager to prepare a report by the end of May describing “the best options for piloting immediate shelter and support services for those experiencing homelessness with the intent of providing a pathway to permanent housing.” The resolution directs the city manager to identify opportunities to purchase or lease property that can be used to provide immediate shelter for those without. The resolution specifies that the new shelter will not be “directly adjacent to existing residential neighborhoods” unless the “neighborhood approved of the use,” and that the structure and services should be ready by September.
