POSTPONED: MARCH 1 BRIDGE HOUSING COMMUNITIES MEETING
Dear Community Stakeholders,
Due to the large interest in attendance for the District 2 Bridge Housing Communities meeting, the City is rescheduling the March 1 meeting to seek an alternative location to ensure that the meeting space is large enough to accommodate more residents. Additionally, Mayor Liccardo wants to attend the District 2 meeting to hear residents thoughts and concerns first hand. An updated email will be sent out in advance when a new location has been identified and a date is selected.
My office is working with the Housing Department and the Mayor's Office to select a new meeting date for our Bridge Housing Community Meeting in District 2. We will let you know via email, my website, and social media as soon as the new meeting date, time, and location are finalized.
Bridge Housing Communities (BHC's) would be “Emergency Sleeping Cabins,” as outlined under the requirements of Assembly Bill 2176, which would provide transitional housing for some of the City's homeless residents. Working homeless adults or adults with a work history will be prioritized. Residents will be required to have or create a housing plan for when they exit the BHC's. The City has identified the top three BHC candidate sites, the third-ranked of which is in D2, in accordance with the criteria and prioritization methods approved by the City Council in December 2017. Next steps: The candidate sites will undergo California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) analysis as the City and my D2 office conduct community outreach.
My statement: BHC Update [Please note that the BHC Community Meeting in District 2 has since been postponed]
