Residents Invited to Review and Comment on Community Plan Draft to Address Homelessness Collaborative plan available for comments until August 22
The City of Santa Clarita has been, and continues to be, committed to helping those experiencing homelessness in our community. Thanks to a planning grant from the County of Los Angeles, the City hired a research group to develop a comprehensive solution’s plan to address and combat homelessness. After nearly three months of research, meetings and interviews, a draft of the Community Plan to Address Homelessness has been completed.
The public has an opportunity to weigh in on the plan and be part of the solution. The draft is available for review and comment now through Wednesday, August 22. The plan is available at santa-clarita.com/homeless – for questions or comments please email: [email protected]. This plan outlines a community approach and highlights the need for collaboration to make a true and lasting impact on homelessness.
“This plan represents the culmination of months of work and discussions involving the key service providers in our community,” said Councilmember Cameron Smyth. “Reading through the draft of the plan, it is very evident that this is not something the City can take on alone. This plan requires buy in and support from dozens of non-profits, faith-based organizations, school districts and more. By coming together and committing to these action items, we will be able to make significant progress toward helping those experiencing homelessness in Santa Clarita.”
“I am thrilled to see the great strides our City, and community, have made toward helping our most vulnerable neighbors,” said Mayor Pro Tem Marsha McLean. “We recently purchased and transferred $1 million worth of land to Bridge to Home. This land is adjacent to the property where the temporary shelter currently is, and provides enough space for a new, permanent, year-round shelter with resources, services and the help and support our homeless so desperately need.”
