Homeless Meeting

 

The city of Alameda is holding a special public meeting to discuss the action plan aimed to mitigate the increased number of homeless encampments in the city. 

Homeless encampments in Alameda and across the entire Bay Area region have grown in recent months and the city is working to address this issue throughout the island, including at the future Jean Sweeney Open Space Park. The City is working collaboratively with Alameda Point Collaborative, Operation Dignity, and the Social Service Human Relations Board (SSHRB) to develop and implement a compassionate Action Plan, according to Amy Wooldridge, Alameda Recreation and Park Department’s director.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 6:30 p.m. at the Mastick Senior Center, 1155 Santa Clara Ave. Child care and refreshments will be provided.
