Homelessness Bus Tour 08/01/2016

On Monday, August 1, Members of City Council, the Human Relations Commission, and invited guests will participate in a bus tour of city sites of interest in addressing homelessness from 5:00 - 8:30 p.m. At this time we anticipate that all seats on the tour bus will be filled with invited guests.

The Tour Packet pdf is now available. Interested members of the public can learn more about Transitional Housing Programs and do a self-guided tour at another time.

Human Services is not organizing a car caravan as part of the bus tour, and we do not encourage people to come to the West Senior Center on August 1 to follow the bus due to parking and traffic limitations.
