Planning for New Shelter Services

The Portland City Council’s Health & Human Services and Public Safety Committee will meet next on Tuesday, November 27 at 5:30 PM in the Council Chambers. The meeting will include a Committee discussion on the preferred model concept for how the City provides homeless services and emergency shelter.

City staff will take the Committee’s guidance on the preferred model to move forward and prepare additional information for the discussion surrounding a location or locations.

“At our November 13th HHS & PS meeting, we were fortunate to have the full council in attendance, which gave the Committee the opportunity to get a clear understanding of the model the Council is inclined to support,” said District 1 Councilor Belinda Ray, Chair of the HHS & PS Committee. “With this information in mind, combined with the additional information we expect to receive on the 27th, the Committee is poised to give staff direction on which model to pursue. This will allow us to move forward to the next step in our process regarding site selection.”

The full agenda and backup material for this meeting will be posted to the City’s Agenda Center by the end of the day Wednesday, November 21.
