The proposed project consists of the construction of a new homeless shelter at a Recreation and Parks owned parcel that includes pallet shelters that are small, detached, pre-fabricated cabins assembled on site with beds for up to 66 individuals, a hygiene trailer with restrooms, showers, lavatories, drinking fountains; and designated seating areas for food services for people experiencing homelessness. The nature of this project is to serve the local homeless community within the vicinity of the project. The purpose of the project is to provide emergency shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness to help bridge their transition from living on the streets to finding services and, ultimately, living in transitional and/or permanent housing. The project includes approximately 34 pallet shelters; 32 with double beds (64 occupants) and two with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant single beds. There are also two pallet shelters for staff and one pallet shelter for storage, both with no beds. The project site is approximately 21,706-square feet (sf) and is currently developed as a City park. The project includes beds in crisis and bridge housing for up to 66 people experiencing homelessness. Project beneficiaries include the homeless community, the public and local businesses. A third-party service provider will operate the project for the City and it is anticipated that a lease or similar operating and/or funding agreement may be executed.
