The proposed project consists of the construction of a new homeless shelter at a Recreation and Parks site that includes pallet shelters that are small, detached, pre-fabricated cabins assembled on site with beds for up to 175 individuals. The project will provide hygiene trailers 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 homeless families 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 96 pallet shelters; 83 (166 occupants) with double beds, nine with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant single beds; three pallets for staff, and one pallet for storage, both with no beds. The project site is approximately 57,240-square feet (sf) and is currently developed as a city park. The project includes beds in crisis and bridge housing for up to 175 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.
