San Diego City Council approves funding for homeless navigation center
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego City Council yesterday approved funding for a navigation intake center for the homeless over the objections of four council members who said the center provides no shelter beds and guarantees no housing.
The mayor agrees we need more housing but for now he’s focused on the short term needs of the homeless who are without shelter.
In the meantime, the council has taken the lead on providing low cost housing by recently passed a resolution requesting each council district identify sites for 140 housing units that would get the city to 1260 units a number that would match the number of chronically homeless in the city.
Additionally, the council hopes to expand the reach by including school districts land and property owned by the state.
