Bridge Housing Town Hall October 17
Posted on 10/17/18
We are pleased to invite you to a special community town hall discussion about proposed bridge housing at the former Metro bus yard
on Main Street. The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 17 at Westminster Elementary School.
We will both provide an overview of the proposal and answer your questions. Acclaimed reporter Alex Cohen, former local news anchor for NPR’s Morning Edition on KPCC and the new Morning Anchor and Host of “Inside the Issues with Alex Cohen” at Spectrum Networks, will moderate the discussion and the question-and-answer session.

Bridge housing is a vital part of the City's comprehensive homelessness strategy - a way to provide interim housing and services for homeless Angelenos already living in our neighborhoods, and to ensure our streets and sidewalks are navigable and safe. Bridge housing will provide an alternative to sidewalk encampments in Venice — moving people out of homelessness more safely and quickly while improving the quality of life for everyone. At this community meeting, we will detail the proposal and explain how it will work and how it will benefit the community. The City will release a proposed design for the project prior to the meeting.
From the start, we have worked to engage you and your neighbors at every step in this process — from asking for initial suggestions about where bridge housing could be located, to getting input at a community open house, through online surveys, or at other community meetings and events. Your input has shaped the design and operations plan, and we are hosting this town hall to answer your questions and get additional feedback.
We are expecting a large crowd at the event. Please click here to RSVP today and reserve a seat.
Thank you very much. We hope to see you on October 17!
