Positives about the City Hall site.
It is close to Medical Care ( Washington Hospital), Police Care and Supervision, shopping, walking distance to the Hub and transportation is available. The Senior Center is walking distance and the park is there for recreation and exercise. The services for extra case management could be utilized from City Hall.


Concerns about the City Hall site.
None. This is where most of the homeless already linger near the Lake.


Positives about the Decoto site.
It's away from most services and it is close to a Mac Donald's.


Concerns about the Decoto site.
It is away from all services, i.e. Food, Police, Health and Recreation if there are health or police issues it would take a while to get there with the traffic on Fremont Blvd and Paseo Padre. It is close to the 880 Freeway and Decoto, both main traffic arteries great for Drug deals to happen like Motel 6 on Fremont Blvd and 880 Freeway.


Which site would you prefer the temporary Housing Navigation Center to be built at? (Select one)
City Hall Rear Parking Lot


Do you have any additional feedback you would like to share?
If you are going to build a center, why not use the OLD Senior Center and Build a NEW Senior Center that was promised 30 Years ago.
For a city of 250K to only have one Senior Center is unheard of. Poor planning and promises not kept.
Who is going to Manage this facility anyway???

Positives about the City Hall site.
Close to everything they need including the senior center where they have grocery rescue and the food bank come in.


Concerns about the City Hall site.
None


Positives about the Decoto site.
It is empty dirt.


Concerns about the Decoto site.
Too far from medical care, too far from other needed services. Based on my experiences with FPD response, if it’s not a medical emergency they could wait for several hours for a response. The area around this site is already having an uptick in crime. I would like to know just what Counsel will say when the HNC is told to file a report on line and they will get to them. This is already happening to residents in the area.

City Hall Rear Parking Lot


Do you have any additional feedback you would like to share?
I can’t volunteer due to my own disabilities. Absolutely not going to pay into a flex fund. Keep adding on more fees to property tax and you will have more homeless. I am barely hanging on now. Also, if anything negative happens to me or my property because of this, I will sue the city, city council members separately and the state for forcing this on communities. I am not against helping the homeless, I just don’t think this is the right way. Especially when so much goes into salaries.

Last but not least, the Decoto property is in a liquefaction due to earthquake zone. Is the city that willing to sacrifice human life?
