The City of Fremont has opened a new topic on its online forum, Fremont Open City Hall, regarding the proposed temporary Housing Navigation Center. The Fremont housing navigation center will provide a clean, safe, calm and flexible environment that allows homeless persons to rebuild their lives and intensely focus on finding stable permanent housing. The center is modeled after the City of Berkeley's successful Housing Navigation (STAIR) Center.
The Fremont City Council is considering two potential locations for a temporary Housing Navigation Center:
- Parking Lot at Fremont City Hall (rear area)
- Decoto Surplus Property (unleased property next to Regan Nursery)
In addition to meeting minimum site requirements in size, these locations are within one-half mile of food and bus services, utility connection points are available, they are located outside of a fault trace zone, and not subject to the hazard of surface fault ruptures.
The forum will accept feedback until September 2, 2019. Feedback received through the forum will be shared with the City Council as part of the community outreach efforts at a City Council Meeting in September (meeting date to be determined). For more information and to take the survey, please visit Open City Hall.
