Pomona has been Proactive in Providing Homeless Services – That Needs to be Recognized
Pomona has been a leader in the region in caring for our homeless population. That’s why I’ve asked staff to revise our General Plan Housing Element to explicitly recognize the proactive work we have done in constructing an emergency homeless service center. I also asked that we reduce the land zoned by right for the construction of additional shelters, to better reflect the needs of Pomona’s homeless population. We cannot shoulder the challenge of addressing the region’s homeless situation by ourselves. Other communities need to shoulder their fair share. Watch the video to learn more about my motion, which was approved unanimously by the City Council on 10/15/18.
