Evans Lane Emergency Housing Meeting

Dear Neighbors, We will be hosting a community meeting about building emergency housing for families on Evans Lane on Monday, May 18th, from 5:30 to 8:00pm. We will discuss how this site was selected, its timeline and intended residents, and services that will be provided. There will also be time for public comment. The meeting can be accessed using this link:  To provide public comment during the meeting (Webinar ID: 972 4083 7582) please call either of the following toll-free lines:



Find the meeting agenda here, which contains details about how to give public comment, and a FAQ about this project.  Background A few weeks ago, my Council colleagues and I passed an Emergency Order and Shelter Crisis Declaration Ordinance for the COVID-19 Emergency. At City Council, we took steps to expedite City procurement, permitting, and land use processes to construct emergency housing. Evans Lane is one of three sites selected for emergency housing. Because it is already owned by the City and is already slated for affordable housing, the site will house families temporarily and provide a path to permanent housing for the families that will be living on this site. The emergency housing would likely be in place for 3-5 years while the first phase of the permanent housing is being developed and constructed on another part of the site. When it is complete, the on-site residents can move into the permanent housing, and the second phase of permanent construction can begin. I want this project to be successful for all our District 6 residents, and I will do my very best to make that happen. Thank you for all your attention, time, and effort over the many years that the Evans Lane site has been discussed as a possible project. I hope that we can work together to ensure a successful Evans Lane project. Best,
