One thing is for certain, not one of these shelters or homes will be built anywhere near any council member, ever. Can anyone explain why, if this is mandated by the state, council would need to even bother voting? It would appear that if we must vote on the issue, there is an option other than "yes sir".
Moffett would be a perfect fit for this to happen there. Lots of land available.
"Transitional Homes" (i.e. halfway houses) are already located in redsidential neighborhoods in Mtn View. As city staff so gleefully anounced to our neighborhood group: "it isn't any different from any other boarding house". No special requirements as long as it was 6 bedrooms or fewer. Maybe the new zoning does away with tha size limit.
Maybe we can put these out in Googleville. Is that part of the city's general industrial districts? The mobile homes out there already feel like "transitional" and "supportive" residential areas.
Does Mobile = Transitional?
