Community Input Wanted At Town Halls On Homelessness

May 18, 2021

Category: What's New

The City of Carlsbad would like the community’s input as it prepares to implement a broad package of initiatives designed to meet the City Council’s goal of reducing the number of people experiencing homelessness. Homelessness has emerged as a top community concern in recent years, prompting the City Council to make it one of its top goals.

The city will gather input through four virtual town hall style meetings and an online survey. Topics will include:

* Sharing information about the city’s existing programs and upcoming initiatives to reduce homelessness.
* Gathering input from the community that will help shape the direction and implementation of the city’s initiatives.
* Addressing misinformation about homelessness programs and answering the public’s questions.

Each meeting will be attended by a City Council member from one of the four City Council districts. Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting for their district. After signing up through the links below, participants will receive a link to the meeting via email.
