Housing solutions for the chronically homeless are important and must be thoughtfully placed throughout San Diego to reach all those in need. However, city-ownership should not be the deciding factor in where low-barrier homeless shelters are placed.
PSH at the gateway to the community is NOT the highest and best use for such a precious Mission Hills asset within our commercial core.
- Council District 3, which includes Mission Hills, supports 72% of all PSH within San Diego while three Council Districts still have none.
- Should this project be developed, expedited permitting and approvals will be employed per the recent passage of Assembly Bill 2162.
- We care because the purpose of the Mission Hills BID is to improve the overall business climate of the commercial area.
- PSH is incongruent with enhancing the small business community surrounding this property.
Do You Have All The Facts?
- This proposal includes a plan to build 28 single occupancy units for the chronically homeless.
- PSH is a program which provides long-term housing and supportive services to chronically homeless people.
- Program participation in supportive services is voluntary and may include mental, psychiatric, and social assistance.
- Low-barrier housing means that a minimum number of expectations are placed on people who wish to live there; tenants may have a criminal history and are not expected to abstain from using alcohol or other drugs, or from carrying on with street activities while living on-site.
