Burbank’s Winter Shelter

Tonight, among other topics, the Burbank City Council will discuss the 2008-2009 Homeless Winter Shelter Program.
Last year the city of Burbank agreed to host the shelter at its Armory because the city of Glendale, who had previously hosted the shelter, was renovating their Armory. This year, the city of Glendale has revealed that they are not interested in reopening their Armory for use by the Winter Shelter Program placing the load again on Burbank.
Living really close to the armory, I received a letter from the city notifying me of tonight’s meeting. And, last night, while working on my car, I was approached by a neighbor who was passing out material in opposition to the proposed shelter.
Judging from the literature I received, I think there is some misinformation about this shelter floating around. I encourage you, if you’re concerned, to read the Staff Report and its supporting documents. If that doesn’t satisfy you, attend tonight’s meeting at 6 PM at Burbank City Hall.
