Barrio Logan Homeless Shelter Raises Questions

Audio

Tom Fudge : On Monday, the San Diego City Council adopted a plan to end chronic homelessness by building permanent housing for the hardcore homeless. But pending a solution to the problem, they also approved their annual stop-gap measure, namely the Winter Shelter Program. The city does this every year by declaring a homeless shelter crisis. This year, in fact, they decided to maintain a temporary shelter in Barrio Logan for an additional 40-some days.

This didn’t sit well with 8th-District Councilman Ben Hueso, or members of the Barrio Logan community. They say the homeless shelter has a serious impact on the community. What’s more, it will be located, this year right next to a hazardous waste cleanup site.
