Monday could be a long day for the Huntington Beach City Council.
The council will convene at 3:30 p.m. and the hot topic has been the plan to establish a homeless shelter – billed as a “navigation center” – in an industrial area of the city.
At the last meeting of the council, an earlier version of the plan for a site near Marina Park and Marina High School brought a storm of protest.
Mayor Erik Peterson pulled the item for the agenda, and what’s before the council next Monday is a study session on a proposal to establish a similar facility at 15311 Pipeline Lane, further away from the school and park. It would have 75 to 90 beds in the 11,200-square foot facility.
Two open houses were held on the proposal, on April 9 and 13. No final decision is expected to be made on Monday.
The study session – which is open to the public – will be followed at 5 p.m. by a closed session at 5 p.m., with the regular meeting slated to begin at 6 p.m.
Huntington Beach’s council meets in its chamber in the Civic Center at 2000 Main St. (at Yorktown Avenue).
