An exclusive negotiating agreement to develop a permanent “Healing Center” for the unsheltered goes before the Huntington Beach City Council when it meets on Tuesday.
The ENA would be with Jamboree Housing Corporation for a 1.6-acre site at 17642 Beach Blvd., where the temporary Navigation Center for the homeless is now located.
What’s proposed is a mixed-use development consisting of a permanent homeless shelter, a sobering shelter, support services (physical and behavioral health care, housing navigation and employment) and low-income housing at various income levels.
Partnering with Jamboree would be Mercy House, which operates homeless shelters, and Be Well, a behavioral health treatment and services organization.
Also on the agenda is a report from the Charter Revision committee on its proposed recommendations. At issue has been the idea of changing the posts of city attorney, city clerk and city treasurer from elected to appointed positions.
The council will meet in its chambers at 2000 Main St. with a study session at 4 p.m., a closed session at 5 p.m. and the regular meeting at 6 p.m.
