Navigation Center deal OK’d

THE NAVIGATION CENTER in Huntington Beach (City of HB).

Following Garden Grove’s recent approval, Westminster City Council made a quick 5-0 vote at the Tuesday city council meeting, passing a memorandum of understanding regarding the Central Cities Navigation Center.

An initial memorandum of understanding was sent this June to Garden Grove, Fountain Valley, and Westminster, all three cities that are involved in building the Navigation Center, intended to provide temporary housing and services to the unsheltered. This memorandum outlined and defined the location, cost, and size of the Navigation Center.

The memorandum notes that the cities must hire an experienced service provider, who they are now on the lookout for. The experienced service provider will help the cities to operate the Navigation Center in a fair and legal fashion.

Now that Westminster has approved the memorandum, the last city that is needed to is Fountain Valley, who will have its vote on Nov. 1. Their approval, if granted, will open the door to the next steps in the building of the Navigation Center.
