The Municipality of Anchorage’s Planning and Zoning Commission is meeting July 19,6:30 p.m. in Assembly Chambers at the Loussac Library to discuss the Karluk Manor project. Karluk Manor (currently the Red Roof Inn) is intended to provide a housing alternative for chronically homeless individuals living on the streets or camps around the city. 24 deaths among this group have occurred since May 2009.
This model has been successfully deployed in Seattle with attendant significant reductions in medical and criminal justice system expenses, while providing a humane response to homelessness and alcohol addiction.
People of faith are urged to attend this meeting to show support for doing the right thing for our neighbors. You’ve heard the sermons. Now vote with your feet and presence at this meeting.
