Homeless Storage Neighborhood Advisory Committee
This Committee is comprised of community members in San Diego - including Residents, Business Owners, Home & Property Owners, Ministers, School Parents, School Principals, Volunteers and Community Advocates – who will assist in keeping our Communities Safe
MISSION: Gathering Party to ensure effective communication between the community
and the storage connect facility (116 S 20th St SD 92113)
Our communities need to be respected and given the same guidelines as other future storage sites have been given. Per the Housing Authority any new storage location cannot be by schools or homes. What the HOUSING AUTHORITY SAYS (except for Monica Montgomery & Vivian Moreno) to our communities is that it is legal to discriminate
Our district has been housing a storage that does not meet the parameters established for storage sites
We need to close the storage on 20th and Commercial and have D8
follow the safety guidelines all other Districts in San Diego will have
UPDATE on approval of HAR16-004 (Storage Connect year extension) done on 3/12/19 by CITY COUNCIL
The item went through only opposing Housing Authority where council representaives for D4 & D8.
Council president @ Georgette Gomez amended the motion: She put a cap on 500 bins on the current site and made the point that the mayors office had to set forth the next storage outreach plan for the site with Community involvement for D9 by June 2019 (3 months) and these UPDATE meetings must have minutes for the councils to be aware of the residents comments.
"We continue to work with the city and it's representatives on this issue so that OTHER council members, as promised, identify possible space in other communities in San Diego for storage locations" HSNAC Member Pita Verdin
HOMELESS STORAGE CENTER on 20th & Commercial in Logan Heights
"To have this environment was a critical missing link and my pledge was that this was going to be a benefit to the neighborhood and help clean up things around it," Faulconer said.

Very simple. It's called equal distribution.
The problem of homelessness will not be solved until the state opens mental facilities. The homeless need on site, long-term treatment for their addictions Nothing else is going to work.
