Dear Council Members: I will be attending the city council meeting tonight, Tuesday, February 18, 2020, with my son who is a high school senior. I grew up in Chico and have lived here since 1975. Both of my children were born here and I am a graduate of California State University, Chico. Both my mother and father are also alumni of CSU, Chico. I am a home owner, a mother and a teacher by profession. I am concerned about the current climate in Chico. I am in favor of discontinuing the needle distribution program, of maintaining and enforcing the current sit and lie ordinance and opposed to any type of low barrier housing or shelter in our community. Additionally I am opposed to constructing sub-standard housing for seniors, currently called Simplicity Village in south Chico. I own a home off of Notre Dame Ave and it is already negatively impacted by the transients that utilize the Torres Shelter. Thank you, Shawneen Felix (530)354-5509 shawneenbrooke@gmail.com

This is a really good point. I hope Chico will consider this. Please also take note about the hard money lenders for real estate

Some of the cities that have successful tiny home villages (like the Simplicity Village Business Plan and Village Manual are modeled after) are: Austin TX, Dallas TX, Oakland, San Jose, Sonoma, Medford, Eugene (3), Marysville, Portland (2), Denver, Madison WN, Ithica NY, Reno, Olympia WA, Fresno, Ventura, Detroit, Washington DC, New York, Seattle (7), Tallahassee FL, and Los Angeles If you look at the tiny homes CHAT has built, they are built with the same materials and criteria as most of the single family residential homes in Chico, with regular siding, regular insulation in the floor, walls and ceiling. If you talk to our service providers, you will hear heart breaking stories of our lack of shelter capacity and seniors sleeping outside.
