Tomorrow (Monday) night, Downtown Emergency Service Center reps come to Delridge to answer questions about DESC’s proposal for a 75-apartment project housing homeless people dealing with mental illness/substance abuse challenges. (The site, at right, is in the 5400 block of Delridge – note the real-estate shingles; DESC says it’s “under contract.”) The day after North Delridge Neighborhood Council chair Karrie Kohlhaas brought up the proposal at the last NDNC meeting, we spoke with DESC’s executive director for a detailed followup (read it here if you missed it).
DESC has long since expanded outside the “downtown” in its name and runs projects around the city with about 1,000 “supportive-housing” units – 1811 Eastlake, Canaday House, Evans House, Kerner-Scott House, Lyon Building, Rainier House, The Morrison, and The Union Hotel, with Aurora Supportive Housing in its pipeline ahead of the proposed Delridge project. Tomorrow night’s meeting is at Delridge Library (less than a block southwest of the project site) at Delridge/Brandon, 6-7:30 pm (here’s the DESC-circulated letter/flyer).
Sorry, comment time is over.
