Ukiah Planning Commission Approves Plan for Homeless Shelter

Following a public hearing last week, the The Ukiah Planning Commission approved plans for a permit to operate homeless shelter on South State Street. Redwood Community Services has proposed to rennovate the facility to be used as a year-round daytime shelter, and as a permanent winter homeless shelter. The daytime shelter would offer services during business hours 7 days a week. The emergency winter shelter would provide room for up to 60 people a night, and operate seven days a week between 6 p.m. and 9 a.m.
