In September of 2016, the West Hollywood City Council approved a resolution initiated by Councilmembers Lauren Meister and John Heilman to form a council subcommittee focusing on homeless issues, affirming the city’s desire to work with county agencies and as well as concentrate on preventing West Hollywood residents from becoming homeless.

The community forum will engage community members in a discussion about homelessness in the City and about ongoing efforts to alleviate the issue and help those in need. There will be opportunities for community input regarding short- and long-term solutions for homelessness and its impacts on residents and businesses.

Attendees will include representatives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, staff members from the City of West Hollywood’s Public Safety Department and Code Compliance Division, the City’s Homelessness Initiative Project Manager, and a representative from County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s Office.

Community members are encouraged to attend; the community forum is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required.
