An estimated 700 to 800 people filled a town hall meeting on the planned homeless shelter in Glendale last night, as local elected officials and community members discussed how to fight its opening.
A line wrapped around the block with concerned community members piling into the standing-room only auditorium at P.S./I.S. 119 in Glendale to hear from local politicians and vocalize their qualms with the City’s proposed 200-men homeless shelter.
City Council Member Robert Holden organized the meeting and has been an outspoken critic of the proposed 78-16 Cooper Ave. shelter ever since the City put forward the idea.
