Volunteers wanted in Yakima to help plan homeless facility
YAKIMA, Wash. – The Yakima City Council is looking for volunteers interested in serving on an ad-hoc committee that they want to form to review design elements related to a potential homeless facility located within the City of Yakima.
City Council approved forming the committee which will be made up of seven members – one City Council member, one Yakima County Commission member or a commission-appointed representative, one representative from the Yakima Area Arboretum, an expert on homeless programs, an expert on housing programs, and two community members.
The committee will look at site considerations, services to be provided at a facility, and funding. The ad-hoc committee will ultimately make a report and recommendations to the City Council and present it to them later this spring.
Anyone interested in applying for the ad-hoc committee can download an application from the City of Yakima website or pick up an application at the City Clerk’s office at Yakima City Hall
Applications need to be mailed or turned in in person to the City Clerk’s office at Yakima City Hall by Monday, February 11 th at 5:00 pm.
