3 days ago Mayor McLean announced the Shelter Better Task Force names. This task force is charged with reviewing the Interfaith Sanctuary needs analysis and ultimately identifying the right location for a new emergency shelter. At the time of the press release there was not an individual specifically named to represent the Collister Neighborhood Association on the Shelter Better Task Force. This was simply because we had a change in leadership and needed to confirm expectations and time commitment required to serve on the task force. Since that time, Hillary Takahashi, the Collister Neighborhood Association President, has been confirmed as our representative on the Shelter Better Task Force. The neighborhood Interfaith Sanctuary workgroup will be an important resource for Hillary as she represents the neighborhood on this task force.

We will share more as we know more.
