For Immediate Release
Public Meeting Regarding Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness
www.TenYearPlan.org
December 4, 2008 - A public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 6:00 p.m. in the Small Assembly Room of the City County Building. The meeting will give neighborhood representatives and interested members of the public an opportunity to learn about and comment on critical aspects of the Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness.

Tim Klont from the Corporation for Supportive Housing will speak about what permanent supportive housing is, how effective it is, how it affects property values, the different models of development, how different communities site this type of housing, and other points of interest. Mr. Klont will answer questions afterwards.

According to Jon Lawler, the Ten-Year Plan (TYP) Director, one major goal of this meeting, and the joint City Council/County Commission workshop on the following day, is to start a process for defining the siting criteria by which permanent supportive housing would be located in various parts of the city and county to meet TYP objectives.

The other goal is to help define the guidelines by which developers of this housing will engage neighborhoods where such housing may be located.

The Ten-Year Plan (TYP) is a focus of both Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale. Details about the TYP can be found at www.tenyearplan.org.
