SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City-area residents who live near sites of potential homeless shelters are speaking out against the locations.
The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/2m10M3J ) that the county has identified five sites around the city as possibilities homeless resource centers in the county. The plan is to build two 200-bed centers and a third shelter with up to 300 beds.
The sites range in price from $1 million to $3.5 million.
About 400 residents in South Salt Lake and West Valley City attended the county's first public forum to gather input on the sites. Most residents opposed having the larger shelter in their community.
Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams says he is open to input about the facilities.
