Comments on homelessness plan sought

Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero said she wants public input on a newly released draft plan to address homelessness in the city. You can find the draft right smack here.

Comments will be accepted for 45 days.

According to a release:
This new plan draws from priorities established through the Compassion Knoxville public input process in 2011, from the successful components of the previous homelessness plan, and from the priorities and requirements established by federal initiatives on homelessness. The Compassion Knoxville process gathered input from more than 500 individuals through 43 public meetings and online comments.

The plan focuses on preventing homelessness and helping those who have become homeless find stable, permanent housing, so that they can reconnect with and contribute back to the community. Its strategies emphasize collaboration and accountability for all partners in the effort, from homeless individuals to service agencies and local government.
