From CBS 13 Sacramento:
Sacramento city and county leaders may be one step closer to navigating the homelessness crisis. An affordable housing plan meant to get people off the streets will create 2,000 units during a five-year plan.
On Tuesday, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors and Sacramento City Council approved a joint agreement. The city and county will need to finalize an affordable housing plan within 180 days of the agreement going into effect.
While it may appear to be the beginning, the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) said the proposal is not in the infancy stages.
"We are moving forward with all of our energy and time and resources," said La Shelle Dozier, executive director of SHRA.
Dozier said there are units already in the pipeline.
