Information meeting in Ladysmith on proposed shelter change
The Ladysmith Resource Centre Association wants to know how residents feel about a change to the operations of the extreme weather shelter.
That’s after BC Housing applied to the Town of Ladysmith to make the shift from an extreme weather shelter to a cold weather shelter.
The Associations’ Marsh Stevens said it’s a better way to service those people who use the shelter from November 1st to the end of March.
He said the service would be more predictable with the shelter open every night but the other bonus is staff members could have regular shifts rather than being on call.
Members of the public are invited to attend a neighbourhood information meeting a week from this Wednesday from 3 to 5 in the basement of the building at 631 First Avenue.
