Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Schroeder Hall Army Reserve Base (CA)
Land Deal Must Keep Homeless

By Harry Saltzgaver

January 21, 2009

Due to a legal ruling from the city attorney's office, an effort to seek 
elimination of a homeless service element for reuse of the Schroeder 
Hall Army Reserve base has been dropped.

Now Fifth District Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske wants to start the 
entire process over again.

Schipske had planned to introduce the motion to ask the federal 
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to waive a requirement 
to accommodate homeless service providers property in order to use the 
shuttered army reserve base for a new police substation. But a legal 
opinion by Assistant City Attorney Heather Mahood was issued last week 
saying the city would essentially have to start the application process 
over again to make that request.
