Social Issues Meeting

Members of the downtown Vernon business community, service providers, and the Social Planning Council are meeting Wednesday morning to discuss the social issues facing the city.

This meeting is focused on the impacts of homelessness within the Business Improvement Area downtown. 

The City says the purpose is to review issues and concerns within the BIA, discuss new and upcoming programs and initiatives and brainstorm potential actions for moving forward.

Urban Matters says there will be about 80 people at the meeting and  their report to City Council will be complete by the end of the month.
