There will be a Town Hall Meeting on Monday August 29th, 2016 at 6:00pm in the Restoration Plaza (1360 Fulton Street Brooklyn, NY 11216) in the muti-purpose room. The meetng will focus on the proposed homeless shelter at 1217 Bedford Avenue.Under the proposal, the non-profit organization Breaking Ground would run the homeless transitional residence and drop-in center at 1217 Bedford Avenue and Halsey Street. If approved, the site will hold 30 beds for transitional residence and a drop-in center capacity for 75 homeless adults. Drop-in centers provide an al­ternative to traditional shelters for street homeless individuals, and offer temporary respite where individuals can shower, eat a meal, see a doctor and rest.
