The City of Antioch is preparing to move forward with the Emergency Shelter Zoning Amendment on multiple properties within the city. The hearing is set for June 3, 2020.
According to the notice, the city is seeking to modify its Zoning Ordinance as “emergency shelter” to also include recreation vehicle parks and alternative shelters. It would also include alternative development and operational standards for emergency shelters as well as the zoning designation.
The full agenda will be released on Friday (May 29) with more background. By approving zoning amendment, it will allow the City of Antioch to place its 5 homeless trailers it received from the state on a city owned property. There is also discussion that additional locations could be added to the list before it goes to city council — including Lone Tree Way near the community center as well as on Deer Valley across from Safeway.
Currently, the city is proposing the changes to the following areas which notices have only gone out to residents within 300 feet of the current properties:
- Fitzuren Road: APN 067-342-013, 067-342-002, and 067-342-001.
- 301 W 10th Street: APN 067-080-038
- 615 A Street: APN 066-162-038, 007
- Fulton Shipyard Road: APN 065-020-002
The Planning Commission of the City of Antioch will hold a public hearing to review this proposal at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.
