REDDING, California - Leaders heading up projects to assist domestic abuse victims and veterans will come before the Redding City Council on Tuesday seeking financial support.
The council will consider waiving $28,700 in fees and a use permit in connection to former state Sen. Maurice Johannessen’s proposal to build a medical facility and senior apartment complex for veterans across from the Redding Veterans Home on Knighton Road. Johannessen has bought 16 acres for the project.
One SAFE Place officials are asking for $300,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds to help with rehabilitation costs at its $5 million Sierra Center shelter. The block grant funding will cover pre-development tasks such as engineering and architectural services, environmental studies and professional and permit fees.
