The Juneau Housing First Collaborative announced this week that it has been awarded more than $2.5 million in grants and loans for a project that will add a new wing to a subsidized housing complex in Lemon Creek.
Juneauites are weighing in on the future of downtown this month through a series of walking tours. The second tour was supposed to cover vehicles, parking and pedestrians, but the conversation shifted to homelessness.
This is the second winter the City and Borough of Juneau will operate the shelter. The facility in the old state public safety building on Whittier Street sleeps up to 28 people and operates from 11 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. through April 15.
