Park district cool to warming center in Seaside – February 10, 2021
The future of a warming center in Seaside is in question after Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District board members asked to table the proposal for now.
“This just came in our radar last week,” board member Celeste Bodner said. “There’s a whole coalition of people working on homeless issues for decades. We should be playing a support role, not a main role. I think it’s mission creep and has the potential of alienating folks.”
The warming center had been prepared to open on Saturday in the Sunset Recreation Center, formerly Broadway Middle School, which the park district purchased in January.
