Valor Apartments - Early Design Guidance

Below is a flyer regarding a project that is going in on 33rd. It is a 21 unit apartment called Valor Apartments that intends to provide free housing for homeless vets with dual diagnosis ( addiction and mental illness ). The first floor retail will be occupied by CPC and will provide mental health services to the homeless. The property is being sold to Community Psychiatric Clinic by the Mennonites.

Part of the function of the Comprehensive Plan is for it to be used for evaluating these types of projects to see if it fits the community's desires and needs. You are free to attend these meetings to speak out for or against it, and the Comp Plan can be used to support your arguments.....

This was not received by DPC until after the 27th. The communication channels between the city and this area could use some improvements.
