The Lynwood City Council held a special meeting Tuesday to review plans to address homelessness, create more affordable housing in the city, improve internet service for residents and invest some $80 million in infrastructure spending on improving facilities, streets, and parks in Lynwood.
“The City Council is committed to accelerating the improvement in the quality of life in Lynwood,” said City Manager Ernie Hernandez. “The Council meeting let us share with the Council members how we plan to address these critical issues in our city.”
The Council noted that Tuesdays’ adoption of the homeless plan, which we’ll cover in more detail next week, will allow the city to apply for grants and funding to address the homeless issue.
“Transparency is very important to all of us on the Council. We will make sure that we keep our residents well informed of the progress we make on all these issues,” said Mayor Jorge Casanova.
The Homeless Plan and the progress on the infrastructure spending and developments on the other issues (more affordable housing, improved accessible internet service) will be put on the city’s website and promoted on social media so that residents can best understand the progress that the city is making.
