McKINLEYVILLE – Mack Town’s advisory committee will get an update on a proposed social services hub when it meets Wednesday, Nov. 30 starting at 6 p.m. at the Azalea Conference Center, located at the rear of McKinleyville MIddle School on Central Avenue and Railroad Drive.
The McKinleyville Municipal Advisory Committee will hear a presentation on what’s being called The Center at McKinleyville. The building would provide office space for employees of the county’s Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies that currently provide services to about one-third of McKinleyville’s population.
The county Board of Supervisors has given the department approval to enter into lease negotiations with Cutten-based McKenny Inc. to construct the $2.1 million 13,400-square-foot building at 1615 Heartwood Dr. just west of Burger King.
The project has sparked s0me protests from McKinleyville residents who fear that it will attract more homeless people to town.
The committee will hear a presentation on the hub, but is not scheduled to take any action.
The committee will also hear a presentation on the Community Gratitude Gathering and Community Visioning Session held Nov. 19 the McKinleyville Teen & Community Center.
The committee will finish up the evening by discussing second-hand smoke policies, followed by reports from committee members.
