Good Neighbor Agreement Advisory Committee

In January 2021, Congregations for the Homeless applied for a conditional use permit to build a 100-bed, permanent men's shelter in Eastgate, on a 10-acre parcel to be acquired from the county at 13620 SE Eastgate Way.

Per the city's land-use code, a Good Neighbor Agreement Advisory Committee has been formed to foster communication between the community and CFH, with the goal of forming a good neighbor agreement. Read the final Good Neighbor Agreement.
