King County Holding Zoom Meeting Answering Public Questions About The Redmond Silver Cloud Inn


King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci and King County Department of Community and Human Services Director Leo Flor are hosting a public zoom meeting tonight to answer the public's questions about the Silver Cloud Inn, Redmond.

The residents of the area near Goodwill on the edge of Redmond near the Bellevue border have organized in an effort to gain transparency and answers to how the hotel for the homeless will be run.

They have learned that residents in the hotel will be allowed to continue their drug and alcohol abuse while residing in the hotel.  Concerns are crime and children's exposure to crime and drug use.

Safe Eastside is one community group holding regular sign waving events and meet online to discuss what it means to have a hotel for the homeless in their immediate community and what the costs will be to the families raising their children there.  They cite the number of schools that children are attending in the vicinity and have expressed fears for the safety of their families and their property.

They have expressed the vagueness and lack of answers to their questions focusing specifically on drugs being used in the hotel and feel this has been kept vague with no real communication from the mayor and city council.

A special King County District 6 Health Through Housing Town Hall will be held tonight via Zoom.
