345 Sylvan St - Old South residents supporting positive changes
The City of London plans to make 345 Sylvan Street a “core area stabilization space” for homeless drug users in London. The proposed plan for this property is to act as a temporary shelter "where police and other agencies can bring residents who are on the streets, potentially on drugs or other substances”, who “need a place to ride out a high”.
We, the undersigned, recognize and applaud the city’s exploring of options to try to make a difference, and support those battling addiction in having places to turn where they can be supported and cared for by trained professionals.
We recognize that at the corner of Baseline and Wellington lies a regional treatment hub for those battling mental health issues and addictions, and that having a facility like this within walking distance does make sense.
We also commend the city providing an opportunity for residents to give their input on these early stage plans, and will utilize the opportunity to speak in favour of such actions.
