In what promises to be a lengthy meeting Tuesday, Stanislaus County supervisors will consider new developments for the Focus on Prevention initiative and hold four public hearings.
County leaders could approve a multiyear strategy for financing Focus on Prevention, a 10-year effort to reduce homelessness, support families and youth, and break cycles of crime.
The board could approve an access center, or service hub, for the homeless at 825 12th St. in Modesto, next to the downtown jail. The county has plans for operating and staffing the center.
County leaders will leave the chambers to attend the 10 a.m. memorial service for sheriff’s Deputy Jason Garner, who was killed in a patrol car crash May 13. Community Service Officer Raschel Johnson, who also died in the crash, will be honored at a service Wednesday.
The board will reconvene at noon for a series of public hearings. Those hearings are scheduled in the following order:
▪ A change in methodology for assessments in County Service Area 8 — Honey Bee Estates in Empire.
▪ Adopting the environmental impact report for the Seventh Street Bridge project and choosing a standard bridge option for replacing the historic span over the Tuolumne River.
▪ Rezone for expansion of Bronco Wine Co. on East Keyes Road and Bystrum Road, south of Ceres.
▪ A proposed amphitheater for holding outdoor concerts at The Fruit Yard, at Highway 132 and Geer Road, east of Modesto.
The Board of Supervisors meets in the basement chambers of Tenth Street Place, at 1010 10th St., in Modesto.
