ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 1, 2017) — Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait is set to unveil expanded and innovative ways of addressing homelessness, treating drug abuse and connecting residents to their city at his seventh State of the City address on Tuesday, Feb. 7.
Tait is set to outline ways the city is building on Coming Home Anaheim, a comprehensive approach to addressing homelessness that the mayor first outlined in 2014's State of the City address. New efforts include bringing innovative, environmental-friendly types of housing to Anaheim that can be built quickly and provide long-term affordable homes.
The mayor also is expected to announce an advanced level of medical treatment for those who voluntarily seek help for drug abuse as an expansion of Drug Free Anaheim, a program unveiled at 2016's State of the City.
At the same time, Tait is expected to introduce new ways for residents and employees to interact with the city, including an easy-to-use tool that provides insight into the city's budget.
There's a lot more in store for 2017 State of the City. You’re invited to join us for this always inspiring, exciting event.
Proceeds from this year’s event go to ACT Anaheim and its support of Anaheim youth and families.
