CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council will consider a low-barrier shelter at Tuesday night's meeting.

Council members say that currently, shelters offer fewer than 300 beds on any night. 

Due to the rise in need, and given the fact that the city declared a shelter crisis in October, councilmembers are considering the new shelter as a way to meet those needs. 

The newly proposed 24-hour low-barrier shelter will offer up to 200 additional beds each night. 

The council is set to vote on this at Tuesday night's meeting at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers.
