RED BLUFF, Calif. - The vacant Tehama County Courthouse is being considered as one of the possible locations for a homeless shelter.
Some local business owners told Action News Now they are not in favor of this proposal.
"I would hate to see [this area] destroyed when there are many other better alternatives." said local business owner Kelli Graves.
The county will be holding a public forum on Nov. 21 with a panel to discuss the new proposal; to set up a possible homeless shelter at the Red Bluff stationed courthouse.
Graves owns a spa right around the corner of the courthouse and she says she might just have to leave if the county decides to build the shelter.
"If I was not able to walk a block-and-a-half to my car when I leave here at 8 o'clock at night in the winter, if I felt unsafe, yes, absolutely, I would leave Main Street," said Graves.
Chief Administrator Bill Goodwin said there are two locations in the running, both having their pros and cons.
The forum starts at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 21 at the Red Bluff Community Center and it will be open to the public.
