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.

Strong wind continues to blow through the valley this afternoon, and will last through the evening. Thursday will still be a fairly breezy day, but the wind won't be as strong and our temperatures will be warmer. More wind is coming Friday and Saturday.
