REDDING, Calif.- Members of the Redding City Council voted on Tuesday to send a letter to Gov. Newsom. The letter asks the governor to declare a state of emergency to address the homelessness crisis in Redding.
In the letter written by Mayor Julie Winter, she urges the governor to take immediate action and support a plan to resolve the crisis that the city of Redding is facing.

She also expresses her frustration with the amount of services that are available to the homeless here in Redding, but aren't being used, suggesting possible solutions to the crisis.

With nearly three-thousand homeless individuals living in Redding, the city says it's requesting solutions such as more funding for temporary shelter, having readily available treatment for those who may be addicted, the ability to enforce illegal camping ordinaces, and other options.
