REDDING, Calif. - The Shasta County Board of Supervisors voted to continue research into a proposed navigational center in Redding.

While the project is still in the early discussion stages, the facility is meant to bridge criminal and mental health treatment to reduce homeless crimes. 

The center aims at giving more beds to the homeless population so police can enforce local ordinances against sleeping on public lands. 

One of the big topics discussed in a meeting on Tuesday was whether there was enough money for such a large project. 

The Health and Human Services representative on the project does not think that there is enough money. 

"When you combine the two projects its quite a bit of money you know its a significant resource so I mean trying to be a little more realistic on what we think we can do with the resources we have," he said. 

He proposed a smaller-scale alternative. 

The supervisors voted to let Shasta County Health and Human Services continue its research.
