City of Greeley officials are wanting to hear additional feedback after hosting community conversations on homelessness and housing alternatives in February and April.

Officials invite the community to the third and final Community Conversation: “What We Do To Move Forward, More Conversations on Homelessness and Housing Solutions in Greeley.” These meetings are similar to the February and April format, with an:

  • in-person meeting scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18 at the Greeley Recreation Center, 651 19th Avenue, Room 101ABC,
  • virtual meeting scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m., Thursday, May 19.

Participants should RSVP to attend either or both conversations at greeley-forward.rsvpify.com. A Zoom link for the May 19 conversation will be sent after receiving the RSVP.

Give Your Final Feedback
This round of conversations will focus on:

  • final recommendations for homeless services,
  • local coordination,
  • and housing options in Greeley.

Participants will also discuss the costs and financial feasibility of those recommendations, funding options, and prioritize next steps. View the agenda at greeleygov.com/homelessandhousingservices. Staff will present final recommendations at the June 14 City Council work session. Council meeting information can be found by visiting the City’s meeting portal online.

“We have been so impressed with the honest and open conversations that have happened over the past several months by our residents,” said Greeley City Manager Raymond Lee. “We look forward to sharing recommendations based on that community feedback as well as financial feasibility and funding options for possible next steps. These recommendations will drive decision making and direct implementation strategies as Council considers the path forward.”
