By Matthew Belenis & George Simmons,
A new respite homeless shelter is being proposed for construction in two different locations in Davis. The first proposed location is 1717 5th street which is currently a Davis Public Works office. The second proposed location is underneath the freeway bike overpass next to Mori Seiki. Both these locations are receiving Not In My Backyard pushback (NIMBY).
