The Commission will hold a public meeting Thursday, March 29 from 2 to 6 p.m. to hear directly from citizens and social service providers regarding the support services being provided to Lancaster residents.
The meeting will be held in the Lancaster City Hall Council Chambers and is open to the public.
The purpose of the meeting is to hear public testimony and discuss services provided by the County of Los Angeles and other service providers to Lancaster residents.
“Residing in affordable housing shouldn’t mean reduced or limited accessibility to county services that are readily available to everyone else within LA County,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “We encourage people who are faced with challenges such as access to public healthcare or other essential county services to attend this meeting and voice their opinion.”
Support services such as healthcare, counseling, and legal aid are provided by the County of Los Angeles in the Antelope Valley.
“I am well aware of what it means to receive affordable housing vouchers, as well as the devastating effect not having access to critical services can have on a family,” said Council Member Sandra Johnson. “Thus, I encourage residents to come out and have their opinions heard.”
The meeting is part of the City’s development of the Federally-required Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing.
