Judge Rules in Favor of New Navigation Center
Judge Rules in Favor of New Navigation Center


With the hotly contested Embarcadero Navigation Center having just opened its doors, and the former Center on Mission having shuttered, there are now seven operating Navigation Centers in the city, concentrated in Supervisorial Districts 6, 9 and 10, the three districts within which roughly 75 percent of the city’s homeless population is estimated to reside.

With that in mind, Supervisors Matt Haney (District 6), Hillary Ronen (District 9) and Shamann Walton (District 10), along with Supervisor Dean Preston (District 5) and “community members who live near current Navigation Centers,” will announce a renewed push to require Navigation Centers to be built in every Supervisorial District this afternoon, noting that “the remaining neighborhoods that account for nearly a quarter of the homeless population make up less than 4% of temporary shelter and housing.”
