In light of the fact that construction is still in progress, Scot Marsters asked the City of San Carlos and received from them approval for a six-months extension before we have to purchase the emergency supplies as specified in the special grant we received in 2016. Scot is a member of our ARC Shelter Steering Committee, a Board member of. San Carlos Lions Club and a former San Carlos City Planning Commissioner. We will take up this matter of purchasing the emergency supplies in November.
John Parkin from San Mateo Sheriff Dept. is on special assignment to look into what facilities in San Carlos are or could be emergency shelters/or evacuation centers. He saw in the Redwood City government directory that UCCSC is already listed as such. He took a walk-around our site 8/22/17 and we provided him with a copy of our agreement with American Red Cross and documentation showing the City grant we received for this purpose.
