Human services campus study is due to city next month

City leaders last week outlined ideas for a human services campus — a clearinghouse for charities providing food, healthcare and employment services to the needy.

Mayor Ava Frisinger and other top officials met representatives from the San Francisco-based consultant conducting a city-funded feasibility study of the proposed campus.

Former Councilman John Rittenhouse — a longtime proponent of the campus — updated council members about the study Aug. 16.

“I’m very confident that you’ll find the end product useful as you deliberate how to make this vision a reality,” he said.

The nonprofit Family Resource Center is a similar human services campus in Redmond. Rittenhouse serves on its board of directors.

The city and Family Resource Center partnered to study the need for a campus. The council started the process in December by spending $35,000 for the study.

Rittenhouse said the study should be completed and delivered to the city by late October. Officials used impact fees paid by the Talus developer to fund the study.
