Homelessness Update

Chairman Andrew Do speaking before the Santa Ana City Council at their meeting on Friday.
On Friday, Chairman Do spoke before the Santa Ana City Council at their special meeting regarding homelessness to share that he stands with them in saying, “enough is enough.”

Santa Ana is a compassionate community that takes care of people, but other cities can no longer take advantage of their generosity.

Santa Ana has supplied more shelter beds and units than any other city in the County. Santa Ana is home to the Courtyard, the County’s first transitional shelter that provides beds for 450 people. Majority of those individuals in the Courtyard come from outside Santa Ana.

Santa Ana has done their part and it is time for the rest of the County to step up.

On Monday, Chairman Do held a special meeting of the Board of Supervisors to discuss a solution to homelessness. Only Chairman Do and Vice Chairman Shawn Nelson were in attendance, so there wasn’t a quorum to allow for any votes or direction to be given.

Today, Judge Carter will host a status conference with the County and Orange County’s 34 cities to discuss a plan for the homeless.

“Macchiato” Opens its Doors in Santa Ana
On Wednesday, the Asian-inspired coffee and teahouse Macchiato opened its first location in Orange County on 17th street next to Gold’s Gym in Santa Ana. Chairman Andrew Do’s office congratulated owner Jason Tsai and manager Paris Zhang with a certificate of recognition for the occasion.

Macchiato began as the dream of two coffee enthusiasts and has grown into a three-store chain. The new shop offers coffee, tea, snacks, waffles, Paninis, and a host of other café staples along with distinct flavor combinations like Japanese Matcha, Tiramisu, and Horchata. The colorful art combined with a relaxing, comfortable environment and delicious coffee makes Macchiato a unique experience.
