Marin County Supervisor Katie Rice, who represents the area around the proposed site at 1251 S. Eliseo Drive, is scheduled to participate in the meeting along with other stakeholders, according to county officials.

The plan is to build between 43 and 50 units of "permanent supportive housing" for single adults experiencing homelessness in the county.

In addition to housing, the site would feature a range of services including case management, mental health, educational and vocational programs.

Episcopal Community Services will own the building, which sits near Corte Madera Creek, and would also serve as the facility's operator.
