A panel discussion tonight will focus on the homeless population in the North Side. The discussion is intended to start dialogue on how to deal with the issue. One topic that may come up is the Mexican War Streets Society's attempt to gain historic designation for the former Malta Temple, where the Salvation Army now operates. The Salvation Army wants to re-model the building so it can better handle the homeless population of the North Side. Panel members will include Councilwoman Tonya Payne, and representatives from the Salvation Army.
