A two-day series of public hearings to air comments and ideas about the city's homelessness policies will be held Wednesday and Thursday in City Hall before the 10-Year Plan Council. The 33-member council, headed by former Supervisor Angela Alioto, was created to draft a 10-year plan to end chronic homelessness in San Francisco.

The hearings will be held in the Board of Supervisors Legislative Chamber, Room 250, from noon to 7 p.m. both days. For more information, call council facilitator Reg Smith at (415) 554-4339.
