What exactly does temporary mean?

In this case, temporary means that the facility will be in this location for a temporary period. This is not the long-term homeless shelter solution for Tustin. Once the long-term shelter is open, this temporary facility will close.  Pursuant to the settlement agreement, the City of Tustin is required to start operating a shelter within 120 days and to operate a homeless shelter for a minimum of 24 months. 

The City of Tustin is continuing to design and plan the establishment of the Tustin Police Department Substation and Parks Department Annex at the former ATEP facility, which the City hopes to open in conjunction with the opening of the Veterans Sports Park.
