Paris Mayor Says Plans to Open Winter Shelter for Homeless in L'Hotel de Ville City Hall

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th October, 2018) Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has said that she intends to open winter shelters for homeless people in municipal centers of the French capital, including l'Hotel de Ville which houses the city's local administration.

Hidalgo told Le Journal du Dimanche newspaper that the city needed some 3,000 additional emergency accommodation places.

"We could use empty buildings, and we are also going to open municipal centers [for homeless]. L'Hotel de Ville in Paris should set an example and demonstrate that it is possible to shelter homeless people everywhere," the mayor said.

According to Hidalgo, L'Hotel de Ville will open its doors to homeless women starting from late November.
