Document Description
The Salvation Army Bell Oasis Apartments II Project is a permanent supportive housing project located on a 76,192-square-foot (1.75-acre) site within The Salvation Army’s campus in the City of Bell, California, located at 5600 Rickenbacker Road. The proposed project would involve construction of a three-story, 39,690-square-foot apartment building consisting of 57 studio units of permanent support housing and a two-bedroom staff unit for an on-site manager, for a total of 58 apartment units. The proposed housing is permanent and long term for homeless individuals, including homeless veterans, and there is no temporary housing contemplated or included as part of the project. All future residents would be placed in the project through the Los Angeles County Coordinated Entry System, with veterans approved for residency by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs office. The project would also provide administrative and supportive service spaces including two 114-square-foot case manager office spaces and a 107-square-foot U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs office to assist residents with housing stability. A full-time staff person residing on-site would be available as needed during evenings and weekends, whereas staff of The Salvation Army’s Bell Shelter would be available 24/7. Other project amenities would include a recreation room, decks, a lounge/computer area, a fitness room, a raised garden area, and a library. The project would provide a total of five parking spaces immediately to the west of the proposed building for staff, including one ADA accessible space.
