Document Description
The proposed project would implement a program whereby the City would select up to 15 Emergency Interim Housing (EIH) sites in order to provide temporary housing and supportive services for individuals, couples, and families experiencing homelessness. Potential EIH sites would be selected based on guidelines established in accordance with requirements set forth by the State law, City Ordinance No. 30199, and project Siting Guidelines. The project would construct two-story modular buildings, each containing up to six units. Construction activities would last approximately 12 months per site and be limited to surface grading and utility trenching. An average EIH site size is typically two to three acres with a service population of approximately 50 to 200 individuals. The estimated average service population per site is expected to be 100 individuals. The expected minimum stay is four months with a maximum stay of 12 months.
