Document Description
The 1256 W. 7th Street (Mayfair Hotel) Interim Housing project (Project) consists of funding allocation, site acquisition, minor renovations, lease or similar agreement, and operation of an interim housing facility at an existing 294-room hotel that is currently vacant, but that through July 2022 operated as a Project Roomkey facility. The purpose of the Project is to provide emergency shelter for people experiencing homelessness to help bridge their transition from living on the streets to finding services and, ultimately, living in transitional and/or permanent housing. Project beneficiaries include the homeless community, the public, and local businesses. (Please see the attached narrative for more details.) On August 18, 2023, the City Council determined the Project was exempt under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and approved the Project.
