The Bridge Housing at 3210, 3248, and 3428 Riverside Dr. Lease project (Project) consists of an extended, or new lease, for approximately up to one year with continued use/operation, for approximately up to four years total use of the temporary Bridge Housing facility. A third-party service provider will operate the Project for the City and it is anticipated that a lease or similar operating and/or funding agreement may be executed. The purpose of the Project is to provide approximately up to one additional year, to the previously approved three years, of emergency shelter and case management 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.) On June 1, 2023, the Board of Recreation and Park Commission determined the Project was exempt under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and approved the Project. On August 1, 2023, the City Council determined the Project is exempt under CEQA and approved the Project.
