L&M Motel in Healdsburg (picture courtesy of Mayor Osvaldo Jimenez)
The City of Healdsburg is moving to establish its first transitional housing shelter. On Tuesday night, the City Council unanimously voted to establish the shelter at the former L & M Motel now named L & M Village. The project was awarded $7,048,800 through a Statewide competitive process. The site will provide interim housing for 22 individuals. Stays will be up to 30 days with the option for renewals based upon need. However, the goal is for individuals to work with on-site case managers to move to more permanent housing or appropriate care as soon as possible.
