Eureka, Ca. (KIEM) –The Eureka City Council’s decision to re-zone an area of land on the south side of town gives Betty Chinn the greenlight to move forward with her transitional housing project.
This comes more than two years after the 12 trailers were donated by p-g-and-e.
The trailers will remain on the North Crowley site, and the rezoning of the land using a “Q” qualified combining zone will allow Chinn to build residential units for single individuals, couples, and families. The transitional housing project is expected to be able to serve up to 40 people.
After many obstacles, Chinn is excited to see the support from the city and community to get the ball rolling on the project. According to Chinn, the project’s main goal is help people build up rental history so they can find permanent housing.
Moving forward, Chinn says the ball is in the city’s court on when construction will begin on the site.
