Proposed Project

(haz clic aqui para información en Español)

This project is a request by Homeward Bound for a General Plan Amendment, Zoning Amendment, and Use Permit for the following:

  • General Plan Amendment to extend the high-density residential (HDR) land use designation of the adjacent site such that it would include this entire 190 Mill Street property.
  • A Zoning Map Amendment to extend the existing high-density residential zoning (HR1) of the adjacent site such that it would include this entire 190 Mill Street property
  • Use Permit to allow expansion of the existing emergency shelter to allow up to 60 beds
  • Separately-as a by-right project under AB2162 the project would include development of a 32-unit supportive housing project


On April 6, 2020, city council has approved the requested general plan amendment, zoning amendment and use permit for the 60-bed homeless shelter. This approval establishes a by-right permitting process for the 32-unit supportive housing project. The next step for this project is to submit for and obtain the necessary building permits for development of this site.
