The Haven Use Conversion. (Peralez)


Direct the Housing Department to explore the following options and execute an agreement with the Santa Clara County Office of Supportive Housing to convert the Haven from an emergency living facility to transitional housing:

1. Lease the Haven to Santa Clara County to operate as a transitional housing facility with supportive services;

a. Ensure the County secures housing for the current temporary residents of the Haven and the annual lease amount, determined by the Housing Department, is sufficient in covering the costs to house future displaced victims of fire, earthquakes, and other natural disasters.

2. Or sell the Haven to Santa Clara County;

a. Provided that up to ten percent of the sale proceeds fund streetscape and other improvements to the immediate neighborhood and upgrades to the back patio area used in as a common space by the Haven and the City-owned facility next door.

b. The County must secure housing for current temporary residents of the Haven and identify an alternative location for future victims who are displaced by fire, earthquakes, or other natural disasters.

3. Support the conversion by providing financial support to rehabilitate the building.
