From the Fresno Bee:
Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Thursday the Fresno Housing Authority, in partnership with the city of Fresno, will receive nearly $16.5 million to purchase and rehabilitate three more motels to house people experiencing homelessness.
The city and the county of Fresno have already been awarded funding through the same project for two other motels, bringing the total to five motels to $39.4 million. Except for 25 rooms in Huron, the motels are all located along Motel Drive, which City Council President Miguel Arias said has “become a magnet for drug trafficking and human trafficking.”
“The purchase and renovation of multiple motels in that corridor is going to change lives for generations to come,” Arias said during a city council meeting Thursday morning.
