Return To Front Page
(March 5, 2004) -- 1st district Councilwoman Bonnie Lowenthal and 5th district Councilwoman Jackie Kell have jointly agendized an item for the March 9, 2004 City Council agenda, directing the Planning Commission to investigate amending the Zoning and Building
Regulations to allow a pilot program for conversion of existing motel and hotel
buildings to special needs housing.
Councilmembers Lowenthal and Kell indicate in their agendizing memo that the purpose of the study is to "assess the changes necessary to allow existing motels and hotels to be converted to better managed special needs housing."

Conversion of Existing Motels to Special Needs Housing
There are a number of existing hotel and motel buildings that have a blighting
influence upon the surrounding community through their operation or appearance.
This has been of great concern to the surrounding neighborhoods. Many of these
buildings have required significant use of public safety resources over a number of
years and have led to blighting influences on the corridors and surrounding
neighborhoods. These buildings often serve as de facto housing rather than as the
temporary lodging originally intended. The purpose of this study is to assess the
changes necessary to allow existing motels and hotels to be converted to better
managed special needs housing.
Regarding the above, we respectfully request that the City Council refer this matter
to the Planning Commission to investigate amending the Zoning and Building
Regulations to allow a pilot program for the conversion of existing motel and hotel
buildings to special needs housing most impacted.
Respectfully request that the City Council refer this matter to the Planning
Commission for review and recommendation to City Council.
