City Council Approves the Purchase of the Luxury Inn
On Tuesday, September 16, 2022, City Council unanimously approved the $16.5 million purchase of the Luxury Inn - a 78-room hotel at 5950 Long Beach Blvd. in an effort to both address homelessness and improve quality of life. The housing facility is expected to open in October 2023, with a prioritization on people who have been homeless over a year and have a mental disability. There will be on-site case management to help people facing mental health problems and to assist in finding permanent housing. This is part of Project Homekey, an effort to address persons experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. Sponsors of this item are the Economic Development Department and Health and Human Service Department.
