Sacramento officials are buying real estate to help the homeless

The City of Sacramento acquired over 100 acres of land from the federal government to help homeless people house 102-acre property. “We have the Department of Community Response, but I know their success really depends on our commitment,” City Council Member Mai Vang said, wanting more people to participate in the project. At least 25% of the property is used for affordable housing. Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said the goal is to create a cleaner, safer city while helping people find their way out of homelessness. “And it won’t be everyone, but as many people as possible. They go together, they can’t be apart,” Steinberg said. The property is near the Morrison Creek and Meadowview Regional Transit light rail stations I’ve received support from the federal government since June 2020, saying the purchase of land was urgently needed at a time when people are losing their jobs. I believe that they should strive to help us get better,” Singleterry said. Since being off the streets, Singleterry has been able to stay sober and believes other resources are needed for people to fully return to society “Jobs, anger management, drug programs and just helping to educate themselves and make people more independent,” Singleterry said Land to be fully developed, Steinberg said much of the property will initially be used as secure parking for the unprotected.

The City of Sacramento purchased over 100 acres of land from the federal government to help people affected by homelessness.

After a bidding process that cost the city $12.3 million from the US Department of Labor, city officials hope the community can participate in the development of the 102-acre property.

“We have the Department of Community Response, but I know their success really depends on our commitment,” City Council Member Mai Vang said, wishing more people would take part in the project.

At least 25% of the plots are used for affordable housing.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said the goal is to create a cleaner, safer city while helping people find their way out of homelessness.

“And it won’t be everyone, but as many people as possible. They go together, they can’t be apart,” Steinberg said.

The property is near the Morrison Creek and Meadowview Regional Transit light rail stations.

Trysilia Singleterry, which has received support from the federal government since June 2020, said the purchase of land was urgently needed at a time when people are losing jobs.

“As much as they have helped, there are too many more out there. I think they should strive to help us get better,” Singleterry said.

Since she’s been off the streets, Singleterry has been able to stay sober and believes other resources are needed for people to fully return to society.

“Jobs, anger management, drug programs and just helping to educate themselves and make people more independent,” Singleterry said.

Sacramento officials will host listening sessions to guide development of the property.

While officials work to fully develop a plan for the land, Steinberg said much of the property will initially be used as secure parking for the unprotected.
