  • Proposed Project Homekey Program at South Eliseo: 6 p.m. Tuesday, January 18 (participate on Zoom with passcode 795625 or dial 888-788-0099 with webinar ID 942 3787 1457 and passcode 795625); Spanish translation and captions available

The January 10 session is to be about Homelessness in Marin, including the Housing First initiative and the PSH program. The January 18 session will be focused on the 1251 South Eliseo Drive property in Larkspur. District 2 County Supervisor Katie Rice, who represents residents near the property, is scheduled to participate in the session along with other stakeholders. The meeting is set up to provide a forum for project updates, gather feedback from residents, and answer questions.

The County of Marin is seeking funding from the State of California to support the acquisition, rehabilitation, and operation of a housing facility of 43-50 units at the Larkspur location. The site for single adult residents would be owned and operated by Episcopal Community Services (ECS), in partnership with the County of Marin. The project would be tied to the state’s housing program called Project Homekey, set up to protect those experiencing homelessness who are at high risk for serious illness and are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The South Eliseo property represents an opportunity to revitalize an underutilized parcel, help reduce homelessness in Marin, and earn credit toward the City of Larkspur’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation goals; the parcel is just inside Larkspur’s city limits.
