There is a special meeting of the STNC on Thursday night to vote on a letter of support for the Day Street Apartments. The Day Street Apartments are 46 (44 of which are studio apartments) units that will be built to provide low cost housing for the homeless.
This is a much needed facility that should help with S-T’s growing homeless population. The facility will provide low rent apartments and services, and will be run by LA Family Housing Services (LAFHS), a highly regarded and professional organization that has recently opened a similar facility in Sun Valley.
LAFHS has met with the STNC’s Land Use Committee numerous times over the last year and has made presentations and answered many questions about the project at each meeting. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a by-right project be as vetted and examined as much as the Day Street Apartments have. LAFHS has been a real friend to our community, and has personally assisted me in finding housing for several homeless individuals in our area. In addition, LAFHS has been an invaluable participant in Councilman Krekorian’s Homeless Connect Day events. The Sunland-Tujunga Alliance submitted a letter of support for the Day Street Apartments on Tuesday and it’s my hope that the STNC will vote on Thursday to support this much needed facility as well. The meeting is at 6pm at North Valley City Hall, 7747 Foothill Blvd. The special meeting had to be called because LAFHS is up against a funding deadline and needs letters of support from community groups by Jan 9th.
