Homeowners Association Formally Opposes Homeless Hotels

818 Hotel

The Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization (WHHO) has sent a formal letter to Councilman Bob Blumenfield that “vehemently objects to your support for the proposed use of the 818 Hotel, as well as the Extended Stay Hotel… for homeless shelter housing.” Their objections center around their proximity to Taft High School and the general designation  that they are “Housing First” programs which have a low barrier for entry, individuals do not have to be sober, drug-free or mentally stable. Blumenfield has requested that 818 be for homeless families and Extended Stay for seniors, but those designations have not yet been approved. WHHO further requested that the projects not move forward without significant changes and assurances to the community.
