San Mateo County’s Board of Supervisors will consider on Tuesday completing the purchase of two hotel properties to provide shelter to unhoused residents via the state’s Project Homekey initiative.

During a special meeting, which takes place via Zoom at 3 p.m. Tuesday, the supervisors will consider resolutions to complete the purchase of the Pacific Inn and the TownePlace Suites, both located in Redwood City.

Project Homekey is a statewide project that purchases hotels and other buildings to transform them into long-term housing for unsheltered people, especially those who are vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The county received more than $33 million in funding from the state to purchase the two hotel properties and provide a total of 170 rooms.
