In his State of the State speech last week, Gov. Gavin Newsom discussed an executive order that opened up 286 state properties across California to be used as sites for temporary housing for the homeless. But the sites aren’t evenly distributed throughout the state, and questions still remain about how these sites will be used and how they’ll be coordinated with various city organizations.
According to the governor’s office, the sites were chosen as a subset of properties that had already been designated by the governor for affordable housing. These sites were chosen after they met a list of criteria, mainly that they were not next to schools or daycares and that they were handicap accessible.
