Sonoma County has closed escrow on the purchase of the Sebastopol Inn, the second of two supportive housing complexes acquired by the County through funds made available by Gov. Gavin Newsom through Project Homekey. The complex will house formerly homeless individuals including those most at risk of infection from COVID-19.
The 31-room complex, located at 6751 Sebastopol Ave. just east of downtown Sebastopol, is scheduled to officially open to residents during the week of December 28. A virtual opening ceremony, including a video tour and official naming of the complex, is planned for Wednesday, December 30.
The first complex, formerly known as Hotel Azura, opened on December 14, a day after it was officially dedicated as Mickey Zane Place during a virtual opening of the complex. The 44-room complex located near College and Mendocino avenues was named in honor of the mother of Sonoma County Supervisor Shirlee Zane, who was a tireless advocate of the need to invest in services for the homeless, seniors, and those in need of safety net services and resources.
