This January, Pacific Builders will begin construction on the 32-unit Arcata Bay Crossing, a residence for people who need special assistance and, in many cases, face homelessness. The $4.5 to $5.7 million “green,” solar-arrayed project — to be funded by grants and loans — is a joint project of Housing Humboldt, Rural Communities Housing Development Corporation, Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services and Arcata House Partnership.

A news release from the group says 15 of the units will be for people with mental illness who are at risk of becoming homeless, and these folks will have access to on-site supportive services provided by the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services. Four other units will be reserved for people who are chronically homeless, and they’ll have help from the Arcata House Partnership. And the 12 remaining units will house people who make less than 60 percent of the area median income. Twenty-five of the units will be single room occupancy and six will be double occupancy. A resident manager will live in another unit. And there’ll be a laundry room, community room and kitchen and a meeting room.
