Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer Votes Against Scrapping Tiny Cabin Plan & Giving $10 Million For Homelessness Back To The State Of California

News Date

Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer voted against rescinding the plan passed in March to set-up 150 cabins in Spring Valley to address homelessness in that area. After casting the lone “no vote” today, the Vice Chair of the Board of Supervisors released the following statement:

“Scrapping plans to build tiny cabins was the wrong decision,” said Supervisor Lawson-Remer. “There is no alternative plan and no guarantee the State will give us the $10 million. This feels like a big loss in the fight against homelessness. Clearing homeless encampments and moving people into tiny cabins is a better option than having people continue to sleep on the street.”

The County of San Diego has already spent nearly $500,000 on the design of the Jamacha Cabins in Spring Valley. The State of California has indicated publicly that the $10 million will no longer go to the County of San Diego without the tiny cabin project.
