Days Inn near Everett Mall chosen as new $10.8M homeless shelter

EVERETT ó Snohomish County is moving forward with its plan to convert an Everett hotel into emergency housing. On Monday, officials announced a tentative agreement to buy the Days Inn near the Everett Mall to shelter as many as 74 people.

The County Council plans to hear public comment and vote on the idea Aug. 17.

Officials first unveiled the plan late last year, contracting with the same real estate firm that helped King County transform hundreds of motel rooms into permanent supportive housing. The idea is that converting hotels is cheaper and faster than building shelters from the ground up.

Back then, only one Snohomish County councilmember, Sam Low, voted against the proposal, which would use one-time pandemic relief funds from the American Rescue Plan Act. Itís one of many county initiatives to address a growing homeless population, including a new sales tax.

1. Badly needed.

Hopefully it will be used for families and single parents.
