Medford approves homeless hotel

A motel being turned into a transitional housing project for fire survivors and homeless people received a $450,000 grant from the Medford Urban Renewal Agency Thursday night.

“It’s a great project,” said MURA board member Tim D’Alessandro. “It’s a step in the right direction.”

Rogue Retreat, a Medford homeless advocacy organization, bought The Redwood Inn, at 722 N. Riverside Ave., using a $2.35 million grant and has started converting it into 47 suites with kitchens.

The organization, with help from MURA, received the money to buy the hotel from a portion of the $30 million Project Turnkey state grant program designed to aid fire victims in Oregon.
