Studios at Montero Celebrates Grand Opening, Welcomes New Residents

Petaluma, CA – July 13, 2023 – Representatives from the City of Petaluma, Burbank Housing, Committee on the Shelterless (COTS) and the County of Sonoma gathered Thursday afternoon to cut the ribbon and signal the opening of Studios at Montero, the county’s newest and largest permanent supportive housing (PSH) endeavor to-date. The project cost a total of $18.3 million, with major contributions of $15.1 million in State of California funding through its Project Homekey program, $1.7 million from the City of Petaluma, $1.5 million from Providence Health, and a $25,000 grant from Wells Fargo. Rehab construction at the former America’s Best Value Inn at 5135 Montero Way began in earnest last October, and eight months later the largest PSH project in Sonoma County opened its doors, offering homes and supportive services to those identified by the County as chronically homeless.
