Related California in partnership with Burbank Housing are master planning the former Journey's End Mobile Home Park that was tragically destroyed in the 2017 Tubbs wildfire. The redevelopment and expansion will transform the site into a mixed-income, intergenerational, transit-oriented village centralized around a community park. The development maximizes connections to the Mendocino Avenue and Bicentennial Way transit facilities, and is 1/2 mile to retail, the Kaiser Permanent Santa Rosa campus and the County government complex. The fully redeveloped complex will include up to 532 residential units with 162 affordable senior units and up to 370 market rate units.

The first phase of the development will consist of 94 units of affordable housing for low- and very low-income seniors age 55+. Qualifying prior Journey's End Mobile Home Park seniors displaced by the wildfires will be offered first priority for the affordable units. Onsite amenities will meet the needs of the senior residents and include a multipurpose activity space, health and wellness spaces, media room, community gardens, laundry rooms and a reception area with alternative transportation mode kiosks or monitors.

The first phase of the development is being financed with conventional debt, FCAA Disaster 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits, CDBG-DR funds and Project Based Section 8 Vouchers awarded by the Santa Rosa Housing Authority. Additional soft debt was awarded by Sonoma County's County Fund for Housing (CFH). Grants from Kaiser Permanente and Tipping Point Foundation provided critical relocation assistance to rehouse the residents displaced by the wildfire as well as master planning efforts.  Completion of phase one is slated for July 2023.
