A 63-stall parking lot along the Figueroa Corridor is being considered as a potential site for affordable housing for military veterans. Last week, County Supervisor Hilda Solis put forward a motion to examine using the lot next to the Bob Hope Patriotic Hall at Figueroa Street and Washington Boulevard.
Solis’ motion calls for determining if the 30,000-square-foot lot could be converted into a parking structure that would include an unspecified number of housing units for veterans and their families. The conversion is dependent on Bob Hope Patriotic Hall’s parking needs, according to the motion.
The building at 1816 S. Figueroa St. hosts a number of events and activities for service members, including conferences and job fairs.
