(KRON) — Officials recently approved a proposal to build more housing in San Jose. Mayor Matt Mahan tweeted Friday that his plan to build housing at the Cerone Yard is one step closer to coming to fruition.

The site, located at the southeast corner of Zanker Road and State Route 237, will provide 200 emergency temporary housing units and will keep unhoused people off the streets.

“This shelter is far cheaper and more efficient to deploy than the status quo approach,” Mahan said on X. “The situation on our streets is a crisis – and it’s time we act like it.”

Earlier this year, Governor Gavin Newsom committed state funding for 200 quick-build units in San Jose.
