The Temporary Resting Center (TRC) located at 700 Airport Service Road on the west side of the Chico Municipal Airport was closed on Friday, September 17th, 2021 and is no longer available. Onsite notification took place Monday, September 13th, 2021.
Through settlement hearings with a Federal Magistrate, Judge Kendall J. Newman, regarding the preliminary injunction, it became clear the TRC was not considered an option for shelter space. Therefore, and with approval from Magistrate Newman, the TRC closed on September 17, 2021, and City staff continues to work towards a settlement agreement.
The City of Chico opened the TRC on June 25th, 2021, and operated the facility twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week to provide a temporary resting center for those experiencing homelessness. Resources deployed at the TRC included portable restrooms, handwashing stations, potable water, trash receptacles, a shade tent structure, security, and bus service four times per day.
