Camarillo is moving to convert an 83-room hotel into a supportive and transitional housing facility to help address the city's growing homeless population.  If the city secures a grant from the state's Department of Housing and Community Development, it will partner with the county and developer Jamboree Housing Corp. to purchase and renovate the Days Inn hotel on Daily Drive. The Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved a $3.5 million grant Tuesday contingent on Camarillo getting approved for the upcoming third wave of funding from Project Homekey, the state program to build housing for those experiencing homelessness.
