The Davison House operated by Mono County Behavioral Health was the only sober living and transitional housing in Mono or Inyo County before the doors closed in 2011. The property is now on the market for a steal; bids will start at $150,000. Developers of low-income housing will be able to bid below that price until October 9.
Deed restrictions imposed by the Mono County Supervisors will ensure the property will continue to serve the public. It can only be used for community or affordable housing.
Behavioral Health wants to expedite the sale. The original starting bid price was $300,000, but was considered to be above market value, according to Supervisor Stacy Corless.
Mono Supervisors have since halved the minimum bid requirement.
