BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont motel that was sold in December will soon reopen to serve a different clientele that includes the homeless.

The Bel-Aire Motel first opened in the middle of the last century and will reopen this spring in Burlington as an eight-unit apartment complex.

The Burlington Free Press says it will be owned and operated by the nonprofit organization Champlain Housing Trust. The trust says half of the units will accommodate homeless people who are recovering from, or undergoing treatment at, the University of Vermont Medical Center.

The trust won city approval this month. The most visible change might take place when crews remove the motel’s vintage sign from the late 1950s.
