The Towne Manor Motel in Johnstown is officially locked and empty just days after City Officials decided to close the building due to poor living conditions. A bright yellow legal notice was posted on the doors of the Towne Manor Motel last Monday — giving Residents just 48 hours to find another living situation. Those Residents had all of their belongs packed up by Friday afternoon and Cambria County Officials were there guiding them to their next location.
A Cambria County Official says they are assisting twelve former Residents of the Motel and are temporarily taking them to nearby Hotels until they find a more permanent place to stay. The Official also says people can assist those Residents by calling the United Way Laurel Highlands or by calling Cambria County Mental Health. Tracy Selak, the Administrator for Cambria County Behavioral Health, Intellectual Disabilities and Early Intervention saying: “We need to realize, for these people I mean we call it a Motel, it has been their home. Its important to be understanding, empathetic, and you know, offer a lending hand if you can.”
We’ve reached out to the Owners of the Towne Manor Motel for comment and have not heard back.
