Unsafe Camping Ordinance - On Tuesday June 13th at 1:00 pm, The full city council will consider changes to the city's Municipal Code to regulate homeless encampments in city.
neither the MBTC board or membership have taken a position on this as our meeting times have not allowed us to do so. The following link is to the City Council Staff Report on the proposed ordinance https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bdi9q7jcqei22bc/AAD5Ar8q10tWfUqQrRvruWkOa/Archive/2023?dl=0&subfolder_nav_tracking=1
Personally, I believe homelessness is certainly a crisis in our city. I support the proposed Unsafe Camping Ordinance as a needed tool to help address the homelessness crisis. If robustly enforced, I believe it will help lead more homeless to connect with services that are there to assist them and the ordinance will help protect the public’s safe access to our coastal parks, beaches and pathways and help protect the scenic and natural beauty of our coastlines.
I do so however with grave concern over enforcement. Our city leader’s track record on enforcing the Sidewalk Vending Ordinance has been lackluster. Because litigation against the ordinance was threatened our city leaders have yet to fully enforce the Sidewalk Vending Ordinance a year after it went into effect. This has caused the public’s safe access to our coastal parks, beaches and the scenic and natural beauty of the coastline and beaches to remain threatened.
The Unsafe Camping Ordinance, if not robustly enforced in the face of litigation, will just be window dressing and a waste of city staff’s time and the city’s money.
I urge everyone to consider showing support for the ordinance either in person at the City Council Hearing at 202 C St., via zoom https://sandiego.zoomgov.com/j/1601143486 or by making written web comments. Instructions on how to zoom or make web comments https://www.sandiego.gov/city-clerk/agenda-comment-form. I would also suggest sending an email to each city council member and their chief of staff. A list of their contacts may be found here https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bdi9q7jcqei22bc/AAD5Ar8q10tWfUqQrRvruWkOa/Archive/2023?dl=0&preview=Contact+List+for+San+Diego+Elected+Officials+(Pages)+9_12_22.docx&subfolder_nav_tracking=1
In your support please consider also sharing your concern that without enforcement of the ordinance especially when litigation is threatened, the ordinance will be a waste of time.
