Mayor to Announce Administrative Rule Banning Camping Around Safe Rest Villages

Sources within City Hall tell WW that Mayor Ted Wheeler is preparing an administrative rule that would ban camping around the city’s planned safe rest villages.

The administrative rule would also ban camping on the route between a safe rest village and the nearest transit station. The rule’s intent is to prevent the safe rest villages, which the city seeks to establish in six neighborhoods, from becoming centers of tent camping on nearby streets, which has happened at the downtown C3P0 village which was established by the city. (At other villages, this has not been the case.)
