Dear Council Members, I understand the guidelines recommended by the CDC regarding unhoused individuals and the need to not disperse them. However, that does not mean these encampments should be allowed anywhere in the city. They are absolutely filthy and should never be allowed near our waterways. There must be defined areas where this is allowed. Where it can be easily managed, cleaned up (at taxpayer expense)and outreach conducted. Irreparable damage to our public spaces is already done. It is your responsibility to not only care for our most vulnerable, but also to protect our public spaces AND hold people accountable. It is disgraceful the way some of you totally discounted our Chief of Police and his officers who put their lives on the line every single day. Please be very specific about managing these encampments. Your last vote lacks direction, common sense and decency for all of Chico. Ginny Griffin

I support leaving the camps alone and designate several car encampment for our community members to shelter in place.

I agree w/ R. Owen. How can you expect to effectively address this issue without some where where the homeless can legally be?

Charles, that sounds like blackmail to me. "Either create a free place for us, or we trash your parks." That is a false dichotomy. We do not allow criminals to continue to commit crimes while we figure out what works for them. This is no different. The damage must stop, no matter what. Stop asking for a handout yourself, and do something in the private sector. There is no more room at the public trough.

CHAT's Tiny Home Village and Safe Car Park proposals ask no money from the City. CHAT has studied successful programs in other cities and adapted their plans for our community.

I also believe that there should be a designated place for the camps, preferably outside the city or on its outskirts. And it is necessary to demand from these people that they maintain cleanliness. I recently picked up the best travel pillows on homemakerguide.com and thought that this place should be ennobled and a conversation should be held with these people. This can not continue.
