THE VILLAGE ROUND 2 AT THE OAKLAND CITY COUNCIL LIFE ENRICHMENT COMMITTEE
We are very pleased to be supporting the Village in their work to acquire a City-owned parcel for an encampment. At Council on September 19th we passed the first reading of the Shelter Crisis Ordinance, which will receive its second reading October 3rd. In the meantime, we’re going to urge this Council Committee to lock in an address!
You can sign up for both Open Forum and Agenda Item 3, which is the first item of the day. We’d suggest keeping Open Forum comments general, concerning the need to assign City-owned land to unsheltered communities. Then on Agenda Item 3, please speak specifically about the Village’s contributions to West and North Oakland, and how they should be allowed to do their thing so that not-yet-housed folks can have a place to stabilize and flourish while they look for jobs and permanent housing. Here’s the City Administrator’s report for our Agenda Item.
