At a June 22, 2021 City Council Study Session, City Council directed staff to proceed with developing a program design for a Safe Parking Pilot Program (Program) to be operated 24 hours a day, seven days a week (24/7). The program will provide up to 50 parking spots in a portion of the City-owned parking lot at 55 Stony Point Road. The Program is meant to provide unsheltered individuals living in vehicles and RVs with direct access to basic services and support services to help individuals move from homelessness into housing, while lessening the impacts of homelessness that we have seen in several areas of our community. The Safe Social Distancing Program that was launched in a section of the parking lot at Finley Community Center in May 2020 was an overall success. The Safe Parking Pilot Program will be closely modeled after many elements of that program. On December 7, 2021, following the City’s issuance of a Request for Proposals (RFP), City Council approved Catholic Charities as the Program operator.
