Can you give some background on how the residential buffer was included in the current proposal, given the strong concerns from staff in their July report about including this?

Below is a link to the legislative documents associated with the proposed encampment management policy for city council on Oct. 20. It will be updated tomorrow with any additional materials https://oakland.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=4585366&GUID=CCE3EE51-3DC3-4A52-8505-36B3C2F5B820&Options=&Search=

That image shows the impact of the residential buffer, makes most of Oakland off limits.

It's a great map, shows all the hygiene stations and notes on how they are regularly serviced. And you can click on the layers to see the impact of each of the buffer restrictions.

What implementation components (staff/funding) will be part of the management of high sensitivity areas? There was a supplemental report by the City on how other cities tried self-management and non-profit management of large encampments. Is that planned for Oakland’s high sensitiviy areas? Or will they completely off-limits?

And thanks for sharing implementation components in general! Great to know that outreach and public works teams will be dramatically increased.

What kind of partnerships have you established with other government agencies, non-profits, local church parishes etc. to address the location needs for the homeless?

This residential zone restriction was not recommended by City Staff in the July Staff Agenda report. Questions directed to Loren Taylor and the Mayor on why it is now included have gone unanswered. I’m sure there is loud vocal community support from the housed community. However, City Staff had a number of concerns about including this restriction. Staff sited issues with enforcement as they “will be challenging without significant areas identified where people can camp, such as in a managed camping program.” (1) There is no managed camp program in the current proposal. Additionally, it’s problematic equity standpoint, “as it would disproportionately impact some Council Districts over others and concentrate encampments in areas of the City that are, on average, poorer, non-White, and have poorer air quality.”

50 foot buffer is no different from 200 foot buffer.

Are reps from Public Work's encampment team allowed to serve on the Homelessness Advisory Board? If not, what is the protocol for getting their input in shaping policy?

This is good policy, but the residential buffer is a big concern that needs to be addressed.
