EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 25TH 2019. AND THAT CONCLUDES THE CONSENT CALENDAR THANK >>YOU COMMISSIONER. CASE OR COMMISSIONER ANDERSON. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I JUST HAVE A COMMENT TO MAKE ABOUT THE RESOLUTION THREE POINT 3A SIGNERS STAND. WHAT THAT DOES IS IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR PEOPO USE THEIR VOUCHERS ON A MONTH MONTH BASIS AS OPPOSED TO A YEAR BASIS AND THAT IS FOUND ON PAGE TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY THREE OF >>OVER FIVE HUNDRED >>PAGES OF A REPORT. WE HAD TO SUBMIT TO HUD I BELIEVE AND I’M LOOKING AT THE CITY ATTORNEY TO SEE IF WE CAN PASS LEGAL REQUIREMENTS I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT AS SOMEONE >>WHO LOOKS AT THESE THIS RIAL >>IN REAL TIME ON PAPER IF ALL I NEED TO >>SEE IS REALLY PAGE 233 AND MAYBE THE INTRODUCTORY PAGE. AND IF WE CAN DO THAT ELECTRONIC LEAD TO THE COUNSELORS AND THEN THE COUNSE WHO DO GET THEIR MATERIAL I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO DO GET THEIR MATERIAL PRINTED OUT IF WE COULD JUST PRINT OUT THE ONE OR TWO PAGES THAT ARE AFFECTED AS OPPOSED TO THE FIVE HUNDRED PLUS PAGES THAT WE REALLY DON’T NEED TO PRINT OUT. AND I DON’T KNOW IF THAT WOULD SATISFY HUD LEGAL REQUIREMENTS WHOEVER WE HAVE TO DO IF IT’S SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY >>THAT’S FINE. COMMISSIONER WHEN IN FACT WE TYPICALLY DO THAT THANK YOU. THANK YOU. >>MISS YATES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK BRIEFLY TO THE TO THE ISSUE OF >>MONTHLY AS OPPOSED TO >>ANNUAL LEASE AGREEMENTS WE’RE DOING THAT. SURE >>NICOLE YATES HOUSING ADMINISTRATOR SALEM HOUSING AUTHORITY AND THE REASON THAT WE’RE ASKING FOR THIS RESOLUTION TO BE ADOPTED IS TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR VOUCHER HOLDERS WHO HAVE BEEN DENIED OCCUPANCY BECAUSE WE REQUIRE A YEAR LONG LEASE AGREEMENT IN THEIR INITIAL TERM. THIS WILL ALLOW THEM TO BE ABLE >>TO REPORT TO ONLY DO THE MONTH TO MONTH TENANCY WHICH IS IN LINE WITH ALL THE NEW LANDLORD TENANT LAWS THAT HAVE BEEN COMING OUT. MANY OF THEM ARE REQUIRING MONTH TO MONTH TENANCY AND NO LONG TERM CONTRACT. SO THIS IAGAIN IS ANOTHER WAY FOR THE HOUSING AUTHORITY TO ATTEMPT TO MAKE IT EASIER TO USE LEASE VOUCHERS IN OUR COMMUNITY. EXCELLENT. THANK YOU I WOULD JUST LIKE TO APOLOGIZE FOR MY VOICE THAT APPARENTLY WE’VE DECIDED NOW IS A GOOD TIME FOR IT TO GO AWAY. SO WE WILL TRY TO >>GET THROUGH THE REST OF THIS MEETING. IN THE MEANTIME WE HAVE NO PUBLIC HEARINGS OR SPECIAL ORDERS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION REPORTS MISUSE. WOULD YOU CARE TO PROVIDE AN UPDATE ON 6B THE REDWOOD CROSSINGS PROJECT PLEASE SHARE >>REGULATE CROSSINGS AS IN THIS TOPIC INDICATED IS IT 37 NEW UNITS THAT ARE GOING TO BE ADDED INTO THE HOUSING AUTHORITY STOCKS WE’VE TALKED ABOUT THIS BRIEFLY IN OTHER >>MEETINGS AND THIS IS GOING TO BE THE SALEM HOUSING AUTHORITIES FIRST HOUSING FIRST MODEL PROJECTS WE DO HAVE GOOD NEWS THAT THE DOCUMENTS WERE ALL SIGNED FOR CLOSING ON FRIDAY. WE HOPE TO FUND THIS PROJECT ON WEDNESDAY AND WE HOPE TO HAVE BY THE END OF DECEMBER BEGINNING OF JANUARY CONSTRUCTION STARTED TO ALLOW FOR THIS PROJECT TO GO FORWARD. THIS IS 37 SINGLE ROOM OCCUPANCY THAT WILL HAVE SIX TRANSITIONAL RESPITE UNITS THAT WILL BE LEASED TO SALEM HEALTH. THIS WILL BE FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE HOMELESS AND UNABLE TO GO BACK INTO THE STREETS OR HOMELESS CAMPS. IT WILL GIVE THEM A RESPITE FACILITY FOR THEM TO TRANSITION INTO FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THE OTHER 31 UNITS ARE 30 OF THEM WILL BE SINGLE ROOM OCCUPANCY WITH A SHARED BATHROOM FACILITY WITH ALL OF THEM WILL HAVE KITCHEN NETS THE ONE UNIT IS A FULLY >>ACCESSIBLE 88 UNITS ONSITE. WE ARE WORKING WITH THE MID WILLAMETTE VALLEY COMMUNITY ACTION AGENCY TO HELP US WITH THE PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING. THIS WILL BE FOR THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE CHRONICALLY HOMELESS IN OUR COITY AND WE HOPE TO HAVE IT UP AND RUNNING WITHIN. I WOULD SAY FOUR MONTHS PENDING CONSTRUCTION DELAYS DUE TO WEATHER BUT THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR BOTH THE COMMUNITY AND FOR THE HOUSING AUTHORITY WE’RE VERY EXCITED TO HAVE THIS PROJECT. THANK YOU COMMISSIONER HENDERSON THANK YOU. MIZZOU WOULD SAY I HAVE A QUESTION ON 6 >>A WHICH IS YOUR PROGRAM MANAGEMENT REPORT ON PAGE 2 OF THE REPORT >>YOU’VE GOT GENERAL HOUSING PROGRAMS AND CLIENT PROFILE AND YOU HAVE ABOUT FOUR ORFIVE PARAGRAPHS THAT YOU LIST ALL LIKE SECTION 8. THERE’S TWO THOUSAND EIGHT EIGHT HUNDRED NINETY SIX >>HOUSEHOLDS. THE VETERANS ASSISTANCE THERE SIXTY THREE FAMILY UNIFICATION THERE IS NINETY FIVE AND YOU GO ONTO THAT LIST. MY QUESTION IS IS THERE ANY OVERLAP IN THAT OR COULD WE ADD UP EACH ONE OF THOSE >>FIGURES WHICH I DID AND INSTEAD TWO THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED NINETY SIX WHICH IS JUST THE VOLUNTEERS IF WE ADD THEM ALL UP WE ARE PROVIDING HOUSES FOR HOUSING FOR THREE HUNDRED THREE THOUSAND >>SIX HUNDRED NINETY ONE. IS THAT THE CORRECT FIGURE THEN THAT’S >>FOR THE SECTION VOUCHER PROGRAM CORRECT >>NO NO. THE SECTION 8 VOUCHER SAYS TWO THOUSAND GHT HUNDRED NINETY SIX. AND THEN EACH ONE OF THE OTHER PROGRAMS ADDS SOME MORE THAT’S GREAT. SO THERE IS NO OVERLAP BETWEEN THOSE FOUR AMONG THOSE PROGRAMS. SO ALL OF THESE >>PROGRAMS ARE ACTUALLY MANAGED BY THE VOUCHER CASE MANAGER. THEY ARE SEPARATE ENTITIES OF FUNDING THAT WE HAVE BEEN GRANTED FOR. SO >>IN FACT WE HAVE TWO THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRENINETY SIX AND NOT THE LARGER FIGURE BECAUSE EACH OF THOSE OTHER FIGURES ARE INCLUDED IN? OK? THANK YOU >>THANK YOU? ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS. COMMISSIONER YOUNG >>LIVES I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS ALSO FOR MISS >>WHAT’S IT.

THANK YOU THANK YOU >>ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS WE’RE SEEING THAT THIS IS THE WEEKS THAT THE WEEK THAT WE GIVE THANKS I WOULD LIKE TO JUST GIVE THANKS TO OUR VERY CAPABLE DEPUTY CITY RECORDER FOR REMINDING ME THAT WE DIDN’T ACTUALLY VOTE ON A CONSENT AGENDA >>SO LET’S BACK UP AND WE HAVE A MOTION ON THE FLOOR TO APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY I >>I ALL THOSE OPPOSED NAY. >>MOTION CARRIES AND SEEING NO FURTHER BUSINESS BEFORE THE HOUSING AUTHORITY WE ARE ADJOURNED >> MY >>CALL THIS MEETING OF THE CITY OF SALEM URBAN RENEWAL AGENCY TO ORDER FOR NOVEMBER 25TH THEY THE RECORDER WOULD PLEASE CALL THE ROLL BOARD MEMBER CASE OR BOARD MEMBER ANDERSON.

I LIVED ON THE STREETS I LIVED IN THE COLD. I KNOW WHAT THAT’S LIKE. I GET IT. 18 BECAUSE I HAD AN AWESOME FOSTER PARENTS WHO TAUGHT ME HOW TO WORK AND HOW TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT. I WAS NOT AN ABLE TO BE SOMEBODY WHO WAS A VICTIM. I AM AN OVER COMER AND I THINK WHAT IS MISSING IN THIS WHOLE STORY IS WE HAVE OVERCOMING AS A GOAL WE HAVE STAYED IN THE VICTIM TRAUMA SCENE AS A GOAL. THIS BY ORDINANCE WON’T WORK. IT HAS NO TEETH BECAUSE WE HAVE NO OTHER OPTION AND I HAVE AN OPTION. WE GOT IT TWO HUNDRED SEVEN THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT BUILDING. IT’S CALLED HILLCREST AND I’M CALLING IT HOPE CREST AND IT’S ABLE TO TAKE SOON AT LEAST 700 PEOPINDOORS AND 100 PEOPLE IN TENTS IF THEY STILL NEED IT. THERE ARE WAYS FOR US TO CALL LOCATE SERVICES ON THAT SITE AND SUPPORT EVERY HOMELESS PERSON GETTING OUT OF THE RAIN. LET PEOPLE COME IN AND BEAT THEM AND BEGIN TO HELP THEM AND SAY WHAT WE REALLY NEED. IF WE SAY WE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE BUT WE’RE NOT WILLING TO CO-LOCATED OUR SERVICES TOGETHER WE’RE LYING AN EFFORT TOBE NICE. WE ARE LYING BECAUSE WE’RE GIVING THE SERVICES THE MONEY IS OUT THERE BUT GET BY ALL THE SERVICES ARE OUT THERE THE MONEY IS THERE. ONE ORGANIZATION ALONE HERE GETS 12 MILLION IN YTO HELP THE HOMELESS. PROPOSAL THAT I AM PROPOSING WILL BE LESS THAN THREE MILLION A YEAR ONCE UP AND ONLY 5 TO GET IT UP AND 3 MILLION A YEAR.

WE’VE GOT TO ALL BE TOGETHER IN THE SAME WAY WINNING WE’RE GOING TO DO IT HOW IS IT GOING TO HAPPEN AND START DOING THE BUSINESS WE’VE BEEN COLLABORATING ON THIS INITIATIVE FOROVER TWO YEARS AND WE’VE STILL HAVE PEOPLE IN WINTER WHEN WE’RE ON THE STREET THAT IS WRONG AND YOU HAVE MY TIME. THANKS >>RAY BECKY BEAMAN. CONNIE GRIFFITHS >>GEOFFREY MILLER AND BECKY BEAMAN. I I’M IN THE SWAN NEIGHBORHOOD AND I’M AN ENABLER. IF THERE WERE NO HOMELESS IN FRONT OF THE BUSINESSES I VISIT I WOULDN’T BE REMINDED OF THEIR DESPERATE UNMET NEED. I DON’T WANT TO SEE IT. DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT. DON’T WANT THINK ABOUT IT. I’M LIKE YOU BUT THE HOMELESS ARE HERE. SO I’VE TAKEN ON ADDITIONAL ACTIONS. I USE HOMELESS PEOPLE TO HELP ME WITH MY YARD WORK AND HANDYMAN TASKS. IN THE PROCESS OF WORKING WITH A ROTATING ROSTER OF HIT HEAD HOMELESS HELPERS I’VE BEEN BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO HELP A HOMELESS COUPLE OUT OF HOMELESSNESS. HE HAD LOST HIS CONSTRUCTION JOB IN THE 2008 HOUSING MARKET DOWNTURN AND THEY LOST THEIR HOME. WHEN I MET THEM THEY WERE LIVING IN A VEHICLE AND WERE ON COMMERCIAL STREET HOLDING SIGNSTHAT SAID NEED WORK. I ASKED THEM TO WORK FOR ME AND HE IN PARTICULAR TURNED OUT TO HAVE SERIOUS SKILLS AND A GREAT ATTITUDE I RECOMMENDED HIM TO FRIENDS WHO ALSO HIRED HIM WHEN THEIR VEHICLE WAS TOWED BECAUSE THEY WERE DRIVING WITHOUT INSURANCE. I PICKED THEM UP FROM THE ROADSIDE AND DROVE THEM AROUND TO GET INSURANCE AND BAIL OUT THE VEHICLE. I LOVED THE MONEY FOR A USED TOYOTA PICKUP AND PAID FOR REPAIRS WHEN THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT TODAY THEY LIVE IN THE CARETAKER COTTAGE ON A FRIEND’S PROPERTY TENDING WITH CHICKENS AND THE HORSES AND DOING HANDYMAN WORK FOR THE LANDOWNER AND FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME AND HE HAS PAID ME BACK ALL THE MONEY THAT I LOANED HIM. I’M CURRENTLY PART OF A GROUP HELPING WORKING TO HELP ANOTHER GUY OUT OF HOMELESSNESS. LET’S CALL HIM TOM. TOM WAS SLEEPING ON THE STREET FOR FIVE YEARS BEFORE I MET HIM AND THIS CAUSED SOME TRAUMA AND DYSFUNCTION THAT ARE HARDER TO WORKH THAN MY PREVIOUS COUPLE. THANKFULLY ONE OF OUR GROUP IS A MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL WHO UNDERSTANDS WHEN TOM IS ACTING OUT OF THIS DYSFUNCTION WITHOUT THIS EXPERTISE THE REST OF US WOULD BE AT A LOSS TO KNOW HOW TO HELP? WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH TOM FOR ALMOST THREE YEARS AND IT’S TWO STEPS FORWARD ONE STEP BACK. THIS LAST WINTER HE LIVED IN FIFTH WHEEL IN A LITTLE TOWN UP HIGHWAY 22. HE OWNS THE FIFTH WHEEL NOW SO THAT’S AND HIS LICENSE TO DRIVE. BUT HE’S STILL NOT TAKING HIS PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS SO HIS DIABETES AND DEPRESSION ARE WORKING AGAINST HIM. I THINK THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE IS WRONG. I LISTENED AT THE WORK SESSION LAST WEEK ON THIS ORDINANCE AND I NOTICED THERE WERE NO MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS ADVISING THE GROUP. I THINK THERE ARE MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS IN THE AUDIENCE TONIGHT. PLEASE LISTEN CAREFULLY TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY THEY’VE PROVEN TO ME THAT THEY KNOW THINGS ABOUT THE HOMELESS THAT ARE BEYOND MY UNDERSTANDING AND I THINK THEY CAN INFORM THE DECISIONS THAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO MAKE. I USED MY TIME. THANK YOU. JEFFREY MILLER FOLLOWED BY KOREAN CALL FOLLOWED >>BY DEVIN MC MCGARRY I BELIEVE WAS RIGHT AND JEFFREY MILLER HOLLIS AND I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT THE SEATTLE EYEWITNESS IS VERY WRONG FOR A LOT OF REASONS FIRST AND FOREMOST IT’S HURTING THE PEOPLE THAT NEED THE HOUSING MOST LIKE THE SINGLE WOMEN THE RUNAWAY YOUNGSTERS AND EVERYBODY ELSE IT SEEMS TO FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS CONVENTIONAL RECOVERY. I MYSELF A MEMBER OF DDA HAD A HEAD INJURY TWO YEARS AGO. IT’S ONLY BY THE GRACE OF YESHUA HOW MUCH SHE DID I’M UP HERE ABLE TO SPEAK HALFWAY COHERENT WITH YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAY IS THAT IN SPITE OF YOUR INTENTIONS. SIT AND LIE IS WRONG BECAUSE IT HURTS THE PEOPLE THAT NEED IT MOST TO PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY DISABLED. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I’M A GREAT GRATEFULLY RECOVERING ADDICT. I YIELD THE REST OF MY TIME. THANK KOREAN CALL I’M >>HERE TONIGHT TO ASK THE COUNCIL TO VOTE DOWN PROPOSED ORDINANCE 10 19 IF NOT IN WHOLE AT LEAST THE PORTION OF THAT THAT IS REGARDING TO THE STATEWIDE QUESTION TODAY. >>THE CITIZENS OF SALEM HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO SEE THE RESULTS OF THE MAYOR’S HOMELESS TASK FORCE WHICH INCLUDED SUGGESTIONS SUCH AS PUBLIC RESTROOMS AND SHOWERS EXTENDED HOURS. TODAY CENTERS AND STORAGE FOR PERSONAL BELONGINGS. IT IS SIMPLY TOO EARLY TO ESCALATE TO TICKETING PEOPLE FOR SIMPLY EXISTING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. THESE ARE OUR NEIGHBORS. WE ALREADY >>HAVE LAWS ON THE BOOKS RELATING TO DISORDERLY AND DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR AND THE POLICE SHOULD ENFORCE THOSE AND POLICE ARE ALSO ABLE TO DO WELFARE CHECKS ON PEOPLE THAT THEY’RE CONCERNED THAT THEY’RE LYING ON THE GROUND THERE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PUBLIC INTOXICATION LAWS IN ORDER FOR THEM TO ASSIST THOSE INDIVIDUALS >>WITH REGARDS TO BELL’S V. BOISE IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT IN BOISE SLEEPING IN PUBLIC IS PART >>OF THE DISORDERLY CONDUCT LAW. IT IS NOT THAT WAY HERE IN SALEM. LARGELY THIS CASE HAS TO DO WITH ENCAMPMENTS AND BREAKING UP ENCAMPMENTS AND NOT ALLOWING PEOPLE TO SLEEP IN PUBLIC. THE CITY OF SALEM DOES STATE. OUR ORDINANCE IS SIMPLY A CIVIL MATTER. HOWEVER THEY DO NOT DISCUSS THE FACT THAT THIS CIVIL FINE AND FEE CAN QUICKLY ESCALATE INTO A CRIMINAL MATTER BECAUSE ONCE THEY ARE TOLD NOT TO BE IN THAT AREA THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO RETURN AND CAN BE ARRESTED FOR TRESPASS AND THEN. AND THIS MAKES THIS CIVIL FINE BECOME A CRIMINAL MATTER THAT PEOPLE HAVE TO DEAL WITH AND I’D LIKE >>TO DRAW ATTENTION TO LAST WEEK’S MEETING WHEN EVERYBODY TALKED ABOUT WHO THEY NEEDED TO TALK TO. NO ONE SAID THEY NEEDED TO TALK TO THE PEOPLE WHO THIS ORDINANCE WILL AFFECT THE MOST I REALLY >>HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU WILL LISTEN AND WAY MORE THE VOICES OF OUR HOMELESS NEIGHBORS THAN ANYONE HERE WHO GETS TO GO HOME AND SLEEP IN A WARM BED TONIGHT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. SCOTT RUSSELL. DEVIN I’M SORRY DEVIN MY >>NAME IS DEVIN MCHENRY A SECOND YEAR LAW STUDENT AT WILLAMETTE UNIVERSITY. BEFORE I CAME TO LAW SCHOOL I WAS A SOCIAL WORKER. I WORKED IN DRUG AND ALCOHOL REHABILITATION PRISON REENTRY AND AS A CONCERNED CITIZEN. WE SHOULDN’T BE TREATING A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS THE SOLUTION TO IT SHOULD NOT BE ALIENATION AND CRIMINALIZATION. MPERIENCE IN MY WORK IS THATTHE OPPOSITE OF ADDICTION IS NOT SOBRIETY THE OPPOSITE OF ADDICTION IS CONNECTION. AND THIS POLICY THAT MATTER IT’S NOT SOLVING ANY SOLUTION >>AS FAR AS THE LAW GOES I WAS WITH THE GROUP THAT SUBMITTED A PAPER TO THE CITY STATING THAT WE BELIEVE THE SIT LIE ORDINANCE IS UNLAWFUL THE PRESIDENT FOR MARION COUNTY >>IS NOT PERKINS THE PRESIDENT IS ROBESON OREGON VERSUS ROBESON A 2005 COURT OF APPEALS CASE. AND PREEMPTION. SO THIS THE SIT LIVE FROM MULTNOMAH COUNTY WAS PREEMPTED A LOCAL ORDINANCES TO CONFLICT WITH STATE CRIMINAL LAW IF IT PROHIBITS CONDUCT THAT THE STATE STATUTE PERMITS OR PERMITS CONDUCT THAT THE STATE STATUTE PROHIBITS. AND WHAT’S IMPORTANT ABOUT THAT ANALYSIS IS THAT THEY LOOKED AT THE LEGISLATIVE INTENT AND LEGISLATIVE HISTORY AND THEY RECOGNIZE THAT THE OREGON STATE LEGISLATURE WAS AIMING TO BALANCE THE FIRST AMENDMENT OR ARTICLE 1 SECTION 8 OF THE OREGON CONSTITUTION WITH DISORDERLY CONDUCT ALL RIGHT. AND SO ANY CONDUCT THAT ORI OR S.. 1 6 6 POINT 0 2 5 >>ALLOWS PERMITS THAT A >>CITY OR LOCAL ORDINANCES TRYING TO PROHIBIT IT CONFLICTS. AND AS WAS JUST DISCUSSED WHEN YOU’RE TAKING A CIVIL VIOLATION WHEN YOU HAVEN’T EVEN SAID WHAT THE CIVIL VIOLATION IS AND THEN YOU’RE PUTTING AN EXCLUSION ON IT IN CERTAIN AREAS WITH A CRIMINAL CHARGE YOU’RE YOU’RE YOU’RE REALLY PRESSING UP AGAINST THE FIRST AMENDMENT. FIRST OF ALL AND IT’S ALREADY BEEN HELD BY OREGON COURT OF APPEALS THAT THESE SORT OF ORDINANCES ARE PREEMPTED BY STATE LAW. AND AND FURTHER PERKINS SHOWED US THAT YOU CAN SAY IT’S ABOUT COMMUNITY VITALITY BUT THAT THAT DOESN’T CHANGE ANYTHING IT’S ABOUT WHAT IS THE STATUTE PROHIBITING AND WHAT IS PERMITTED AND WHAT IS THE LOCAL ORDINANCE TRYING TO ADDRESS. AND WITH THAT THAT’S ALL I HAVE. THANK >>YOU MR. ANDERSON. THANK YOU MR. MCHENRY I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU NOW. I’M THINKING I WILL THANK EVERYBODY WHO TESTIFIED BUT I’VE GOT A QUESTION FOR YOU WHICH IS I HAPPEN TO BE A WYER SO I READ THE MATERIALS THAT SUBMITTED AND THE CASE IS JUST YOU HAVE JUST ABOUT. THEY WERE IN THOSE MATERIALS. YES. THANK YOU. YEAH OK. SCOTT RUSSELL FOLLOWED BY FRANKIE RIGHT AND THEN HOLLYOAKS MILLER I AM OPPOSED TO THE SUIT WHILE BEING NERVOUS AT LAW YOU’RE TRYING TO PASS. I WAS HOMELESS FOR FIVE YEARS. I WALKED ENDLESSLY USUALLY WITH A BACKPACK HIKING THROUGH SAY I’M IN SURVIVAL MODE TO VARIOUS FEEDS WHICH I’M SO GRATEFUL FOR? >>IT IS EXHAUSTING LIVING OUTSIDE AND CARRYING YOUR STUFF ALL DAY. I WAS ALWAYS TIRED ON SEVERAL LEVELS AND OFTEN JUST WANTED TO REST. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REST AS NEEDED BUT SIT LIE WOULD REMOVE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR OTHERS TO REST AS NEEDED. AS I REFLECT ON MY PAST FROM A SHELTERED PERSPECTIVE I CONCLUDED THAT SIT LIE TARGETS PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS AND TRYING TO LIVE IN PUBLIC SPACES >>SIT >>LIE IGNORES THE FACT THAT CNN HAS LIMITED DAY SHELTER FOR PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS ESPECIALLY WOMEN >>SIT LIE IGNORES THE FACT THAT MANY BUSINESSES TAKE UP SIDEWALKS BASE FOR TABLES CHAIRS AND UNSIGHTLY SIGNAGE. YET EXPECT PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS TO GIVE UP THEIR SPACE ON THE SIDEWALK AND EVEN WHEN THEY ARE NOT BEING DISRUPTIVE. AND WE EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE NO REASONABLE ALTERNATIVE SITTING LIFE SETS UP THE EXPECTATION THAT POLICE ARE THE ANSWER SIN LIES A PUBLIC POLICY FAILURE >>NONE OF THE BEHAVIORS THAT THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY FINDS MOST PROLEMATIC IN SALEM CAN BE ADDRESSED WITH AN ORDINANCE THAT REGULATES SITTING OR LYING ON THE SIDEWALKS SOME OF THESE BEHAVIORS CAN BE ADDRESSED BY EXISTING LAWS AGAINST HARASSMENT INTIMIDATION OR DISORDERLY CONDUCT. HOWEVER SOME OTHE PROBLEMATIC BEHAVIORS CANNOT BE ADDRESSED BY LAWS ORDINANCES AT ALL. ON CANNOT. ONE CANNOT MAKE IT ILLEGAL FOR PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCE A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS OR FOR CERTAIN GROUPS PEOPLE TO CONGREGATE TOGETHER IN PUBLIC AND ONE CANNOT MAKE IT ILLEGAL FOR PEOPLE TO ACT RUDELY OR ANNOYINGLY USING PEOPLE USING POLICE TO MOVE PEOPLE FROM THE SIDEWALKS AND OUT OF THE SPECIFIED BUSINESS DISTRICT TO DISTRICT ZONES IS NOT AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO SOLVE HOMELESSNESS OR TO ALLEVIATE SOCIAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH HOMELESSNESS. IT RESULTS IN INCREASING PENALTIES FINES AND POTENTIAL IMPRISONMENT THAT MAKE IT HARDER FOR PEOPLE TO GET JOBS AND HOUSING IT ALSO INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD OF CONFLICT BETWEEN POLICE AND PEOPLE EXPERIENCING MENTAL HEALTH CRISES FAR MORE EFFECTIVE WAY TO ADDRESS HOMELESSNESS WOULD BE TO INCREASE PUBLIC RESOURCES FOR HOUSING AND MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT. THANK >>YOU VERY MUCH SCOTT. THANK YOU. BY CONNIE. YES. I’VE BEEN WAITING MY TURN BY OK. COME ON UP CONNIE I APOLOGIZE.

THIS CASE IS FREQUENTLY CITED AS AN EXAMPLE OF THE RIGHT OF HOMELESS PEOPLE TO EXIST IN PUBLIC SPACES. WHY THEN SHOULD WE SPEND RESOURCES ENFORCING A >>LAW THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DEEMED UNCONSTITUTIONAL HERE IN OUR OWN STATE ACCESS TO PUBLIC SPACE IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE RESPONSE TO THE PRESENCE OF A CRITICALLY UNDERSERVED POPULATION ATTEMPTING TO SURVIVE THE ELEMENTS WITHOUT ADEQUATE RESOURCES PUSHING >>STRUGGLING PEOPLE OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE USING AN ORDINANCE THAT HAS NO CONSTITUTIONAL BACKING >>IS AT BEST A SHORT SIGHTED WASTE OF RESOURCES.

THANK YOU I YIELD MY TIME. THANK YOU. AH. HOLLYOAKS >>MILLER FOLLOWED BY LA NOW WILCOX AND KATHY RANDALL MY NAME IS HOLLY. NO MY PARTNER GARY MILLER AND I HAVE LIVED IN SALEM FOR 15 YEARS AND WE ARE MEMBERS OF THE SALEM DEMOCRATIC ASSOCIATES OF AMERICA. WE RECENTLY READ AN ARTICLE IN THE L.A. TIMES TITLED WE DON’T PROTECTION FROM THE HOMELESS THEY NEED PROTECTION FROM US. THIS IS TRUE AND APPLIES HERE IN SALEM AS WELL INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON SOLUTIONS TO END HOUSE LISTENERS IN OUR COMMUNITY. THE CITY CONTINUES TO CATER TO A RELATIVELY SMALL NUMBER OF RESIDENTS AND BUSINESS OWNERS WHO REGULARLY HAD CONTACT WITH DOWNTOWN HASLAM’S FOLKS. >>THESE ARE MATERIALLY PRIVILEGED FOLKS WANT OUR E AS NEIGHBORS TO BE OUT OF SIGHT AND THEREFORE OUT OF MIND SO THEY CAN DO BUSINESS AS USUAL WITHOUT HAVING TO FACE THE REALITIES OF LIVING IN A SOCIETY BASED ON CAPITALISM WHERE THE PROFIT OF THE FEW IS PRIORITIZED OVER THE COMMON GOOD OF THE MANY. AS WE HAVE ALL LEARNED SIT LIE AS CURRENTLY OUTLINED BY THE CITY WILL BE USED AS A TOOL TO FURTHER TERRORIZE AND ALREADY ALIENATE THE DISENFRANCHISED AND DEHUMANIZED POPULATION OF VULNERABLE PEOPLE WHO ARE OUR NEIGHBORS HERE IN SALEM THIS IS MORALLY WRONG AND UNACCEPTABLE. WE WOULD LIKE TO REMIND THE CITY THAT OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE IN THIS WAY AS AN APPROACH TO SOLVING COMMUNITY PROBLEMS HAS A REAL WORLD CONSEQUENCES. VIOLENCE AGAINST THE HOUSES IS CURRENTLY ON THE RISE IN THE COUNTRY AND IN OUR STATE >>ANYONE LOOKING FOR AN EASY TARGET ONLY HAS TO LOOK TO THE POPULATION THAT THE CITY CLEARLY WANTS TO DISAPPEAR >>IF OUR CITY LEADERS ARE NOT BRAVE ENOUGH TO COME UP WITH THE REAL SOLUTIONS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THAT OUR HOUSES COMMUNITY MEMBERS CANNOT THEN THEY SHOULD STEP DOWN. SO LEADERS WHO WILL DO THIS WORK CAN THE CITY HAS ACCESS TO A WIDE NETWORK OF GROUPS THAT CAN AND WILL SOLVE THE ISSUES AROUND HOUSES MISS WHAT LEADERS LACK IS ABOUT TO FIND OR CREATE THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO FUND THESE REAL SOLUTIONS. THANK >>YOU. LYNELL WILCOX AND THEN KATHY >>RANDALL FOLLOWED BY HAZEL PATTON HI MY NAME’S LYNELL WILCOX AND I’M HERE KIND TO HATS MY OWN AND ALSO A MEMBER OF THE HOMELESS COALITION WHEN THE HOMELESS COALITION FOUND OUT THAT CITY LIFE BEING RECONSIDER THEY WANTED TO COLLECT INPUT AND WRITE LETTERS SO THIS MORNING I DELIVERED THREE HUNDRED EIGHTY FIVE LETTERS TO THE CITY RECORDER’S OFFICE THAT WE’VE COLLECTED I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE KIND OF MINIMIZE LETTERS BUT IF THEIR FORM LETTERS BUT I WANTED TO SPEAK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE WHEN WE FIRST >>WE’RE GOING OUT TO GET INPUT? WE DIDN’T WANT IT TO BE ADVOCATE SAYING WHAT HOMELESS PEOPLE THINK. SO WE WENT OUT AND I WENT OUT WITH NOTEBOOKS AND PENS AND SAID HEY WRITE STUFF AND I DIDN’T REALIZE THAT LIVING IN SURVIVAL MODE LEANING OVER ON A CURB TRYING TO WRITE SOMETHING REALLY ISN’T LIKE THE BEST MOST CONDUCIVE WAY TO HAVE YOUR THOUGHTS FLOW. >>SO THEN WE WENT OUT AND TALKED TO EVERYBODY AND GOT INPUT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN BEFORE WE EVEN CREATED THE FORM LETTER. AND SO WE WERE WE’RE REALLY CONFIDENT THAT THE FORM LETTER BAYS CONCERNS AND REALITIES THAT HAPPEN TO PEOPLE WHEN THEY’RE LIVING ON THE STREETS AND THE CONCERNS THAT THEY HAVE AND HOW THIS WOULD PLAY OUT IN THEIR LIVES THEIR HEARTS THEIR RECORDS THEIR ARRESTS THEIR WARRANTS THEIR EVERYTHING. SO THEN WE WENT OU AND HAD PEOPLE SIGN IT AND WE WERE TALKING >>TO PEOPLE AND TELLING THEM >>YOU NEED TO READ THIS. WE JUST DON’T WANT YOU TO SIGN IT. IF SOMEBODY DIDN’T SEEM LIKE THEY UNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS HAPPENING I WOULDN’T EVEN TAKE THEIR LETTER I WRITE I TAKE IT AND NOT COUNT IT. SO JUST WANTING TO I KNOW YOU GUYS WOULD PROBABLY HAVE THIS IN YOUR POCKETS BUT JUST WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THE PROCESS SO THAT IT DOESN’T GET MINIMIZED IT’S JUST A LETTER THAT WAS PUT IN FRONT OF PEOPLE TO JUST HEY SIGN HERE. SO THEN KIND OF JUST SWITCHING HATS BECAUSE THERE IS THERE IS A REPORT AND IT TALKS ABOUT HOW MANY PEOPLE SHELTERED ON SHELTER TO BREAK DOWN A PIE CHART AND THEN SOME A LOT OF THE COMMENTS WERE TRANSCRIBED JUST FOR LEGIBILITY AND FOR RELEVANCE BUT THIS CHANGING >>HACKS A TTLE BIT. IT’S THE ACLU >>HAS SAID THAT HAVING LOSING A PLACE TO LIVE DOESN’T >>LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO SHARE PUBLIC SPACE AND DIFFERENT LEGAL DECISIONS. I’M NOT A LAWYER BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THERE’S LEGAL BASIS FOR THAT >>THE CONCERNS OUTLINED IN THE LETTERS ARE THE SAME CONCERNS YOU’RE HEARING OVER AGAIN I’D WANT TO JUST FOCUS ON THAT. A LOT OF US REALLY WE HAVE A COMMON GROUND. WE WANT SIDEWALKS TO BE CLEAR AND SAFE. THERE’S A LOT OF COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES HAPPENING THAT ARE REALLY EFFECTIVE AND I WOULD LOVE TO TALK TO BUSINESSES ABOUT MORE WAYS TO IMPLEMENT THAT. THANK >>YOU LYNELL CATHY RANDALL AND CATHY RANDALL. I’VE BEEN KNOWN IN OUR COMMUNITY AS ACTIVISTS DEFINITELY ANY THERE’S >>A STACK I WANT YOU ALL TO CONSIDER FOR EVERY >>HOMELESS PERSON OUT THERE. THERE ARE 11 EMPTY >>VACANT HOMES EVERY SINGLE HOMELESS >>PERSON SHOULD NOT BE HOMELESS THIS >>DAD HOLDS TRUE ACROSS THE COUNTRY NOW. UNTIL RECENTLY I WAS HOMELESS FOR TWO AND A HALF YEARS. IT’S NOT BAND FOLKS. THIS IS REAL STUFF. AND THERE THERE’S CAUSE TO A LOT OF THE HOMELESSNESS HERE IN SAGO. AND THAT’S BECAUSE OF OU OF TOWN PEOPLE COMING IN >>AND INVESTING IN PROPERTY THAT THEY DON’T TAKE CARE OF. THEY DON’T SPEND IT. THEY DON’T READ IT. THEY DON’T DO ANYTHING. THEY JUST HAVE IT FOR AN INVESTMENT PURPOSE OR TO HIGH FUNDS TO THAT. ANOTHER THING THEY DO BUT THIS HOMELESS SITUATION CAN HAVE A CURE AND THESE HOMES CAN BE CONVERTED IF NOT THEY’RE ALREADY READY TO BE MOVED INTO FOR THE HOMELESS. AND THIS COULD HELP A LOT TO PROVIDE RELIEF FOR BELEAGUERED ST. I UNDERSTAND THEIR PLIGHT. I TOO WAS A SMALL >>BUSINESS OWNER FOR 30 YEARS AND >>I OWED ALSO >>HAD THREE DEGREES ONE OF THEM IS PRETTY LOW. WHICH WAS MY FAVORITE AND I’VE WORKED WITH EVEN PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA PERSONALLY AND WITH MICHELLE OF COURSE DEFINITELY WORK WITH HER. BUT THIS NEGLECT PROPERTIES SHOULD BE FINE. THESE OWNERS SHOULD BE FINED OR THEIR PROPERTY CONFISCATED AND WITH MINIMAL REHAB PUT THESE HOMELESS FAMILIES. I SEE HOMELESS FAMILIES ALL THE TIME THE MOTHER THE FATHER OF THE TWO KIDS THE DOG THAT THEY TRIED TO KEEP AND THEY WERE FORECLOSED ON. THIS CAN HAVE BEEN HAPPENING BUT HERE’S MY THING. I WANT TO SAY TO YOU KATHY I’M SORRY YOUR TIME’S OK. YOU WANT TO SAY IS THIS A DRACONIAN PROPOSAL. AND I WANT TO SAY TO YOU ALL THANK YOU CAPTORS >>DO YOU HAVE ANY SHAME HAVE YOU ANY SHAME. THANK YOU HAZEL PATTON. DANA VICTOR BEANS THAT TRASH YOU. THANK YOU MAYOR AND COUNCILLORS I’M A PROPERTY OWNER DOWNTOWN AND I’M ALSO REPRESENTING SAY ON MAIN STREET ASSOCIATION.

I’LL BET YOU YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT THIS IS THIS IS WHAT REPRESENT YOU. THIS IS WHA REPRESENTS SALEM. IF YOU HAVE SOMEBODY COMING TO VISIT YOU DON’T YOU TAKE THEM DOWNTOWN. DON’T YOU WANT TO SHOW OFF YOUR DOWNTOWN IF YOU’RE AN EMPLOYEE THAT YOU’RE GOING TO BRING SOMEONE IN AND HOPE TO HIRE DON’T YOU TAKE THEM DOWNTOWN AND SAY THIS IS OUR COMMUNITY. THIS IS THE HEART OF WHO WE ARE OUR COMMUNITY IS JUDGED BY HOW WE SUPPORT AND PROMOTE AND CARE FOR OUR DOWNTOWN THE LEADING LINE OF SALE ON MAIN STREET ASSOCIATION’S MISSION STATEMENT IS TO ADVOCATE FOR AND BE ON BEHALF OF OUR DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES PROPERTY OWNERS AND RESIDENTS A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO WE DID A SURVEY WE DID AN E-MAIL SURVEY AND I’M GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT THE RESPONSE WERE IN THEIR WORDS I’VE MOVED HOMELESS MEN OFF MY OFFICE DOORSTEP BEFORE I COULD OPEN MY BUSINESS PERSONALLY HAVING TO CLEAN UP URINE AND FECES ON MY ENTRY EVERYDAY ELEVEN >>THOUSAND DOLLARS IN DAMAGE IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS WE HAD CAMPERS IN OUR FOUR YEAR PEEING LITTERING DEFECATING AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR AND UNSANITARY MESSES LEFT AT R DOORSTEP. NO ONE NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO CLEAN UP SOMEBODY ELSE’S WASTE AND TRASH EVERY MORNING. NO ONE SHOULD AND THEY SHOULDN’T HAVE TO ENDURE EXPENSE REPAIRS BECAUSE THEY CHOSE TO PUT THEIR BUSINESS DOWNTOWN ONE OF THE FOUR QUESTIONS IN OUR SURVEY ALSO ASK WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT NEW RESOURCES OR PROGRAMS TO SPECIFICALLY DEAL WITH THE ISSUE OF HOMELESSNESS.

I STAND HERE IN SUPPORT SIT LIE ORDINANCE AS ONE OF MANY TOOLS TO ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES THAT FACE US ALL IN SALEM WITH DEALING WITH THE ON HOWS AND BEHAVIORAL ISSUES THAT WE SEE IN DOWNTOWN WITHOUT THE INVESTMENTS OF FOLKS THAT ARE BRINGING NEW BUSINESS INTO TOWN THE TAX BASE WILL NOT GROW AND YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RESOURCES TO BE ADDRESSED. ALL THE OTHER ISSUES SUCH AS HOUSING FIRST AND SOCIAL SERVICES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. THANK YOU DANA. ZACH TRASH GOOD EVENING. I’M A DIRECTOR OF THE MINISTRY IN WEST SALEM CALLED CITY VIBE AND WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH HOMELESS PEOPLE IN WEST SALEM FOR OVER NINE YEARS NOW AND I GOT TO COME DOWNE LAST WEEK AND LISTEN TO THE HEART OF THE PEOPLE IS FROM ALL DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES OF HOW YOU GUYS WANT TO WORK WITH HOMELESSNESS. AND YOU KNOW EVERYBODY’S HEART IS IN THE RIGHT PLACE BUT I THINK WE’RE IN THE WRONG WAY GOING ABOUT IT. FROM OUR >>STANDPOINT FROM A FROM A NON HOMELESS PERSON STANDPOINT THE CITY THE ORDINANCE OF THE CITY LIE MAKES SENSE BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT FROM A HOMELESS PERSON STANDPOIT UNFORTUNATELY THEY DO NOT THINK LIKE WE DO. AND TO THEM IT IS JUST A FORM OF BULLYING YOE BULLYING THEM WHICH THIS BULLYING ACTUALLY INCREASES ANXIETY AND THEN INCREASES VIOLENCE TO GO WITH THAT FOR MY OPINION >>THIS IS MORE OF A ONE DIMENSIONAL APPROACH. THAT PUSHES THE INDIVIDUALS AROUND AND ARE CONSIDERED THE INDIVIDUTHAT ARE CONSIDERED UNDESIRABLE. WE NEED TO FORM AN ORDINANCE THAT DEALS WITH AND HELP SOLVE THE HOMELESS ISSUE. WE NEED TO OK AT THE CORE OF WHY WHAT HOMELESS WHAT IS CAUSING HOMELESSNESS WHETHER I MEAN I GOT SIX OF THEM WRITTEN DOWN BUT THERE ARE SO MANY MORE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE MENTAL DISABILITY PHYSICAL DISABILITY SPIRITUAL DYSFUNCTION PAST CRIMINAL HISTORY ADDICTIONS. IF WE DON’T DEAL WITH THOSE AND HELP PEOPLE GET PAST THOSE WE’RE GOING TO JUST INCREASE THE HOMELESSNESS AND INCREASE THE PROBLEM. SO IN MY OPINION WE SHOULD BE GOING BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD AND LOOKING AT A DEEP WAY TO DEAL WITH ALL OF THIS. I MEAN WE ALL WANTED THE SAME ISSUE. WE WANT THE HOMELESSNESS TO END BUT WE WANT TO DO IT IN A IN A HUMANE WAY IN A HUMANE WAY THIS IS AN ISSUE ABOUT HUMANITY AND ALLOWING THESE PEOPLE TO CONTINUE TO LIVE IN HOMELESSNESS IS ACTUALLY A FORM OF INHUMANITY AND WE NEED TO COME UP WITH THE BETTER SOLUTION. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

THE QUESTION IS WHAT IS THE BASIS FOR THE EXCLUSION. IS IT BEHAVIOR. IS IT A PARENT’S. IS IT SOME OTHER CRITERION. I RECOMMENDATION FROM MEN TO THE SAME CITY COUNCIL IS TO NOT PASS ORDINANCE 10 19. PERHAPS RECONSIDER IT. AND SOME CHANGES GUIDED SAY INGESTION THROUGHOUT OUR TEXT AFTER CLEARLY ANSWERING THE BASIC QUESTION ABOVE. UNSCOM ACTIONS HAS NOW EVALUATED AND ADMINISTER THE VARIETIES THAT EVALUATE TOOL TO OVER SEVEN THOUSAND PEOPLE OVER 500 OF THEM HARMLESS AS WELL AS THE STRUGGLE TO FIND OUR CANNABIS BEST OPTIONS. I HOPE WE WILL FIND WAYS TO CO-OPT PLEDING WITH EACH OTHER AND NOT BECOME ADVERSARIAL WHEN WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER? THANK YOU DE LA TOM YOU WANT. THANK YOU MISS >>BRITTON. STAY THERE. I’VE GOT A QUESTION. I’M WONDERING IF >>YOU COULD TELL WHERE NED IS THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATES SIT IN REON TO THE DOWNTOWN OF SALEM. WE NEXT CAN DO. WE’RE JUST WEST OF NASCAR >>WELL I MIGHT HAVE TO AND CAN’T DO A NASCAR. I’M INTERESTED IN HERE’S DOWNTOWN WHEREAS NED IS 10 MILES FROM DOWNTOWN. IS IT 10 FEET FROM DOWNTOWN. WELL >>PROBABLY NEITHER. I’D SAY WE’RE WITHIN A MILE OF COUNSELLING CASEY. WOULD YOU AGREE. YEAH. YEAH. ONE MILE LA MEISNER >>GLENDALE DAILY I ENJOY MA AND STEVEN LOT. YES >>GOOD EVENING. I’M LAURA MEISNER AND I BECAME EDUCATED ABOUT HOW A MORE EDUCATED I SHOULD SAY ABOUT HOMELESSNESS IN MY ORGANIZATION. IN CONJUNCTION WITH SEVERAL OTHERS HOSTED A VACCINATION CLINIC AT ARCHES FOR THE PETS OF HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS. SEEING THE CARE AND CONCERN FOR THEIR PETS AND HAVING CONVERSATIONS WITH THEM MADE ME REALIZE WE ARE NOT DOING ENOUGH. AFTER ALL STRAY DOGS IN OUR COMMUNITY ARE TAKEN TO A SHELTER FED AND KEPT WARM >>WE SINCE WE ARE UNABLE TO BUILD ENOUGH AFFORDABLE PERMANENT HOUSING IMMEELY. HOW CAN WE PASS AN ORDINANCE THAT IN ESSENCE PERSECUTES PEOPLE FOR BEING POOR AND UNABLE TO HOUSE THEMSELVES >>I UNDERSTAND THAT BUSINESSES IN THE DOWNTOWN SHOPPING DISTRICT DONT WANT THEM SLEEPING IN THEIR DOORWAYS. HOWEVER THEY HAVE TO BE ALLOWED TO SLEEP. SO WHERE SO WHY NOT IN THE ARCHES AREA WHERE THEY HAVE ACCESS TO SOCIAL SERVICES TOILETS AND SOON SHOWERS I THINK IT’S INHUMANE AND IMMORAL TO BAN PEOPLE FROM PUBLIC SPACES. WE HAVE TO HAVE A SAFE SPACE FOR PEOPLE TO LIVE. INSTEAD >>OF PASSING THIS INHUMANE ORDINANCE WHY DOESN’T EVERYBODY IN THIS ROOM GO AND VOLUNTEER AND THAT INCLUDES THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL AND OUR WARMING NTERS THIS WINTER SO THAT WE CAN OPEN ALL THEM AND HAVE SAFE AND ONE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE HOMELESS THANK YOU >>GLENN BAILEY MY NAME IS GLENN BECK I AM A RESIDENT OF SOUTH SALEM I AM OPPOSED TO THE SUPPLY ORDINANCE WE AS WE’VE HEARD FROM MANY OTHER PEOPLE WE NEED TO BE WORKING ON SOLUTIONS NOT WASTING OUR TIME ON INHUMANE ORDINANCES THAT NOT ONLY PERSECUTE POOR PEOPLE. THE PERSECUTE POOR PEOPLE WE DON’T HAVE THE SAFE PLACES AS WE’VE HEARD FOR YOU KNOW A SUBSIDIZED HOUSING BUT WE ALSO DON’T EVEN HAVE SAFE PLACES FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY LIVING IN THEIR CARS. MAOF THESE PEOPLE AS WE’VE HEARD STORIES ABOUT ARE ACTUALLY HAVE JOBS BUT THEY CAN’T AFFORD THE RENT. WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE SUPPOSED TO GO I THINK IT’S IMMORAL TO KEEP CHASING THE HOMELESS OUT OF PUBLIC SPACES. WE CALL OURSELVES A YOU MEAN NATION BUT INSTEAD OF OFFERING A HELPING HAND WE TELL THE HOMELESS TO BASICALLY GO AWAY. ANYONE WHO’S VOLUNTEERED AT THE WARMING SHELTERS ARE TOLD EVERY GUEST SHOULD BE TREATED WITH THE UTMOST RESPECT DURING EVERY INTERACTION. RESPECT IS NOT EARNED. IT IS EXPECTED LET’S BE RESPECTFUL AUMANE AND NOT PASS THIS ORDINANCE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. ENJOY BELMORE GOOD EVENING EVERYONE. MAYOR AND COUNCIL MY NAME IS ANGEL GILMORE. I WAS ORIGINALLY BORN IN SOUTH FLORIDA. LET’S SEE THE BOY SCOUTS OUT HERE. USED TO BE A BOY SCOUT BECAME AN EAGLE SCOUT AND I WAS ALSO SEA SCOUT WHICH MANY HAVE NOT HEARD OF RECENTLY ABOUT TO ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO I GOT IT. 2017 I WAS HIT BY A CAR. MY BACKGROUND IS IN SALES MARKETING AND 20 YEARS AS A ELECTRICIAN CAN’T DO THAT WORK RIGHT NOW. I AM VERY. I’M ONE OF THE VERY FORTUNATE THAT JUST RECENTLY GOT HOUSING TO THE H RAP PROGRAM THAT SALEM HOUSING AUTHORITY HAS I GUESS IT’S PART OF WHAT THEY CALL THE FIRST START UP SORRY FOR BRAIN DAMAGE FIRST. HOUSING FIRST. YES. SO SO I’M GLAD TO HEAR THOSE PROPERTIES ARE BEING BOUGHT OR THEY’RE DOING REBUILDING IN THEM AND MAKING THEM INTO HOUSING AND I BELIEVE THAT SHOULD CONTINUE. ARE THE HOUSING FIRST PROGRAM IS NOW ON THIS PLANET. IT’S GOT A 10 OVER A 10 YEAR HISTORY IN MAINLY STARTING IN FINLAND PROBABLY WHERE THEY WOULD BUY UP PROPERTIES USE PROPERTIES WERE UNDERUSED USED TO TURN PLACES THAT WERE ONCE COMMERCIAL AND MAKE THEM INTO RESIDENTIAL IF YOU HAVEN’T LOOKED INTO THAT IT’S I BELIEVE YOU SHOULD. FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND THE CITY NEEDS ACE AN ARMY OF SOCIAL WORKERS TO GET OUT THERE FIND THESE PEOPLE IN THE WOODS WHEREVER IT IS AND HELP THEM. GET A HOUSE BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T HAVE MASLOW’S BASE FOUNDATION YOU’RE NOT GONNA GET ANYWHERE. PUTTING PEOPLE IN THE SHELTER THAT DOES LESS AS A BANDAID SOLUTION FOLKS I’M SORRY TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH. I KNOW WE’RE ALL USED TO SHELTER THE WHOLE CONCEPT PAINTING GREEN INNOCENTS. WE WERE KIDS. WE’VE BEEN TOLD ABOUT IT BUT IT REALLY DOESN’T WORK. IT WORKS FOR SOME BUT NOT THE MAJORITY. SO I WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY COMING OUT TONIGHT AND I YES I AM AGAINST THAT. THAT WHOLE COCEPT. THANK YOU ANGEL. PERHAPS THAT’S WHAT THEY NEED. STEPHEN LONG CRAIG AND MARY ANGELA >>ANGELA I’LL NEED YOUR FULL NAME AND JULIE COOPER. I’LL NEED BOTH OF YOU TO TELL ME WHERE YOU LIVE. GO AHEAD. WELL MY NAME IS STEVE LONG AND I LIVE ON COMMERCIAL >>STREET RIGHT ACROSS MARCHES. I’M ONE OF THOSE GUYS WHO SEES THE HOMELESS ON A DAILY BASIS. IN FATHIS MORNING WHEN I GOT UP THERE WERE LIKE 20 CIGARETTE BUTTS RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY DOOR. I’M GOING TO FIX UP THE TRASH AFTER THEY’VE EATEN AT ARCHES ON THE WAY THROUGH. JUST THROW IT DOWN. AND I KNOW WE’VE BROUGHT UP NICE EXAMPLES OF THOSE WHO’VE BEEN SUCCESSFUL COME OUT OF HOMELESSNESS DONE WELL BUT THERE’S MANY MANY WHO DON’T WANT IT. I MEAN WHERE’S THE ACCOUNTABILITY TO THE HOMELESS. I GUESS MY QUESTION WOULD BE HOW MANY OF THE HOMELESS REALLY DON’T WANT TO BE HOMELENYMORE I SEE ALL THESE ORGANIZATIONS CATERING NOW GOING OUT TO THEM. I DON’T SEE THEM GOING TO THESE PLACES I GO TO WORK SOURCE I GO ON CRAIGSLIST I SEE ALL KINDS OF JOBS OUT THERE AND MAYBE I’M BEING OLD FASHIONED BUT MAYBE THE PROBLEM IS THEY’RE JUST NOT WANTING TO WORK. I DON’T KNOW. BUT DO IS >>ANOTHER THING I SEE IS DISPROPORTIONATE AMOUNT OF HOMELESS IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA AS OPPOSED TO LANCASTER. MARKET STREET. EITHER WAY >>THESE BUSINESS THAT NIGHT WHEN I DO MY DELIVERY SERVICE AND I DON’T SEE A LOT OF HOMELESS THERE I SEE THEM NOW CAMPING OUT AT THE ARCHES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BOULEVARD I STILL AM NOT IN THE PARK. SO MY QUESTION WOULD BE WHY CAN’T IT BE IN THE PARK? IF THEY CAN BE OVER HERE IN OUR SITE AND >>CONCERN THERE I’VE BEEN AT A CUSTARD A ACCOSTED BY SOME HOMELESS PEOPLE. NOTHING’S REALLY BROKEN OUT OF HAND BUT WHEN THEY GOT TENTS RIGHT NEXT TO THE PARKING SPACES IN ORDER TO OPEN YOUR DOOR YOU HIT A TENT. YOU’RE JUST ASKING FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN. SO AGAIN I’VE SEEN A MOVE OUT OF THE PARK MARINE PARK WHICH IS CAT KITTY CORNER FROM WHERE I LIVE AND NOW THEY’RE ON THE SIDEWALKS AND NOT JUST IN FRONT OF US ALL THE TIME. SO I’D SAY IF THEY’RE NOT ALLOWED TO BE IN THE STATE BUILDINGS OR IN THE STATE PARK WHY NOT. IT’S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE SHOULD BE GOOR THE GANDER. AND FINALLY THESE LAWS. I’M NOT. I DO WHICH PEOPLE MEAN BY THE LAWS OF PENANG THEM IN THE SENSE THAT IF YOU HAVE A PLACE TO STAY A FRIEND’S HOUSE NOW YOU DON’T QUALIFY HOMELESS. SO SOME WAYS I UNDERSTAND THAT. JUST LIKE WITH WELFARE AND SOME ISSUES THERE AND WE WE WE PENALIZE THEM GO OUT AND GET A JOB AND THEN WE DON’T GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT SO THEY’RE BETTER OFF AND I DON’T KNOW I MEAN I’M NOT EVEN SURE IF I’M FOR OR AGAINST SITTING I JUST KNOW I’M NOT I’M AGAINST THIS CAMPING ISSUE. GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO OUR RESIDENCE I SEE SOMETHING’S GONNA YIELD MY TIME. THANK YOU VERY MUCH ANGELA OK. JULIE COOPER PASHTUNS SHE COUNT NO I’M SORRY >>OH IS SHE COMING. OH GREAT. OKAY THANK YOU. BEHIND BEHIND JULIE IS >>MARK HANKY TOM HOFFERT SARAH PARKINSON SO JULIE YES MY NAME’S JULIE COOPER I’M TRYING TO REMEMBER WHAT YOU SAID YOU NEEDED FROM US EARLIER SOMETHING ABOUT WHAT YOU NEEDED TO KNOW. CAN YOU GIVE AN AB DRESCHER AWARD WILLIAM YOU L DOWNTOWN DOWNTOWN. YES I MEAN SIX FEET TALL WHY YOU’RE AWARD WHAT SIX 615 >>COMMERCIAL STRAIGHT SOUTH EAST. YEAH BASICALLY THESE ARCHES AS OUR ADDRESS. OK. IT’S BASIY HAD >>BEEN WANTING TO TALK ABOUT YOU KNOW SOME OF THE CONCERNS THAT I HAD BEFORE REALLY HAVE NOT CHANGED BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THEY’VE TOLD US BEFORE THAT IF THEY SEE SOMEONE HAVING YOU KNOW BASICALLY SORT OF A MENTAL KDOWN LIKE AN EXAMPLE I SAW DOWNTOWN ONE DAY A YOUNG MAN JUST SAT DOWN ON THE SIDEWALK WAS LEANING AGAINST THE WALL JUST CRYING HIS EYES OUT >>I >>DON’T KNOW WHO IT WAS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT WAS ABOUT BUT SOMEONE HAD TOLD ME AT ONE POINT WHILE HE WOULD CONSIDER THAT A MEDICAL CRISIS BECAUSE IT’S LIKE A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS YOU KNOW SORT THING AS WELL OK BY A POLICE OFFICER SAYING THAT MIGHT NOT THINK ABOUT THAT THEY MIGHT NOT SEE IT THAT WAY. AND I KNOW THAT POLICE TRAINING IS NOT ALWAYS UNIFORM ACROSS THE BOARD SO YEAH >>IT’S HARD TO SAY THAT WE CAN SEE THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE ENFORCED FAIRLY OR HUMANELY FOR PEOPLE WITH INVISIBLE DISABILITIES AND SUCH MYSELF HAVING BOTH PHYSICAL AND MENTAL AILMENTS SOME OF WHICH I STILL DO NOT KNOW THE SOURCE OF I HAVE MY OWN CONCERNS. YOU OW I HAVE TO STOP AND REST FREQUENTLY AT TIMES. AND MY PTSD IS OFTENTIMES RELATED TO THINGS GOING ON AROUND ME IN TRAFFIC I CAN’T REALLY RELATE MUCH MORE IN DETAIL ABOUT THAT EXCEPT THAT I HIT BY A TRUCK ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO MYSELF. BUT THERE ARE MENTAL YOU KNOW MULTIPLE CONCERNS THAT I HAVE WITH THAT AND ALSO WITH THE BASICALLY WITH THE CAMPING BANS BECAUSE I KNOW I SEE PEOPLE SLEEPING ON THE SIDEWALKS ALL THE TIME AND JUST A BLANKET OR A SLEEPING BAG AND I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT. YOU KNOW A ALONE WITHOUT GETTING SICK. YEAH I’M SICK RIGHT NOW MYSELF JUST FROM HAVING BEEN SLEEPING OUT IN THE COLD BEFORE WE GOT OUR TENT AND YEAH I DON’T SEE TOO MANY TENTS ACTUALLY BLOCKING SIDEWALKS LATELY I’VE SEEN LIKE ONE OVER BY WHERE WE ARE BY ARCHES AND SOMEONE WHOM WE’VE ASKED THE GUY TO MOVE A FEW TIMES. WE DON’T KNOW IF HE’S GOING TO. THANK YOU VERY MUCH JULIE THANKS. MARK HANKY TOM OFFER GOOD >>EVENING MAYOR >>COUNCIL THANKS SO MUCH I AM MARCIE I PASTORSALEM FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH.

BECAUSE I DON’T THINK ANYONE EVER GETS ADDRESSED OR CHANGED IN MASS. I AM TERRIBLY CONCERNED WITH WHAT WE ALLOW TO HAVE HAPPENED DOWNTOWN TO AND SO I WANT TO ISOLATE THIS. THERE’S THERE’S A HUGE ISSUE WE HIRE PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON ALL THE TIME THAT’S WHAT NORTH BLOCK IS ABOUT. WE INVEST HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS INTO THIS. D BY THE WAY WHATEVER DECISION YOU WE’LL BE THERE TOMORROW MORNING STILL DOING THE SAME THING. HOWEVER IT IS UNSAFE TO ALLOW >>URBAN CAMPING AT THE RATE AND IN THE RANGE THAT WE DO IT IS WRONG IN IT DOES NOT HELP THEM LOVE SACRIFICE >>AND ACCOUNTABILITY ON A BREAKDOWN BASIS HELPS THEM MASS AREAS >>LIKE THIS. IT DOESN’T. YES I’VE HAD A KNIFE PULLED ON ME IN THE RECENT WEEKS WE FOUND A GUN ON OUR PLAYGROUND BUT IT’S JUST THE ISSUE OF WHAT CAN HAPPEN >>IN THAT MASS. THERE’S NOT SANITARY ISSUES DEVELOPED. THERE >>ARE PROBLEMS SOME PEOPLE BEING SHOVED OUT INTO THE STREET. SO ABSOLUTELY I’M ALL FOR HELPING >>THE COMMUNITY I LOVE SOME OF THE IDEAS BUT LET’S TAKE A STEP ALLOWING >>WHAT WE’RE ALLOWING IS DANGEROUS FOR THOSE WHO ARE DOWNTOWN. THEY NEED PLACE. BUT WHAT WE’RE ALLOWING IS DANGEROUS AND IT’S WRONG THANK YOU MARK. TOM HOFFERT FOLLOWED BY SARAH PARKINSON FOLLOWBY >>LARRY. I INK MARCY GOOD EVENING COUNCILORS >>AND MAYOR BENNETT THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. MY NAME IS TOM HOFFERT. NICE SERVICE CEO OF THE SALEM CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. WE REPRESENT A THOUSAND BUSINESSES IN OUR CITY AND 40000 EMPLOYEES FOLLOWING THE NANNIES SUPPORT OF OUR PUBLIC POLICY COMMITTEE. OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS TOOK A UNANIMOUS POSITION OF SUPPORT FOR THE SIDEWALK AND PUBLIC SPACES ORDINANCE YOU’RE CONSIDERING TONIGHT THE SALEM COMMUNITY BUSINESS COMMUNITY IS NOT ONLY COMPASSIONATE ABOUT THE ISSUES FACING OUR COMMUNITY WHO ARE HOMELESS COMMUNITY BUT >>WE’RE ENGAGED IN ASSISTING IN THIS COMPLEX COORDINATION REQUIRED TO FIND SOLUTIONS AND PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE NEEDED SERVICES. THERE IS CLEAR UNDERSTANDING AMONGST THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY THAT THIS ORDINANCE WILL NOT >>SOLVE AND IS NOT THE MAGIC BULLET TO SOLVING THE COMMUNITY’S HOMELESS CRISIS BUT IT IS A FIRST STEP IN ADDRESSING SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT OUR DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES LARGELY ARE FACING VOCAL >>AND URGENT MESSAGING HAS BEEN HEARD BY THE SALEM CHAMBER BY THE DOWNTOWN ASSOCIATION MAIN STREET ASSOCIATION AND I CERTAINLY KNOW BY US COUNSELORS AND THE MAYOR’S OFFICE THE SALEM CHAMBER HAS BEEN INVOLVED EACH STEP OF THE WAY IN THE PUBLIC FORUMS IN FACT HOSTING SUCH FS WE BELIEVE THOUGHTFUL DIALOGUE. WE WAT TO HEAR FROM THE SERVICE PROVIDERS AND WE’VE BEEN PRESENT IN THOSE DISCUSSIONS. WE WANT TO PAR WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AND WE WANT TO ASSIST OUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS ON THE STREETS. SALEM BUSINESSES ARE ACTIVELY SUPPORTING OUR HOMELESS SERVICE PROVIDER ORGANIZATIONS NOTABLY OUR PARTNERSHIPS WITH COMMUNITY ACTION AID AGENCY ARTISTS PROJECT UNION GOSPEL MISSION AND THERE’S SMOKE A HOUSE FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN SHELTER NORTHWEST HUMAN SERVICES HOPE PROJECT AND MANY INITIATIVES BY THE UNITED WAY. THE CHAMBER’S POSITION AS SUPPORT FOR THE ORDINANCE ACKNOWLEDGES THE SECURITY AND SAFETY THAT IS ESSENTIAL FOR OUR EMPLOYEES BUSINESS OWNERS AND CUSTOMERS THAT ARE PATRONS OF DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES. WE HOPE TO >>REMAIN A GREAT PARTNER AND KNOW THAT WE WILL WORK WITH ALL THESE ORGANIZATIONS REGARDLESS OF OUTCOME. BUT WE HAVE DEEP CONCERNS AND WE HOPE YOU TAKE THIS FIRST STEP IN ADDRESSING THE ISSUES THAT OUR DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES ARE FACING. THANK YOU ACT COUNCILLOR LEWIS TOM >>THANKS FOR COMING DOWN. YOU KNOW SOMETHING IS BEEN EATING AT ME AND IT REALLY CAME CLEAR TONIGHT IF WE’RE GOING TO ATTEMPT AT ALL TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE HOMELESS ISSUE AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO ERADICATE IT IT’S NOT POSSIBLE BUT IT’S GOING TO TAKE MONEAND I JUST DON’T BELIEVE THE CITY GOVENT HAS THE STOMACH TO GO AFTER THE MONEY. BUT THE UNITY CAN SO MY QUESTION TO >>YOU IS WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO TAKE IT UP WITH YOUR BOARD ABOUT WORKING WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS AND BRINGING FORWARD A BOND MEASURE THAT WE COULD HAVE THE MONEY TO DO ALL THE OTHER THINGS THAT ARE THOSE WE NEED TO DO. COUNCIL IS FOR ONE >>THING I WOULD ALWAYS BE CAREFUL NOT TO SPEAK FOR OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS ON DIRECTION BUT THIS ORGANIZATION TIME AND TIME AGAIN HAVE STEPPED IN SUPPORT OF EFFORTS FOR PUBLIC SAFETY INCLUDING OUR SUPPORT OF THE POLICE BOND MEASURE AND HAS A VERY TRANSPARENT AND DEEP BELIEF IN THE IMPORTANCE OF HOW THIS COMMUNITY DEVELOPS AND THRIVES. AND SO I WILL DEFINITELY TAKE THAT CHALLENGE FORWARD. IF THE COUNCIL WOULD LIKE ME TO DO SO AND I KNOW IF YOU LOOK AT THE LEADERS AROUND THAT TABLE AND THE HUNDREDS OF BUSINESSES THAT ARE IN CONTACT WITH OUR ORGANIZATION EACH DAY WE WANT TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION AND WE TAKE THOSE CHALLENGES VERY SERIOUSLY AND I WOULDN’T SPEAK FOR THE BOARD CONVERSATION WILL DEFINITELY OCCUR. THANK YOU THANK YOU. SARAH PARKS PAXTON EVENING I’VE BECOME REALLY PROUD OF MY COMMUNITY THIS EVENING. THERE’S A WHOLE LOT OF HEART IN THIS ROOM AND I THINK WE MISSED SOMETHING AS WE STARTED THIS EVENING I WANT TO WELCOME YOU SCOUTS TO YOUR GOVERN I THINK WE MISS THE STAFF BOTH DIDN’T WE SHALL WE. ON MY OWN. YES. THANK YOU. GOD MY COUNTRY. IT’S VERY SAD. KEEP MYSELF PHYSICALLY STRONG. IT’S A MORE INDUSTRY. SO ABOUT THAT. SCOUT LAW. TRUSTWORTHY LOYAL. OH HERE IT IS. BE CAREFUL VERY VERY EARLY IN THERE. AS A 71 OLD SCOUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT WE HAVEN’T DONE MY GENERATION HASN’T DONE A WHOLE LOT IN A WHOLE LOT OF WAYS AND I THINK YOU PROBABLY ARE AERY MORE AWARE OF IT THAN A LOT OF PEOPLE SITTING HERE. BE CAREFUL WITH THAT OBEDIENT. I DON’T THINK THERE’S A LOT OF US GEEZERS THAT HAVE ANY RIGHT TO TELL YOU THAT SOME POINT THAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO TAKE. WHAT OBEDIENT LOOKS LIKE? AND THERE’S THAT PART ABOUT HELPING OTHER PEOPLE AT ALL TIMES. THANK THANK YOU LARRY MASSEY. THANK YOU MR. MAYOR. THE COUNCIL I REALIZE WHAT I’M GOING TO SAY IS SIMPLIFIED. BUT I DON’T THINK IT’S OVERSIMPLIFIED. THERE’S NO QUESTION THAT INSURING AND IMPROVING CONDITIONS TO HELP MERCHANTS AND OTHER BUSINESSES OF DOWNTOWN TO THRIVE IS IMPORTANT TO ALL OF SALEM. THE QUESTION IS WILL REPORTED HER PROPOSED ORDINANCE DO THIS OR WILL IT MAKE THE SITUATION WORSE. AS HAS BEEN POINTED OUT IN NUMEROUS ARTICLES AND ONLINE POSTS OVER THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS THE OUTCOMES OF THESE ORDINANCES IS VERY MUCH A MIXED BAG. THERE IS NO CONVINCING EVIDENCE THAT THEY HAVE HELPED CITIES THRIVE IN MANY MANY CASES UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES MAKING THE SITUATION WORSE EVERYTHING FROM EXPENSIVE >>LEGAL BATTLES INCREASED MEDICAL COSTS OVERLOADED POLICE COURTS AND JAILS TO COMMUNITIES TORN APART BY TRYING TO LEGISLATE THEMSELVES OUT OF A SOCIAL MORAL AND HUMANITARIAN CRISIS THE HOMELESS AREN’T GOING ANYWHERE THEY HAVE NO PLACE TO GO AND THOSE LIVING ON THE STREETS INCLUDE THE MOST DAMAGED AND VULNERABLE. ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THEY’RE OUT IN THE OPEN DOWNTOWN IS THAT IT KEEPS THEM SAFE IF THEY’RE FORCED INTO MORE OUT OF THE WAY LESS OPEN AREAS THEY WILL BECOME PREY AND THEY WILL BE PREYED UPON PERSON TO PERSON CRIME >>AGAINST THEM SUCH AS ASSAULTS ROBBERIES AND RAPES WILL INCREASE THESE CRIMES WILL GO UNREPORTED BECAUSE OF FEAR OF REPRISAL BUT THEY WIL OCCUR WHEN IT COMES TIME TO VOTE ON THIS ORDINANCE. THE QUESTION THAT YOU MR. MAYOR AND CH OF YOU COUNCILLORS NEED TO ASK YOURSELVES IS NOT WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE AND WHAT ARE THEY DOING BUT RATHER WHO AM I. AND WHAT AM I DOING. THANK YOU. THANK >>YOU. MIKE HERRON AARON SHARPENING ANGELINA LOCKHART THANK >>YOU MR. MAYOR COUNCIL MEMBERS AND CITY STAFF. MY NAME IS MIKE KAREN AND I’M HERE ON BEHALF OF PHIPPS INDUSTRIES TO SUPPORT THE OSED ORDINANCE. ITS INDUSTRIES HAS A 50 YEAR HISTORY IN DOWNTOWN SALEM CURRENTLY. OPERATORS OF THE GRAND HOTEL FELIZ GRILL AND MANAGER OF THE SALEM CONVENTION CENTER. BETWEEN THOSE THREE ORGANIZATIONS WE SEE TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND PEOPLE VISITORS COME INTO DOWNTOWN SALEM EACH YEAR. MANY OF THOVISITORS ARE HERE FOR THEIR FIRST AND SOMETIMES ONLY TIME ON BEHALF >>OF THOSE 275 THOUSAND VISITORS AND 170 EMPLOYEES THAT WE HAVE IN THE CITY SALEM. WE SUPPORT THE ORDINANCE FOR BOTH FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF ALL OF THOSE AND WE STRONGLY URGE THE CITY COUNCIL TO ADOPT THE ORDINANCE. T YOU VERY MUCH AARON HANK AARON SMOKING MARIJUANA. ANGELA ANGELINA LOCKHART HI >>I’M ANGELINA AND MANY OF YOU ALREADY KNOW ME. LAST >>YEAR WHEN I MET YOU I WAS HOMELESS FROM FEBRUARY UNTIL LATE JULY. I WAS LIVING IN A HOTEL ROOM AS HARD AS I TRY TO COULD GET HELP FROM OUT OF MY SITUATION FROM ANY OF THE ORGANIZATIONS IN SALEM. I SPENT MY DAYS BEGGING FOR MONEY AND MY NIGHTS WONDERING IF I WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET ENOUGH TO KEEP A ROOF OVER MY HEAD THE NEXT NIGHT I STARTED VOLUNTEERING WORKING FOR SHELL I SAW A PRIOR CAMPAIGN IN MAY KNOCKING INDOORS WHILE I WASN’T BEGGING FOR MONEY. I WOULD EXPLAIN TO HER I TRIED TO GET HELP FROM EVERY ORGANIZATION TO SEE AMELIA AND HAD NO LUCK. THE SHELTERS WERE NOT AN OPTION FOR ME SINCE I DID NOT HAVE CHILDREN AND I ALAD ANIMALS SHELTERS ARE ALSO KNOWN TO NOT BE SAFE PLACES TO GO. THE OTHER REASON I GOT OFF THE STREETS IS BECAUSE I GOT HELP FROM A PRIVATE PERSON. MANY PEOPLE ARE NOT AS LUCKY AS I AM. MANY HAVE TO STAY ON THE STREETS WHERE THEY ARE CONTINUALLY HARASSED BY THE POLICE. PEOPLE ARE TOLD TO PACK UP IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES GRAB EVERYTHING THEY OWN OR FACE ARREST AND HAVE THEIR STEPPED ON THAT TRASH. WE’RE HERE BECAUSE RICH REPUBLICANS THAT OWN MOST OF DOWNTOWN A PROBLEM WITH SEEING HOMELESS PEOPLE NEAR THEM INSTEAD OF TRYING TO FIND SOLUTIONS THAT HELP THEM WE ARE HERE TO DISCUSS SOMETHING THAT WOULD HARM THE HOMELESS AND OFFER NO REAL SOLUTIONS. WHAT ARE YOU GUYS GOING TO STOP TRYING TO CRIMINALIZE A HOMELESS POPULATION INSTEAD OF TRYING TO HELP THEM. I ASKED LAST YEAR TO BE A PART OF THE NEW HOMELESS COALITION TO HELP TRY TO FIND SOLUTIONS AND I WAS NEVER CONTACTED. NO ONE HAS EVER CONTACTED NO ONE WAS EVONTACTED TO BE A PART OF THE GROUP. CAN’T YOU PUT ON A MEETING THAT WAS ATTENDED BY EVERYONE WHO TRIES TO HELP THE HOMELESS FROM ALMOST EVERY SINGLE ORGANIZATION IN SALEM AREA AND WAS NOT ATTENDED BY A SINGLE PERSON FROM THE CITY OF ST.. SAVING COUNCIL AND IT WAS ONLY A PROTECTED BY ONE PERSON FROM THE GOVERNMENT THAT BARELY HAD ANY ANSWERS. IF MANY OF YOU KNOW ME IF I AM GOING TO TAKE THE TIME OUT OF MY DAY TO RAISE MONEY FOR A CAMPAIGN WHEN I’M HOMELESS I WILL CAMPAII WILL KNOCK >>DOORS FOR YOUR OPPONENT BECAUSE THIS IS A SINGLE ISSUE IF YOU DON’T HAVE A HEART TO HELP THE HOMELESS. THE PEOPLE ARE THAT ARE MO DOWN ON THEIR LUCK THEN I DON’T HAVE A HEART FOR YOU. I WILL HELP YOU GET YOU VOTED OUT. YOU DON’T DESERVE YOUR POSITION. YOU SHOULD STEP DOWN. THANK SHALLOW SWAT CRYER >>IS NOT YOUR SHE’S NOT HERE. OH OK. GERONIMO. TARGET DOC THEN KATHLEEN THARP THEN TREVOR PHILLIPS. CAN YOU HEAR ME. YEAH. GOOD I’M GERONIMO TAGGART. I’VE LIVED IN SALEM FOR 30 YEARS. I’M A VETERAN AND I HAVE EXPERIENCE HOMELESSNESS. AND I’M ASKING THE COUNCIL NOT TO APPROVE THE SIT LIE ORDINANCE. IT’S LITTLE MORE THAN A WAY OF HIDING A PROBLEM AND CRIMINALIZING AN ALREADY BURDENED GROUP. PEOPLE AT THIS TIME OF THANKSGIVING IT’S IRONIC THAT THE CITY SHOULD SEEK TO PUNISH PEOPLE WITHOUT SHELTER. THIS IS A TIME FOR COMPASSION RATHERTHAN CALLOUSNESS. THANK YOU. THANK THANK >>YOU VERY MUCH. BECKY GILLIAM. FOLLOWED BY KATHLEEN THORPE FOLLOWED BY TREVOR PHILLIPS GOOD EVENING MR. MAYOR AND COUNCIL NAMES THAT KEEP GILLIAM I WORK FOR THE SAFE ROUTES PARTNERSHIP.

WE BELIEVE THAT PUBLIC SPACES ARE MEANT FOR ALL OF OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS >>ESPECIALLY OUR MOST VULNERABLE WHO ARE LIVING OUTDOORS. SO I WANT TO THANK YOU. AND WE CANNOT SUPPORT THIS ORDINANCE MAY ASK THAT YOU DO NOT EITHER. THANK YOU KATHLEEN THORP THANK YOU. WE’RE GOING TO TURN ON A POWERPOINT FOR YOU SO YOU CAN GET SOME ENTERTAINMENT. I’D LIKE TO THINK COUNCILLOR KEYSER AND CHRISTIAN RUTHERFORD FOR ALL OF THE TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF THEY’VE DONE ON THIS ISSUE. THE COMMUNITY THE SLIDES I’M NOT SURE WHERE THE BUTTON IS TO MAKE THIS THING GO? GIVE YOU WE’LL GIVE YOU A MINUTE TO GET ORIENTED. LET’S NOT TIME HER UNTIL SHE STARTS THEY HAVEN’T BEEN THAT’D MAKE A DIFFERENCE. OKAY I THINK I MIGHT THANK YOU. IT’S HOT UP HERE. THIS IS >>CALLED THE TRAGEDY OF THE HOMELESS. BASICALLY OUR COMMUNITY FEELS LIKE IT’S UNDER SIEGE. PEOPLE WHO LIVE WORK AND DONE WORK AND LIVE IN DOWNTOWN IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA DON’T FEEL SAFE. THEY’RE NOT KNOWING WHICH HOMELESS PEOPLE MAY CAUSE THEM SOME DANGER. OUR HOMELESS ARE FEELING WORTHLESS WITH LITTLE TO NO DIGNITY AND ARE HOMELESS FEEL SAFER DOWNTOWN THIS IS TRICKY BUSINESS THERE ARE A LOT OF SHOUTS TO TAKE THE HOMELESS PEOPLE AWAY THE USE OF PUBLIC LAND WHEN PERCEIVED TO BE NEVE. EXTRA ANALOGIES EXIST WHERE CAN OUR HOMELESS GO SALEM IS NOT ALONE. CITIES THROUGHOUT THE US ARE EXPERIENCE SEEING AN INCREASE IN PEOPLE WITHOUT HOMES WHO ARE IN CONTRACTING WITH FELLOW CITIZENS IN THE COMMONS AND THE AREAS THAT WE SHARE. THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT STATISTICS SHOWED NEARLY 554 THOUSAND HOMELESS PEOPLE ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN 2008 17 WHERE DID THE HOMELESS GO THE HOMELESS TWO ARE DRAWN TO THE COMMENTS THEY SEE IT IS A LIVING SPACE WHICH INCLUDES SPENDING DAYLIGHT HOURS SOCIALIZING RESTING READING SLEEPING ENTERTAINING THEMSELVES RELIEVING BODILY FUNCTIONS. NOW SINCE THE LATEST FLASH IN REALLY YELLOW IN FRONT OF ME I’M GOING TO TAKE IT BY THE TITLES ALONE. WE SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH BEDS OR MENTAL HEALTH CARE. THE HOMELESS >>ARE OUR NEIGHBORS THE HOMELESS POPULATION CONSISTS OF VERY DIFFERENT KINDS OF PEOPLE MANY NEED SOCIAL SERVICES AND ASSISTANCE. BUT WHAT ABOUT SUPPLY LIE. WE MUST FIGURE OUT HOW TO ENSURE THEIR RIGHTS WHILE PRESERVING THE SANCTITY OF THE COMMONS CAN THE CITY OF SALEM WORK WITH THE PARTNERS IN THE COMMY TO COME UP WITH VIABLE SOLUTIONS THE CHAMBER HAS VERY ELOQUENTLY SPOKEN OF THE DIFFICULTIES IN THE MEANTIME OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS WE HAD AN 86 YEAR OLD HOMELESS WOMAN LIVING ON OUR STREETS SIT LIE IS A SOLUTION FOR NOTHING UNTIL THERE IS A PLACE THANK YOU. THANK YOU. COUNCILLOR LEO. CAN YOU MOVE THE SLIDE >>BACK WHEN I WANTED TO READ ABOUT THAT 86 YEAR OLD >>ELDERLY WOMAN. THIS GO FORWARD TO ALL RIGHT. THIS IS >>NERVE WRACKING BUSINESS. IS >>THAT PERSON STILL AT SMOKO PLACE OR AT THE MOMENT I DON’T KNOW. WE WERE ABLE TO GET HER A BUNK IN SOME MONKEY. THANK YOU GREAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH TREVOR PHILLIPS. HARVEY GERVASE MAX HELLO MY >>NAME IS TREVOR PHILLIPS. I’M AN 11 YEAR RESIDENT IN WARD 3. I’M A LICENSED PHYSICIAN BOARD CERTIFIED IN EMERGENCY MEDICINE I WORKED IN THE SALEM HOSPITAL EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT FOR THE PAST 11 YEARS IN 2018. I SERVED ON THE DOWNTOWN HOMELESS SOLUTIONS TASK FORCE >>AS WE KNOW HOW IT’S LOOSENESS AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING. WE’RE RECENTLY IDENTIFIED AS THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE FACING SALEM. I APPRECIATE THE COUNTLESS HOURS OF WORK DONE BY OUR FELLOW COMMUNITY MEMBERS. SALEM CITY COUNCIL AND CITY STAFF BUT I THINK WE ALL AGREE THAT MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE. AS ADOCTOR I AM HERE TONIGHT TO ENCOURAGE THAT THE CITY COUNCIL FIRST DO NO HARM WHILE WORKING TO DO MORE I >>AM HERE TO TESTIFY IN OPPOSITION TO THE ORDINANCES AS ORIGINALLY PROPOSED ESPECIALLY THE SIT LIE PORTION IT CREATE AN UNEVEN ENFORCEMENT ISSUE ACROSS SALEM THAT WILL LIKELY DISPLACE OUR SALEM COMMUNITY MEMBERS ARE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS >>AND WILL ENCOURAGE THEM TO MOVE FURTHER FROM THE ESSENTIAL SERVICES THAT THEY NEED THE VERY SERVICES THAT WILL HELP THEM BREAK THE CYCLE OF HOMELESSNESS IN ADDITION TO WORKING IN THE BUSY BUSIEST AND ARGUABLY THE BEST E.R. IN OREGON I’VE SEEN THE IMPACT OF HOMELESSNESS OUTSIDE OF THE EMERGENCY ROOM AS WELL. THERE ARE REAL ISSUES FACING DOWNTOWN BUSINESS OWNERS AND SHOPPERS WHICH IS WHY WE NEED TO ADOPT A TARGETED APPROACH. THE CITY OF SALEM SHOULD ENSURE THAT WE ENACT ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS MADE BY THE HOMELESS SOLUTIONS TASK FORCE. I APPRECIATE THAT WORK IS ONGOING AS IMMERSES PROVIDER. I REALLY APPRECIATE THE VOICES OF OUR FIRST RESPONDERS LIKE OUR OUTSTANDING SALEM POLICE DEPARTMENT WHO WORK WITH THE HOMELESSNESS THEY >>SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED AND I AGREE THAT WE SHOULD PRIORITIZE NUMBER ONE FUNDING THE SOBERING CENTER NUMBER TWO PROVIDING SAFE SECURE STORAGE RESTROOMS AND SHOWER FACILITIES AND 3 CREATING A 24 HOUR FACILITY OR NAVIGATION CENTER TO CONNECT SALEM RESIDENTS EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS WITH SERVICES PROVIDERS THEY NEED. I CANNOT STATE ENOUGH HOW COMPLEX AND MULTIFACTORIAL >>THIS ISSUE IS. THERE ARE NO EASY ANSWERS IT WILL REQUIRE >>ALL OF US OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY AND ALL THE STAKEHOLDERS TO FULLY ADDRESS IT >>BUT I AM HERE TONIGHT TO ENSURE THAT AT THAT WE AT SALEM CONTINUE TO >>FIRST DO NO HARM. WHILE WORKING TO DO MORE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH DOCTOR HARVEY HARVEY. GOOD. THANKS >>HARVEY. GURLITT LET US THANK YOU. YEAH. I LIVE ACROSS THE STREET FROM ARCHES. I’M A TENANT APARTMENT THERE AND THIS IS JUST HEARTBREAKING. THE WHOLE THING. IT’S GOING TO COST US ALL. IT IS COSTING US ALL AND WHILE I IT PAINS ME TO SAY I I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN. ARE WE GONNA BE BACK HERE IN 2 3 MONTHS AND GO WOW WE SHOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING. THERE ARE NO EASY ANSWERS ON THIS BUT IT IS NOT SAFE. AND I’M ONE THAT LIVES THERE. I SEE IT EVERY DAY. MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT ARE LIVING ON THE SIDEWALKS ARE JUST LIKE ME THEY’RE JUST TRYING TO GET BY AND IT’S HORE. BUT THEN AGAIN THERE’S A LOT OF VIOLENT BEHAVIOR CONSTANTLY. IT’S NOT SAFE. I AGREE WITH PASTOR FROM FIRST BAPTIST. IT’S EXPLOSION IT’S EXPLODING. WE’RE TRYING >>TO OUTRUN A TIDAL WAVE HERE. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? I GUESS WE ALL GOT TO CHIP IN WE GOT TO DO SOMETHING. MAYBE SALEM COULD BE THE FIRST PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY THAT DOES SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I DON’T KNOW SO I GOT TO SAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH. T.J. >>SULLIVAN AND BOY CHAUCER HOLMES HOLMES CAN’T MAKE UP FIRST NAME I APOLOGIZE. CHELSEA COULD BE MR. MAYOR COUNCILLOR. MY NAME IS T.J. SULLIVAN I LIVE IN WARD 4 BUT I SPEND MOST OF MY CONSCIOUS MOMENTS IN WARD 1 >>I SUPPORT THE SIDEWALK BEHAVIOR >>ORDINANCE WITHOUT ANY CHANGES THE ORDINANCE AS IS WRITTEN DOES NOT PENALIZE PEOPLE FOR SITTING OR LYING ANYWHERE IN SALEM DURING THE HOURS THAT ARE SHELTERS AND FACILITIES THAT ARE THERE TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE HOMELESS HAVE THE LEAST AMOUNT OF CAPACITY IT’S ONLY >>DURING THE DAY WHEN THEY HAVE THE MOST CAPACITY IN THE SERVICES THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE ARE OUR HOMELESS OUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS WHO ARE HOMELESS WHEN THEY VE THE MOST CAPACITY THAT’S WHEN THE SIT LIFE PORTION KICKS IN. AND SO FOR THAT I SUPPORT IT. WE’VE HEARD OUR POLICE CHIEF WHO WE ALL HAVE CONFESSED TO A LOT OF RESPECT FOR DISCRETELY ENDORSE ADDING SOME ADDITIONAL PIECES TO THIS TO WHAT THE POLICE CAN UTILIZE A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO I HAD A CHANCE TO GO DOWN TO EUGENE THERE WAS A FIRM THAT WAS THERE THAT WAS ADDRESSING THEIR CITY IT WAS HIRED BY THE CITY OF EUGENE TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR DOWNTOWN THEY WERE EXPERIENCING A LOT OF VACANCY RATES AND THERE REALLY IS NO DEFINED DOWNTOWN IN EUGENE. AND SO I WENT THERE WERE THERE FOR A NTH STUDYING THEIR DOWNTOWN AND I WENT TO WHEN THEY MADE THEIR PRESENTATION TO PICK UP SOME IDEAS TO BRING BACK TO SALEM AND THE PERSON WHO SPOKE SAID LISTEN EVERYTHING WE’RE GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO HELP YOUR DOWNTOWN THRIVE ARE GOING TO BE COMPLETELY NEGATED BECAUSE YOU GUYS HAVE GOT THE WORST HOMELESS PROBLEM WE’VE SEEN ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES AND WE’VE SEEN OUR DOWNTOWN START TO THRIVE. THE POLICIES THAT HAVE BEEN PUT INTO PLACE IN THE LAST 10 15 19 YEARS ARE PAYING DIVIDENDS NOW. OUR HOME OUR DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES CARE ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING. I HAVE A PETITION THAT WAS SIGNED BY ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FIVE DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES AND THEIR EMPLOYEES IN SUPPORT OF THIS ORDINANCE. IT WAS NOT STARTED BY ME IT WASN’T STARTED BY THE CHAMBER WA STARTED BY MAIN STREET IT WAS STARTED BY THE DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES THEMSELVES AND BROUGHT IT TO ME IN AN EFFORT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU TONIGHT. THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY IN THIS TOWN HAS STEPPED UP AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS WE’VE WORKED ON THE METH ISSUE WE’VE WORKED ON THE KIDS WHO NEEDED TO FOSTER HOMES. WE’RE NOW WORKING ON THE COST ISSUE TO GET ENOUGH COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATES SO THAT KIDS WHO ARE IN FOSTER CARE DON’T GET ABUSED THE STATE OF OREGON IS PAID HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY HAS STEPPED UP IN TELLING US THAT IT’S NOT ACCEPTABLE TO US. AND THE REASON WHY IT TIES BATO HOMELESSNESS IS THAT 72 PERCENT OF ALL KIDS WHO ARE IN THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM WHO CATCH THE GAME? THANK YOU. THEY END UP ON THE STREETS. THANK YOU CHELSEA HOLMES TAMI KLEIN AND ANNA KAREN I KNOW WE NEED TO BE BRIEF AND I’LL TRY NOT TO TALK TOO FAST. KATE WHEN >>PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC IN A MATTER SUCH AS ALL OF THIS HAS BEEN KIND OF ALMOST SEEMS PRETTY EASY TO CALL IT IN AND ESPECIALLY >>COMING FROM EVERYONE WHO PROBABLY HASN’T BEEN THEIR FIRST THOUGHT SEEING THE CRISIS UNFOLDING LIVE IN FRONT OF >>YOU IN PLACES WHERE YOU NEVER EXPECTED TO SEE IT MUCH >>LESS IN YOUR OWN TOWN IS PROBABLY PRETTY TRAUMATIC TO MOST. IT IS TO ME AND I’M ONE OF THEM THEN FOR ALL THE OTHERS WHO JUST HEAR AND READ ABOUT IT JUST ENVISIONING THE WHOLE SCENARIO THESE MOST FEELING A SENSE OF DISGUST AND EMBARRASSMENT SAILBOATS >>HOMELESS POPULATION IS GROWING AT AN ALARMING RATE AND >>IN A LARGE PART THAT WAS ALREADY THERE. THERE’S A LARGE PART THAT WAS ALREADY HERE BUT THEY BLENDED BACK INTO THE SHADOWS >>POSSIBLE PLACING IN THE SHADOWS IS WHERE THEY FELT THEY NEEDED TO BE? SO NO >>ONE FELT THIR BURDENS OR THE PRESSURES THAT FORCED INTO THE STREETS IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT’S HOW THEY HIDE THEIR SHAME THEIR SADNESS ILLNESSES DISABILITY THEIR DREAMS AND A LITTLE BIG BIT OF DIGNITY THEY HAVE LEFT IT SEEMS THE CITY IS SALEM THEN BASICALLY DECIDED THAT PEOPLE WITHOUT HOMES REALLY DIDN’T DESERVE TO BE MUCH OF ANYWHERE AND SURELY NOT SEEN LIKE A PUNISHMENT FOR THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES. I WAS A SOMEBODY AND I ENDED UP OUT HERE BECAUSE MY LANDLORD HAD A PILL >>PROBLEM HE USED ON MY RENT FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS TO FUND HIS HIS ADDICTION. HE WASN’T PAYING HIS TAXES WAS’T PAYING HIS PAYMENTS. IT TAKES NEARLY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS MINIMUM TO MOVE INTO SOMETHING SOMETHING THAT MOST OF US JUST DON’T HAVE LAYING AROUND SO THE POINT IS THIS HOMELESSNESS CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE AT ANY TIME DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE A BAD PERSON A LOSER OR A WORTHLESS SITUATION AND PANIC FORCED PEOPLE INTO MAKING TRAGIC CHOICES THAT AREN’T ALWAYS RIHT OR SAFE BUT WE DO THE BEST WE CAN. IT’S SCARY FOR US TO SAY HOME HAS FAILED ITS CITIZENS AND THIS IS THE RESULT BY NOT GAINING CONTROL SOONER OVER HOUSING ISSUES DISHONEST GREEDY LANDLORDS AND STALE SUBSTANTIATED AND OUTRAGEOUS RENT INCREASES APPLICATION FEES AND DEPOSITS. THEN THE CITY DESTROYS THE HOMELESS CAMPS. PUNISHING PEOPLE FOR JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE AN THINK TANK THINKING THEY WOULD JUST GO AWY AND LEAVE FOR SOMEWHERE ELSE BUT INSTEAD IT WAS IT FORCED HIM TO MOVE CLOSER >>TO THE RESOURCES THEY WERE STRIPPED OF AND OUT INTO THE OPEN TRYING TO REBUILD YET AGAIN FROM NOTHING AND LITTLE HELP WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THE CITY TURNS HER BACK ON YOU? NO ONE’S LISTENING WHEN THE COMMUNITY YOU YOU’VE DEDICATED YOUR LIFE TO TREAT YOU LOWER THAN A RAT AND IT’S NOTHING WHEN YOU WORK HARD. THANK YOU VERY MUCH HATRED. SORRY. TIME’S UP. THANK YOU.

MY NAME’S ANTHONY TURLEY FINANCIAL REPORTING MANAGER FOR THE CITY OF SALEM. HERE TO DO A PRESENTATION ON THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE TOURISM PROMOTION AREA SO STAFF WORK COLLABORATIVELY WITH THE LODGING ASSOCIATION AND WITH THE CITY COUNCIL. WHEN THE DEVELOP THIS ORDINANCE TO PRODUCE OR TO CREATE A SORRY PROMOTION AREA WAS ENACTED UNDER ORDINANCE OR OREGON REVISED STATUTE TO 23 FOR AN ECONOMIC IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT THE PURPOSE OF THE DISTRICT IS TO PROVIDE TOURISM PROMOTION IN THE SALEM REGION. THE TOURISM PROMOTION AGENCY WHICH WE USE WHICH IS CURRENTLY TRAVEL SALEM WILL USE THE FUNDS TO PROMOTE TOURISM AND OVERNIGHT STAYS IN THE AREA. SO ESTIMATED THAT THE NEW 2 PERCENT FEE WOULD GENERATE APPROXIMATELY 900000 IN NEW REVENUE TO BE USED FOR TOURISM PROMOTION AND THE CITY WOULD MAKE WOULD WE RETAIN A 5 PERCENT OF THOSE REVENUES FOR THE ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS. I’M OPEN FOR ANY QUESTIONS AMONG THE STAFF. THANK YOU VERY MUCH TROY ALIVE. FIRST TAKE TESTIMONY FROM SCOTT SNYDER GOOD >>EVENING MAYOR AND CITY COUNCILLORS SCOTT SNYDER AND MANAGE THE GRAND HOTEL DOWNTOWN SALEM AS WELL AS THE CHAIR FOR THE SALEM MERRY LODGING ASSOCIATION I AM SPEAKING IN SUPPORT OF THIS ORDINANCE. THE ONE TRUE TOURISM PROMOTION AREA GRANTING HOTELS MOTELS AND BED AND BREAKFASTS THE ABILITY TO ASSESS THE 2 PERCENT FEE ON OVERNIGHT STAYS THAT CURRENTLY QUALIFY FOR TRT COLLECTIONS THIS FEE WILL ALLOW THE LODGING ASSOCIATION WORKING IN CONJUNCTION GRAVEL SALEM TO TARGET MARKETING TO OUR REGION SPECIFIC LEE FOR SHOULDER SEASON BUSINESS. I’D LIKE TO THANK COUNCILLOR HOY FOR HIS LEADERSHIP IN GUIDING US THROUGH THE PARK PROCESS WITH THE CITY STAFF AS WELL AS COUNCILLOR ANDERSON FOR HELPING TO ENCOURAGE THE LODGING ASSOCIATION TO FIND A WAY THAT WE CAN HELP MAKE THIS TOURISM SUCCESSFUL IMPACT ON OUR HAVE A CULTURAL FACILITIES AS WELL IN THAT VEIN I’VEGOT SEVERAL HOTELIERS HERE IN ATTENDANCE AS WELL AS ROGER WITH THE WILLAMETTE HERE LIMIT CULTURAL CENTRE SUPPORTING >>THIS THIS MEASURE. THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT MORE MONEY TO PROMOTE HOTELS. THE BENEFITS OF A HEALTHY TOURISM INDUSTRY ARE WELL-DOCUMENTED. QUALITY OF LIFE FOR RESIDENTS AS RESIDENTS ARE ENHANCED WITH SUCCESSFUL RESTAURANTS >>LOCAL SHOPS GETTING TO ENJOY THAT OUT OF TOWN MONEY BEING INJECTED INTO OUR ECONOMY. IT ALSO BENEFITS JOB CREATION FOR COUNTLESS INDUSTRIES THAT ARE SUPPORTED BY THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY AND THAT ALSO HAVE EQUAL IMPORTANCE TO OUR COMMUNITY. HOWEVER THE PRIMARY MEASUREMENT AND OBJECTIVE WILL BE SEEING THE TOTI REVENUE INCREASE IN THE FUTURE AS THESE EFFORTS TAKE ROOT AND AND START TO HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE OCCUPANCY RATES AND THE REVENUES THAT THE HOTELS ARE GENERATING FOR THE TRT THAT MONEY WILL ALLOW. THIS 70 75 PERCENT ALLOCATION THAT THE CITY HAS TO INVEST AS THEY SEE FIT. I AM JOINED BY AS I MENTIONED SEVERAL OF OUR FELLOW HOTELIERS AND CULTURAL RESENT REPRESENTATIVES SHARING THE JUBILATION FOR HAVING THIS PROCESS COME TO FRUITION. WE STARTED THIS JOURNEY OVER 18 MONTHS AGO AND WE ARE ANXIOUS TO GET STARTED AND HAVE EVERY INTENTION OF HITTING THE GROUND RUNNING AND WE ASKOR YOUR AFFIRMATION I’M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. COUNCILLOR ANDERSON THANK YOU VERY >>MUCH. COMING DOWN MR SNYDER AND THANK YOU AND YOUR BOARD FOR ALL THE HARD WORK THEY’VE DONE AI WAS PLEASED >>TO HEAR YOU SAY THAT SOMEONE WAS HERE FROM CALAMITY. WHILE I AM INHERITED CENTRE SORRY ITWILL LIMIT OUR CITY. I SAID SORRY. YES I RECOGNISE THE HE WASN’T SURE WHERE HE WAS FROM THAT INTO A SENTENCE IN A PREPOSITION FROM WHERE HE WAS? >>AND IS GOOD BECAUSE I’M CERTAINLY HOPING THATTHIS I KNOW THERE’S BEEN SOME TIMES THERE’S SOME CONFUSION BETWEEN THE HEADS IN THE BED FOLKS AND THE CULTURAL >>FOLKS AND STAFF REPORT HERE WAS NOT QUITE CLEAR ENOUGH TO ME TO SEE THE CULTURAL FOLKS WERE INCLUDED IN THIS AND THAT’S WHAT I UNDERSTOOD TO BE THE BE THE EFFECT OF THIS THAT THE FOLKS WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THE CULTURAL TOURISM INDUSTRIES AS WELL ASTURAL LOCAL AND INDUSTRY ARE ARE IN SUPPORT OF THIS WHICH IS ANOTHER GOOD THING FOR THE AUDIENCE AND FOR CITY OF SALEM AND ALL ASPECTS OF IT. THAT’S CORRECT YES THANK YOU. CANCER. CANCER. THANK >>YOU I APPRECIATE YOU BEING HERE ANDON BEHALF OF ALL THE OTHER HOTELIERS IN THE WILLAMETTE HERITAGE CENTRE >>I TOO I’M SUPPORTIVE OF THIS MEASURE AND I’D LIKE TO HEAR YOU SPEAK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE TYPES OF JOBS THAT ARE POSITIVELY IMPACTED BY SOMETHING SUCH AS A TOURISM PROMOTIONAL AREA. WELL BY THE TOURISM >>INDUSTRY GENERALLY THEY’RE A LOT OF SUPPORT FACILITIES SO RESTAURANT SES OUT OF TOWN JUST DON’T HAVE KITCHEN IN MOST HOTEL ROOMS SO THEY ARE EATING OUT. WE THERE THEY’RE ATTENDING PLAYS THERE THEY’RE ENJOYING THE CULTURAL ASPECTS OF OUR COMMUNITY. THEY’RE YOU KNOW SHOPPING IN OR HOPEFULLY IN OUR LOCAL SHOPS. BUT YOU KNOW ALL OVER THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY THERE THEY’RE OUT THERE AND THE PRIMARY EFFORT TRAVELS SALEM IS FUNDED 25 PERCENT OF THE TOTY TO MARKET INSIDE THE CITY OF SALEM WHICH IS GREAT. THAT’S THE BREAD AND BUTTER OR THE YOU KNOW IN THIS TOURISM PROMOTION AREA GIVES US MORE OF AN ABILITY TO PROMOTE THE AREA SO THAT WE CAN USE TO THIS THIS FEE TO PROMOTE WOOL IN THE ENTIRE WILLAMETTE VALLEY RATHER THAN JUSTINSIDE THE CITY LIMITS SO IT’S REALLY NOT JUST ABOUT MORE MONEY FOR THE HOTELS AND PROMOTING IT’S REALLY ABOUT BRINGING MORE PEOPLE TO THIS AS THE HUB OF THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY. WE’RE UNIQUELY SITUATED BEING AN HOUR FROM THE OCEAN HOUR FROM THE MOUNTAINS AN HOUR FROM PORTLAND PEOPLE CAN BE IN SALEM AND DO ALL THESE DAY TRIPS AND COME BACK HERE AND STAY IN AND SPEND THEIR MONEY IN SALEM AS WELL. COUNCILLOR LEWIS YEAH >>SCOTT IT’S BEEN IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME THEY’VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS IN I’M VERY SATISFIED THAT WE’RE HERE TONIGHT TO PROVE THIS BUT I DID HAVE A QUESTION AND MAYBE IT’S IN THE REPORT WAITING AND SEE THE EXTRA 2 PERCENT IS AN ADDITIONAL 2 PERCENT WHAT WILL THAT BRING THE OCCUPANCY TAX TO? WELL IT DOESN’T IMPACT THE OCCUPANCY TAX THE 9 PERCENT TO T IS STILL THERE. THAT’S CHARTER >>ELEVEN. ELEVEN THAT WOULD BE THE TOTAL. >>WELL IT’S A 9 PERCENT TO THIRTY ONE POINT EIGHT PERCENT STATE TAX AND THAT DOES SUNSET AT SOME POINT WHEN THE TRACKING WHEN THE WORLD TRACK GAMES ARE OVER BUT THEN THE 2 RCENT TO TPA FEE WOULD BE ON TOP OF THAT. SO TOTAL WOULD BE TWELVE POINT EIGHT PERCENT. ALL RIGHT. IT’S STILL LESS THAN PORTLAND AS I FOUND OUT LAST NIGHT. OKAY. JUST TO CLARIFY FOR THE RECORD IT’S NOT A TAX IT’S A FEE THERE ARE RESTRICTIONS ON FEE IT’S AN IMPROVED ACCESS STRATEGY FEE THAT’S CHARGED TO DOCUMENTS THAT ARE STAYING IN. ALL RIGHT. COUNCILLOR HOYE >>THANK YOU MR. AND MR. SNYDER.

ALL RIGHTY. I’M GOING TO CALL ON CHIEF. SORRY. WELL THANK >>YOU MARY. I KNOW EVERYONE’S ANXIOUS TO HEAR FROM CHIEF MOORE AND CHIEF MOORE WHO’S PREPARED THIS EVENING TO TALK ABOUT THE ORDINANCE AS RECOMMENDED HOW THE ORDINANCE WILL ASSIST THE CITY AND THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND HOW THE ORDINANCE WILL BE ENFORCED. A COUPLE OF POINTS I’D LIKE TO EMPHASIZE THOUGHFOR COUNCIL AND FOR THE PUBLIC. THIS ORDINANCES IS A MEANS TO ASSIST RESIDENTS AND PROPERTY OWNERS WHO ARE CURRENTLY RESPONSE FOR MAINTAINING SIDEWALKS AND RIGHTS OF >>WAY. IT’S MEANT TO RESPOND TO PERSISTENT AND CONSISTENT COMPLAINTS CONCERNS THAT STAFF AND I BELIEVE CITY COUNCILLORS AND THE MAYOR HAVE RECEIVED REGARDING THE USE OF SIDEWALKS AND RIGHTS OF WAY USES THAT IMPACT THE VITALITY OF OUR CITY’S COMMERCIAL AREAS AND THE LIVABILITY OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. THE ORDINANCE IS INTENDED TO ADDRESS BEHAVIORS SIDEWALKS AND RIGHTS OF WAY ARE NOT FOR SITTING IN LINE CAMPING AND STORING PERSONAL PROPERTY. THE CITY AND COMMUNITY CAN DO BETTER THAN OFFERING A SIDEWALK AS A PLACE TO LIVE. THE CITY’S WORK ON FUTURE FUNDING AND CONTINUING CURRENT FUNDING FOR THE DIFFICULT WORK OF PREVENTING HOMELESSNESS WILL CONTINUE. THTY’S MULTIPED RESPONSE TO OUR NEIGHBORS WHO ARE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS INCUDES HOMELESS RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM ASSISTING ARCHES WHICH PROVIDING EXPANDED DAYCARE DAY SERVICES AND DAY ROOM SPACE. PURCHASING GM SITE TO GIVE THEIR CAPITAL CAMPAIGN A SIGNIFICANT JUMPSTART ON FUNDRAISING TO BUILD A NEW EXPANDED SHELTER THE CITY’S FUNDS THEY GO TO NON-PROFIT AGENCIES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITY >>THE SERVICES OF THE SALE HOUSING AUTHORITY WHICH YOU HEARD THIS EVENING ARE CONTINUE TO EXPAND AND COUNCIL’S WORK TO ADD AFFORDABLE HOUSING OR MAINTAIN AFFORDABLE HOUSING THAT ALREADY EXISTS BY IDING PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS >>SO I KNOW YOU WANT TO HEAR FROM CHIEF MOORE BUT I DID WANT TO SHARE WITH COUNCILLOR HIS CHAIR WITH COUNCIL. WHY THIS WHY THIS VERY CHALLENGING AN DIFFICULT ISSUE IS BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING. THANK YOU CHIEF MOORE. THANK YOU MAYOR COUNCILLORS JERRY MAGUIRE CHIEF OF POLICE I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY HERE I’LL REPEAT A FEW THINGS YOU MAY HAVE HEARD ME SAY ABOUT THIS ORDINANCE IN THE PAST AND SO YOU IF YOU WOULD BEAR WITH WHY APPRECIATE IT? >>FIRST OF ALL NOT HAVING A PLACE TO LIVE IS NOT A CRIME ON A SIDEWALK. CONDUCT ORDINANCE IS NOT GOING TO SOLVE HOMELESSNESS AND >>IN A PERFECT WORLD THIS SITUATION WOULDN’T EVEN INVOLVE THE POLICE. BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE DRAWN INTO IT ON MANY OCASIONS. THIS ORDINANCE IS BEING BROUGHT HERE BECAUSE THE SIMPLE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT WHILE WE DON’TWE CERTAINLY DON’T ENFORCE A CLASS OF PEOPLE WE DO ENFORCE BEHAVIOR AND CONDUCT AND WHAT WE HAVE FOUND IS FOR THE LAST 3 4 5 YEARS. AND WHEN THE FIRST TIME THIS ORDINANCE WAS BROUGHT FORWARD TO THIS COUNCIL WE HAVE RECEIVED NUMEROUS ONGOING WEEKLY COMPLAINTS ABOUT BEHAVIOR AND CONDUCT AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHY WE ARE HERE. I WILL TELL YOU AS A POLICE >>FORCE WE CERTAINLY RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS A LOT THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. I THINK THE PEOPLE THAT SPOKE HERE TODAY ADDRESS MANY OF THOSE ISSUES AND WE WOULD AGREE DOWNTOWN HOMELESS SOLUTIONS TASK FORCE WE CERTAINLY ENDORSE AS THE EMERGENCY ROOM DOCTOR INDICATED WE CERTAINLY ENDORSE MANY OF THE SOLUTIONS THAT CAME OUT OF THAT AND I THINK THAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL FOR THIS COMMUNITY. IT WOULD CERTAINLY ELIMINATE MANY OF THE CONTACTS THAT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WOULD HAVE AND I THINK MOVING FORWARD THAT IS IS REALLY IMPORTANT I THINK ANY OF >>YOU KNOW THAT NO OUR POLICE FORCE KNOW THAT WE MAKE CONTACTS DAILY IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA BUT WE DON’T FILL JAIL WHAT WE DO IS WE LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO HOOK PEOPLE UP WITH >>SOCIAL SERVICES WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO FIND SOLUTIONS TO THE ISSUES THAT ARE FACING THEM AND WE DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO TRY AND MAKE THAT HAPPEN. I WILL TELL YOU THAT WITH OUR LEAD PROGRAM WHICH IS LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTED DIVERSION I THINK WE’VE BEEN INVOLVED WITH 57 REFERRALS AND WE’VE PROBABLY WITH SALEM HOUSING AUTHORITY WORKING WITH US WE PROBABLY HOUSED AT LEAST 100 PEOPLE AND TRYING TO FIND THEM AND GET THEM OFF OF THE STREETS. BUT THE REASON >>FOR THIS ORDINANCE IS SIMPLE. >>IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO AND >>AS WE CONTACT PEOPLE THAT ARE INVOLVED IN BEHAVIOR WHAT WE FIND IS THE PEOPLE THAT WE CONTACT ON A ROUTINE BASIS ARE NOT INTERESTED IN SERVICES. THEY’RE NOT INSTED IN CHANGING THEIR LIFESTYLE. THEY ARE INVOLVED IN BEHAVIORS THAT PROBABLY ARE WHAT WE WOULD CONSIDER NOT ACCEPTABLE IN. WHETHER IT’S DOWNTOWN OR ANYWHERE ELSE THERE’S DRUG ACTIVITY THAT IS ALCOHOL THERE’S CERTAINLY MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND WE CERTAINLY TRY AND DEAL WITH THOSE AS BEST WE CAN. SO I WOULD TELL YOU THIS ORDINANCE WOULD GIVE US PERHAPS A TOOL TO AND ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO CHANGE THEIR LIFESTYLE IT WOULD AS IT’S NOT A IT’S NOT IT’S NOT A CRIME. AND I KNOW IT CAN ESCALATE TO THAT BUT IT ESCALATES TO THAT IN PROBABLY THE THIRD FOURTH ATTEMPT TO TRY AND RESOLVE THE ISSUES. THE ORDINANCE ACTUALLY >>IN NOT ONLY ENCOURAGES BUT MAKES SURE THAT OUR FIRST CONTACTS >>WITH PEOPLE WE TRY HOOK THEM UP WITH SOCIAL SERVICES WE WARN THEM. WE DON’T TAKE ANY ACTION UNTIL WE GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A MAYBE A CHANGE IN THE BEHAVIOR THAT THEY’RE DOING. AND UNTIL A SECOND OR THIRD DO WE ACTUALLY ISSUE A CITATION FOR THE ISSUES THAT ARE GOING ON. THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW THE POLICE WILL ENFORCE THIS. I CAN TELL YOU POLICE OFFICERS HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF DISCRETION NOT ONLY WITH THIS ORDINANCE BUT IN EVERYTHING THEY DO EVERY SINGLE DAY. AND JUST BECAUSE THE ORDER NEXT EXISTS DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT WILL ALWAYS BE ENFORCED. BUT WHAT DOES MEAN IS THAT WE WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THOSE CONTACTS AND TRY AND CHANGE BEHAVIOR AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT WILLING TO DO THAT THEY COULD ISSUE A CITATION AND HOPEFULLY IF THE EXCLUSION SURVIVES IT WOULD GIVE US THE ABILITY AFTER MANY MANY ATTEMPTS THAT PEOPLE THAT DON’T WANT TO FOLLOW THE ORDINANCE COULD CERTAINLY BE ARRESTED FOR TRESPASS ULTIMATELY BUT IT WOULD BE OUR GOAL THAT THAT WOULDN’T OCCUR THAT WE WOULD UCATE AND WE’D ASSIST AND WE TRY AND MOVE PEOPLE IN A WAY THAT THIS ORDINANCE WOULDN’T HAVE TO BE ENFORCED. AND I’D BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS CHIEF. THIS IS YOUR SECOND TIME HERE ON THIS ISSUE. WHAT’S WHAT’S CHANGED THAT THIS NEEDED TO COME BACK. COUNCIL SAID NO BUT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO AND YOU’RE BACK. WHAT. WHAT’S GONE ON THAT’S CHANGED THIS WELL I GUESS >>THERE’S AN OLD SAYING THAT IF YOU KEEP DOING THE SAME THING AND EXPECT DIFFERENT RESULTS YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT GOING TO GET THEM AND I THINK AFTER FOUROR FIVE YEARS OF REPEATED OSES AND NOTHING CHANGING AS FAR AS BEHAVIOR >>I THINK THAT IT WAS WILL OF A WHOLE BUNCH >>OF PEOPLE THAT THIS ORDINANCE COME BACK BECAUSE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO WITH THE TOOLS WE HAVE HAS NOT BEEN EFFECTIVE. IT’S THAT SIMPLE. AND SO I THINK THAT’S THE REASON THIS THISINANCE IS BACK IN FRONT OF YOU COUNCILLOR ANDERSON THANK YOU AND THANKS FOR COMING DOWN CHIEF THANKS TO YOU AND YOUR DEPARTMENT FOR ALL THE HARD WORK YOU HAVE DONE ON THIS SERVICE YOU’VE GIVEN THE CITY. I I’M A LITTLE CONFUSED ABOUT >>EXCLUSIONARY ZONE PART OF THIS AND WHAT IS CONFUSING TO ME IS YOU TALKED ABOUT POTENTIALLY AN EXCLUSION IN CERTAIN AREAS OF THE CITY FOR TRESPASSING AND IS THERE SOMETHING THE EQUIVALENT TO EXCLUSIONARY ZONE NOW THAT IS THAT IS OF SOMEBODY DOWNTOWN COMMIT IS DOING BEHAVIORS THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE CAN THEY ALREADY BE EXCLUDED FROM DOWNTOWN OR IS THIS SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAT IS OSED. THANK YOU. COUNCILLOR WE’VE HAD THE EXCLUSION PORTION OF AN ORDINANCE FOR PROBABLY 25 YEARS. WE’VE UTILIZED IT WHERE NECESSARY AND THE ONLY TIME THE EXCLUSION WOULD COME IN TO PLAY IS IF WE DIDN’T GET COMPLIANCE WITH REQUESTS WE ASKED PEOPLE WE EDUCATE THEM AND ASK THEM TO CEASE WHATEVER >>BEHAVIOR THEY’RE DOING AND IF THEY SIMPLY REFUSE TO DO THAT THEY COULD BE EXCLUDED FROM ONE OF FROM TWO AREAS IN TOWN AND IF THEY FAILED TO ONCE THERE EXCLUDED IF THEY STILL FAILED TO CHANGE THEIR CONDUCT THEN THEY COULD BE ARRESTED BECAUSE THEY HAVE FAILED TO LEAVE THAT THAT AREA THANK YOU VERY MUCH. JUST KIND OF A FOLLOW UP QUESTION SO IT SEEMS >>TO ME THAT WITH THE ORDINANCE THAT IS AS PROPOSED IT’S THE SIT LIE PORTION OF THAT THAT WOULD GIVE UP POTENTIAL AFTER YOU KNOW YOU’VEKEN WITH PEOPLE AND COUNSEL THEM AND GIVEN THEM I DON’T KNOW WHATEVER STEPS YOU WOULD TAKE TO MAKE SURE THEIR BEHAVIOR IS NOT A REPEATED >>IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE SIT BY ORDINANCE PART THIS ORDINANCE IS GIVES YOU A BROADER >>GROUNDS TO EXCLIS THAT A FAIR INTERPRETATION OF THAT. WELL I’M >>NOT SURE THAT’S THE CASE IF WE APPROACH SOMEBODY WHO IS IF THE CAMPING PORTION OF THIS WAS IN PLACE AND THEY FAILED TO MOVE THEY COULD BE EXCLUDED FROM ONE OF THOSE AREAS AND THEY COULD BE AND IF THEY FAIL TO DO THAT THEN THEY COULD BE OR THEY COULD BE ARRESTED FOR FOR THAT VIOLATE. YEAH AND I CERTAINLY UNDERSTAND THAT WITH THE CAMPING GUESS I’D LET ME ASK A >>LITTLE MORE FOCUSED QUESTION RIGHT NOW SOMEBODY IS SITTING OR LYING ON THE SIDEWALKS UNDER THE CURRENT STATE OF THE LAW. YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE EXCLUSION PORTION OF THE STATUTE THAT’S ALREADY IN EFFECT UNLESS THERE ARE SOME OTHER BEHAVIORS THAT MIGHT LEAD TO EXCLUSION. >>WELL HOW EXCLUSION WORKS IS YOU FOR WE WOULD WARN AND WE WARN AGAIN AND IF WE GOT NO COMPLIANCE WE WOULD CITE IF AFTER THE CITATION THERE THEY REFUSE TO LEAVE OR DIDN’T DO ANYTHING THEN WE COULD EXCLUDE THEM FROM THE DOWNTOWN AREA IF THEY FAILED TO >>LEAVE THE DOWNTOWN AREA FOR INSTANCE THEN THEY WOULD BE SUBJECT TO TRESPASS BECAUSE THEY’D FAILED TO LEAVE WHAT? CHIEF WHAT >>IS THE MOST COMMON BEHAVIOR THAT RESULTS IN EXCLUSI WHAT’S GETTING PEOPLE EXCLUDED TODAY. WHAT WHAT KINDS OF THINGS THAT ARE >>CHIEF IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE FROM FROM THE OFFICERS WHO ARE WORKING IN THE AREA AND THE OTHERS THAT YOU KNOW THAT MIGHT HELP. I DON’T WORK THE STREET LIKE I USED TO WRITE >>PERHAPS ONE OF THEM MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP ME OUT IF YOU COME UP TO MY ESQUE ESCAPE HERE FROM THE AREAS SHORTS DEPUTY OF SKIDMORE I CLEARLY WORK THE STREET A LOT MORE IN THE CHIEF AND IT’S MY SORT OF BILL STILL UP THERE. I BELIEVE THE MOST COMMON OFFENSES AND TEND TO YOUR QUESTION COUNSELOR I THINK AS I UNDERSTAND THE ANSWER WOULD BE YES IT WOULD ACTUALLY. WE ALREADY HAVE THE DOWNTOWN EXCLUSION IN PLACE THIS WOULD ACTUALLY INCREASE AND COVER THOSE AREAS WE WOULD NOT OTHERWISE BE ABLE TO ADDRESS THAT BUT I THINK IN REGARD TO THATTHE TOP OFFENSES THAT WE >>GENERALLY EXCLUDE FOR AND SO SO THE DEAL THAT THE COMMON OFFENSES THAT OCCUR YEAH ARE JUST PASSES WE A LOT OF CHECK WELFARE’S WHICH IS IT ANY KIND OF CRIMINALITY IN AND OF ITSELF JUST CALLED FOR SERVICE DISTURBANCES WELFARE CHECKS GOING TO SAID THAT WHEN IN CHIEF I THINK YOU HAVE THE LIST OF WHAT WE’VE ADDRESSED WITH THE MOST COMMON ONES. WELL I THINK THOSE >>ARE THE MOST COMMON CALLS BUT THE MOST THING THAT SOMEONE MIGHT BE EXCLUDE FOR WOULD BE FIGHTING DRINKING AND COULD BE EXCLUDED FOR ANY NUMBER OF MINOR CRIMES DRUG OFFENSES BUT THOSE ARE WHY PEOPLE ARE ARRESTED AND THEY CAN BE EXCLUDED FOR THOSE OFFENSES. ME IF I MAY AGAIN. I WAS JUST REMINDED THAT URINATION AND DEFECATION ALSO URINATION AND DEFECATION ARE ALSO TWO OF THE MOST COMMON OFFENSES THAT WOULD APPLY TO THIS CELL FOR FOUR YEAR NATURE AND DETION. IF YOU CAN CATCH >>PERSON HOUSE AT WORK BY WHY ARE WE HAVING URINATION DEFECATION ISSUES AND RACE >>TO US IF YOU CAN EXCUSE ME APPARENTLY THEY DON’T HAVE A BATHROOM I’M NOT. IS AT THE PROBLEM. MARY THERE IS THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT THERE IS IS NOT A LOT OF PUBLIC BATHROOMS OR FACILITIES THAT ARE HARD TO CATCHING PEOPLE URINATING AND DEFECATING AT THIS POINT ARE OFFICERS CATCH >>THEM OCCASIONALLY MORE OFTEN THEY’RE NOT IT’S A CALL AND THE OFFENSE HAS ALREADY OCCURRED BY THE TIME WE GET THERE. OK I’LL TRY AND ANSWER THE QUESTION A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY. THAT’S A HARD ONE FOR US TO DO BECAUSE IT USUALLY HAPPENS IT HAPPENS WHEN NO ONE’S AROUND QUITE FRANKLY. OCCASIONALLY OUR OFFICERS WILL WRITE UP ON IT ON A BICYCLE AND GET SOMEBODY IN THE BACK. BUT I THINK MOST OF THOSE OFFENSES HUMAN WASTE AND SUCH THEY MIGHT OCCUR WHERE A SHOP OWNER OBSERVES IT. BUT I WOULD SAY IT RARELY HAPPENS IN FRONT OF POLICE OFFICER CHIEF OR SKIP. WOULD YOU AGREE THAT THAT >>DOWNTOWN BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL AREA IS BECAUSE INCREASINGLY RESIDENTIAL IS BEING DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY HOMELESSNESS YOU ALL SEE THE CITY AS A WHOLE IN TERMS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT ABSOLUTELY I THINK IT’S BEEN THAT WAY FOR AS LOG AS I’VE WORKED HERE IN THE CIWHICH IS A LONG TIME AND I THINK UNION GOSPEL MISSION IS DOWNTOWN I THINK SERVICES ARE DOWNTOWN AND I THINK PEOPLE ARE DRAWN TO THAT AND THAT’S WHY I WOULD SAY THE DOWNTOWN AREA HAS THE MOST IS MOST IMPACTED BY SOME THOSE ISSUES. WE JUST DON’T SEE IT IN OTHER NEIGHBORHOODS. OH I THINK WE I THINK I THINK MOST RECENTLY WE WE SEE IT EVERYWHERE AND I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY PART OF THIS CITY THAT’S IMMUNE FROM LE THAT DON’T HAVE A PLACE TO LIVE AND SOME ISSUES THAT THAT BRINGS. WHAT ABOUT CAMPING. I MEAN I HEAR ABOUT CAMPING FROM ALL OVER THAT COMMUNITY DIFFERENT KINDS OF CAMPING ISSUES BUT WILL THAT BE. WELL THAT CHANGE AS A RESULT OF THIS ORDINANCE IF IT WERE TO PASS WILL >>IF THIS ORDINANCE WERE TO PASS CAMPING IN THE CITY WOULD BE ILLEGAL. AS I INDICATED AT THE WORK SESSION TODAY YOU COULD WELL YOU SEE WHAT’S AROUND ARCHES AND YOU COULD YOU COULD JUST STAND IN FRONT OF ANY DOWNTOWN BUSINESS AND IF IT’S NOT BLOCKING THE SIDEWALK WE DON’T HAVE AN ORDINANCE THAT CAN DEAL WITH THAT THAT CAN’T BE PITCHED IN FRONT OF COUNCILLOR HALLWAYS HOUSE IN A PUBLIC RIGHT AWAY. IT COULD TODAY CACTUS IT’S NOT AN IDEA. I’M >>NOT >>ALL RIGHTY. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR THE CHIEF COUNCIL. LEWIS YOU >>KNOW I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS A FAIR COURSE YOUR OFF CHIEF BUT WE SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME LISTENING TONIGHT AND THERE SEEMS TO BE A DISCONNECTION BETWEEN YOUR EXPLANATION OF WHAT THIS AUDIENCE IS FOR HOW IT WOULD BE UTILIZED AND WHAT I’LL CALL THE TRUE FEAR OF THE FOLKS I SPOKE EARLIER ABOUT. NO IT’S GONNA BE IT’S GONNA BE THE END OF OUR LIVELIHOODS IT’S GONNA BE USED HER UNIVERSALLY GONNA ANY IDEA OF WHY. WHY THE DISCONNECT WELL I >>CAN’T ANSWER THAT. I CAN JUST GIVE YOU FACTUAL ORDINANCE DOES NOT ALLOW PEOPLE TO SIT OR LIE OR LEAVE ABANDONED PROPERTY OR CAMP IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA DURING THE HOURS. IT’S IN EFFECT WHETHER THAT’S SEVEN TO SEVEN OR SEVEN TO NINE. IT DOES NOT. PEOPLE ARE STILL ABLE TO SLEEP DOWNTOWN DURING THE HOURS OF DARKNESS IF YOU WILL FROM 9 P.M. OR 7 P.M. WHATEVER COUNCIL IF THEY WERE TO APPROVE THAT THEY CAN SLEEP DOWNTOWN IF THEY DECIDE THEY DON’T WANT TO GO TO THE MISSOR ANYWHERE ELSE BUT BY 7:00 IN THE MORNING THEY HAVE TO LEAVE. SO. AND THE SIMPLE FACT THE MATTER IS AS WE CONTACT PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE VIOLATING MAY BE LAYING OR SLEEPING ON THE SIDEWALK. OUR FIRST COURSE OF ACTION IS NOT ARREST. IT’S SIMPLY TO ASK THEM TO MOVE AND IF THEY MOVE THERE IS NO IMPACT TO THSE PEOPLE BOTHER HIM OR TALK TO THEM AGAIN AND THEY’RE FREE TO MOVE ABOUT JUST LIKE ANY OTHER CITIZEN WOULD BE. SO AS I SAID >>EARLIER IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO IF YOU IF YOU ARE EDUCATED ABOUT THE ORDINANCE AND YOU DECIDE TO DISREGARD IT THEN YOU WOULD BE CERTAINLY COULD BE IMPACTED IF YOU’RE EDUCATED ABOUT THE ORDINANCE AND YOU GET UP AND MOVE ALONG AND GO SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU’RE LEGALLY ABLE TO BE THE POLICE WILL BE CONTACTED POSSIBLY. A FEW WEEKS AGO I MET WITH SEVERAL HOMELESS FOLKS AND WHEN I HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH THEM I WANTED TO HEAR FROM THEM WHAT THEIR CONCERNS WERE ABOUT THE ORDINANCE. ONE THING THAT CAME UP AND I WAS ACTUALLY BROUGHT UP BY SOMEONE WHO WAS TESTIFYING EARLIER WAS ABOUT ABUSE OF POWER SPECIFICALLY BY POLICE OFFICERS WHO WOULD BE ENFORCING THE ORDINANCE WHAT ARE THE PROTECTIONS ARE GOING T HOUSE’S COMMITTEE MEMBERS SPECIFICALLY >>IF THEY’RE BEING TARGETED OR ATTACKED. I EAN WE >>HEARD FROM ONE PERSON EARLIER WHO TALKED ABOUT AN OFFICER THAT KICKED HER IN THAT NOT >>HERE IN SALEM BUT SOMEWHERE ELSE. AND WHEN I WAS MEETING WITH SOME OF THE SOME OF THE HOUSE’S COMMITTEE MEMBERS THEY SHARED WITH ME THERE WAS AT LEAST ONE OFFICER IN THE CITY OF SALEM >>WHO SEEMED TO MAE >>A POINT TO TARGET THEM NO MATTER WHERE THEY HID THIS PARTICULAR OFFICER WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THEM BULLY THEM AND PUSH ABOUT. YEAH THAT’S A VERY DIFFICULT QUESTION I’VE >>BEEN ANSWER I DON’T KNOW WHO THE OTHER PERSON IS I DON’T KNOW WHO THE OFFICER WAS YOU KNOW THEIR >>SITUATION WAS IN HIS NAME. WELL YEAH. YEAH I CERTAINLY LOOK INTO IT. I WILL TELL YOU COUNSELOR THAT IT IS VERY RARE THAT THIS POLICE DEPARTMENT GETS COMPLAINTS ABOUT HOW WE TREAT PEOPLE AND WE’RE NOT PERFECT BUT I WILL. I’D PUT THIS ORGANIZATION UP AGAINST ANY FOR THREE OR FOUR YEARS WE’VE BEEN DEALING WITH ISSUES WHERE PEOPLE CALL US ABOUT THEIR CONCERNS ABOUT WHAT HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS HAVE BEEN DOING AND WE’VE YOU’VE HEARD >>THE WORDS BEFORE WE ARE TREATED WITH HUMANELY WE’VE TREATED WITH COMPASSION AS BEST WE CAN AND WE’VE TRIED TO POLICE THIS COMMUNITY THE WAY WE THINK THIS COMMUNITY WOULD LIKE US TO POLCE IT. SO I I DON’T KNOW THE SITUATION. YOU MAY BE HEARING ONE SIDE BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE OTHER ONE IS MAYBE SOMEBODY GOT REPEATED WARNINGS I DON’T KNOW BUT THAT’S THAT’S WHAT I WOULD TELL ALSO THE CITY HAS HAS A MECHANISM IN PLACE TO PROVIDE RESIDENT CITIZEN OVERSIGHT OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WHEN THERE ARE COMPLAINTS? THOSE ARE REVIEWED BY BY COMMITTEE OF CITIZENS THAT STAFFED OUT OF THE CITY MANAGER’S OFFICE BY GRETCHEN BENNETT. SO THERE IS THAT INDEPENDENCE FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WHEN THERE ARE CONCERNS RAISED REGARDING POLICE MISCONDUCT I THINK ONE >>OTHER KEY PIECE THAT’S MISSING HERE IS LIKE A LOT OF THESE FOLKS WHO HAVE BEEN ATTACKED BY THIS PARTICULAR OFFICER. THEY’RE N>>GOING TO BE COMING OUT AND TELLING REPORTING WHAT’S HAPPENED TO THEM. I MEAN THEY ALREADY >>HAD ENOUGH TRAUMA FROM LIVING >>IN THE STREETS AND NOW THEY’RE HAVING AN OFFICER THAT’S BEATING DOWN ON THEM. SO PLEASE TELL ME HHESE INDIVIDUALS >>WOULD BE WILLING TO COME TO EVEN THE CITY OR TALK TO ANYBOD THAT THE CITY IS GOING TO ACTUALLY LISTEN TO THEM WHEN THEY KNOW THAT THERE’S AT LEAST AN >>OFFICER OUT THERE WHO IS TARGETING THEM. WELL >>I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE CITY MANAGER DID THE PROCEDURE. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW TO HAVE SOMEBODY THINK E BEST WE CAN DO IS TREAT SOMEONE FAIRLY LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. AND IF IF AN OFFIHAS ABUSED THEIR POWER AND IT’S A VIOLATION OF OUR DIRECTIVES AND WE WOULD CERTAINLY DEAL WITH THAT ISSUE NO NO. WE’RE DONE WITH PUBLIC >>I’M SORRY. WE’RE DONE IN PUBLIC TESTIMONY. NOW MADAM OK GO AHEAD. COUNCILMAN THANK YOU. I DON’T KNOW THE QUESTION FOR YOU CHIEF FOR A QUESTION FOR THE CITY ATTORNEY. I THINK IT’S PROBABLY FOR YOU. MR. ATCHISON WHAT IS THE DEFINITION >>OF CAMPING. MAYBE IT’S HIDDEN IN THE ORDINANCE SOMEPLACE THAT I DIDN’T SEE BUT YEAH. IS THERE A DEFINITION OF CAMPING IN THE ORDINANCE OR IS THERE DEFINITION CAMPING SOMEPLACE ELSE IN THE CITY. REVISED CODE THERE IS A DEFINITION OF CAMPING IN THE ORDINANCE AND I WILL READ THAT TO YOU IN JUST A MOMENT AND WHY YOU’RE LEAKING >>H TWO OF EXHIBIT A. OKAY. SO PROPOSED >>NINETY FIVE SEVEN THIRTY. IT’S PROBABLY EA FOR YOU TO READ IT THAN WOULD BE FOR ME TO FIND AS LONG AS COUNTING ISN’T INVOLVED A PILL FEEL PRETTY GOOD ABOUT THAT. OKA >>SO I’M THERE I’M THERE. OK. I GOT TO CAMP MEANS. OK. THAT’S WHAT I WAS THINKING IT WAS IT RELATED TO A STRUCTURE ITSELF >>TO SET UP OR REMAIN A CAMPSITE MEANS ANY PLACE WHERE THERE’S A TENT >>OR ANY STRUCTURE OR ASSEMBLE MATERIALS CONSISTING OF ANY MATERIAL WIH THE TOP OR ROOF. SO THAT’S AT’S THAT’S HELPFUL TO ME. SO >>SOMEONE WHO IS YOU KNOW I MEAN I GUESS I’M LOOKING AT THIS IN ONE WAY THAT I’M SURE YOU COULD LOOK AT THIS THE OTHER WAY BUT SOMEBODY WHO WAS THERE IN A SLEEPING BAG ON A PAD THAT’S NOT THAT’S NOT THAT’S NOT A CAMPSITE. THAT’S CORRECT. YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE A SLEEPING BAG WITH A OR A SLEEPING BAG WITH A CARDBOARD STRUCTURE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. OK. THANKS. ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS ALL RIGHT COUNCILLOR HOY. THANK >>YOU MR. MAYOR AND COUNCIL IF YOU’LL BEAR WITH ME. I THINK I HAVE. WE’VE WORKED OUT A PLAN TO GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO VOTE ON A VARIETY OF ISSUES TONIGHT WITHOUT HAVINGGO THROUGH AMENDED MOTIONS AND SUBSTANTIVE MOTIONS AND THAT SORT OF THING YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY IF THIS PLAN WORKS TO VOTE ON EACH INDIVIDUAL >>ASPECT OF THIS ORDINANCE AS I HAVE HEARD THEM OVER THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS. SO >>MY INITIAL MOTION AND THIS IS JUST TO GET A MOTION ON THE FLOOR IS A MOVE STAFF >>RECOMMENDATION WITH THE ADDITION OF AN EMERGENCY CLAUSE TO THE ORDINANCE WILL TAKE EFFECT IMMEDIATELY UPON SECOND READING >>SECOND BY AND NOW I WILL MOVE TO AMEND THAT MAIN MOTION TO ELIMINATE THE PROPOSED RESTRICTIONS ON SITTING OR LYING ON PUBLIC SIDEWALKS. SECOND >>SECOND IS AND AS I UNDERSTAND >>IT NOW WE WOULD START THE CONVERSATION ON THE AMENDMENT AND THEN ULTIMATELY WE’LL GET BACK TO THE ORIGINAL SO >>THE REASON FOR MY AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION IS THE SIT PORTION OF THIS OF THIS LAW SEEMS TO BE ONE THAT IS LEAST UNDERSTOOD MAYBE AS THE APPEARANCE OF THE LEAST NT OF COMPASSION IT’S IT’S IT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU KNOW WHEN I GIVE GREAT DEFERENCE TO THE POLICE CHIEF I DO AS A 30 YEAR LAW ENFORCEMENT PROFESSIONAL MYSELF. THIS IS A VERY DIFFICULT VERY DIFFICULT TOPIC FOR ME. AS YOU KNOW I’M A PERSON THAT COMES FROM A FAMILY WITH MENTAL ILLNESS. MY MOM WAS A PATIENT AT THE OREGON STATE HOSPITAL WHERE SHE PERISHED SO I SEE THIS ISSUE FROM A LOT OF DIFFERENT ANGLES AND I LISTEN >>TO ALL THE TESTIMONY I LISTEN TO THE TESTIMONY AT >>VARIETY OF THE IC FORUMS AND ‘S DIFFICULT >>FOR ME TO IMAGINE HOW WE CAN IMPLEMENT THTHIS PORTION OF THIS ORDINANCE WITH WITH SUFFICIENT COMPASSION GIVING ALL THE DIFFERENCE TO THE POLICE IT’S NOT ABOUT THEM IT’S ABOUT THE LANGUAGE THAT WE’RE USING HERE. SO I’M AMENDING MY MOTION TO REMOVE THAT PORTION HEY YOU’VE HEARD THE AMENDMENT A DISCUSSION CALL A QUESTION. I’M JUST THINKING FOR A MINUTE HERE AS WAIT FOR COUNCILLOR CASE OR IT’S NICE OF YOU TO INTERRUPT HER ABOUT CAN’T BE >>LOOKING CAN’T SEE HER. YEAH THAT’S RIGHT. I SECOND COUNCILLOR ADVISES COMMON ABOUT REMOVING THE PROPOSED RESTRICTIONS ON SITTING OR LYING ON PUBLIC SIDEWALKS. I THINK THIS IS THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL PIECE OF THIS ORDINANCE AND SOMETHING THAT I HAVE WITNESSED OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS FEW WEEKS REALLY IS THIS ORDINANCE HAS REALLY BEEN COMMUNICATED AS JUST A LIE IT’S JUST ABOUT SUPPLY AND IT’S IT’S NOT. IT’S REALLY THREE PIECES THAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT. THEY WERE JUST PACKAGED IN ONE OR ORDINANCE BUT READING THROUGH THE PUBLIC COMMENTS TALKING WITH SOME OF THE FOLKS WERE TESTIFYING TONIGHT ACTUALLY. THIS PIECE IS THE MOST CONING TO PEOPLE. I DO THINK THAT IT DOESN’T NECESSARILY ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF DOWNTOWN BUSINESS OWNERS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY IS BECAUSE IT SOMEBODY COULD STILL SLEEP DOWNTOWN AND YOU WOULD ENCOUNTER THE BEHAVIOR THAT WE’VE HEARD ABOUT AND THEN >>THEY WOULD LEAVE IN THE MORNING AND SO >>IF YOU GET TO YOUR BUSINESS AND YOU HAVE KIND OF THE REMNANTS BASICALLY OF SOMEBODY WHO’S WHO’S LIVED THERE OVERNIGHT YOU’RE STILL DEALING WITH THAT AS A BUSINESS. SO IT’S NOT NECESSARILY DEALING WITHTHAT BEHAVIOR. I DO THINK THE PROHIBITION ON CAMPING IS NECESSARY. I WILL SAY IT AGAIN I SAID IT AT THE WORK SESSION. I’M SURPRISED THE CITY DOESN’T HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS. BECA TECHNICALLY NOW YOU YOU COULD GO BUILD A STRUCTURE PUBLIC. ANYBODY COULD GO BUILD A STRUCTURE ON PUBLIC PROPERTY AND LIVE THERE. AND I LIKE I’VE SAID BEFORE I JUST GET CONCERNED ABOUT THE PRIVATIZATION OF PUBLI PROPERTY. I THINK IT’S A IT’S A CONCERN. IF I CAN’T BE THERE BECAUSE SOMEBODY IS CLAIM THAT AS THEIR SPACE THAT’S VERY CONCERNING TO ME FROM A PUBLIC PROPERTY STANDPOINT. SO I SUPPORT AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION. I >>JUST THINK I’M JUST THINKING ABOUT COUNCILLOR GAZERS. I’M SORRY I WASN’T. I GOT LOST AT THE PRIVATIZATION OF PUBLIC PROPERTY. I’LL ASK ABOUT IT LATER. GO AHED. THANKS >>MR. MAYOR. I WOULD SINCE WE’RE HAVING DISCUSSION I’LL ADD MY TWO CENTS TO IT AND REALLY I WAS OPPOSED TO THE SIT LIE PORTION OF THE ORDINANCE WHEN IT CAME UP BEFORE. AND TO ME IT’S A START. IT’S MORE OF A ATUS CRIME THAN A CONDO CRIME WE SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT PEOPLE’S CONDUCT. AND I UNDERSTAND THE CITY ATTORNEY HAS DONE A VERY GOOD JOB OF OF TRYING >>TO MOVE IT AWAY FROM A STATUS OF CRIME BUT THAT’S TO >>ME REALLY WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. AND I NOTICE THAT MANY PEOPLE WHO TALK TONIGHT EVEN IN FAVOR OF THE ORDINANCE TALKED ABOUT SIT LIE BEHAVIOR AND THAT’S THE ISSUE TO ME IS TO BEHAVIOR MORE THAN JUST SITTING AND LYING. SO I WILL SUPPORT COUNCILLOR ROY’S AMENDMENT TO HIS ORIGINAL MOTION. COUNCILLOR MURDOCH THANK YOU MAYOR I AGREE THAT PEOPLE ARE RIGHTFULLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE IMPACT OF HOMELESSNESS ON OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY AND ON OUR DOWNTOWN CORE AND WHAT I AM CONCERNED ABOUT MANY THINGS WITH SIT E ORDINANCE ONE BEING THAT THIS WILL PUSH FOLKS IT LL DISPLACE FOLKS IT WILL NOT MAKE THEM DISAP IT WILL PUSH FOLKS INTO THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS AND INTO PARKS AND THAT ISN’T OUR SOLUTION. AND >>I KNOW NEIGHBORS DO NOT WANT VISIBLE HOMELESSNESS IN THEIR PARKS OR IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD OR IN THEIR BUSINESS COMMUNITIES ANYMORE THAN THE DOWNTOWN AREA WANTS THEM IN THAT SPACE. UNFORTUNATELY >>THE CITY ORDINANCE HAS REALLY DIVIDED OUR CITY >>AND I THINK IT’S TIME THAT WE START TALKING ABOUT REAL AND EVIDENCE BASED SOLUTIONS FOR ADDRESSING HOMELESSNESS WE’VE SEEN >>SIMILAR PROVISIONS SUCH AS THE ONE IN CITY GO DOWN IN THE CITY OF PORTLAND GO DOWN IN FLAMES AND EVEN THE PROPONENTS >>AS I UNDERSTAND IT AGREE THAT THIS DOESN’T SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND >>AS A LAWYER I HAVE GRAVE THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THIS PROVISION. I RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE WITH THE OPINION OF OTHER ATTORNEYS SOME OF >>THE OTHER ATTORNEYS WHO’VE SPOKEN I KNOW THAT LITIGATION IS COSTLY AND I QUESTION WHETHER IT’S A GOOD >>USE OF OUR RESOURCES TO HAVE THE CITY BACK ON ITS HEELS DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF PROVISION THAT MANY DEEM INHUMANE INSTEAD OF SPENDING OUR LIMITED TIME AND RESOURCES ON ADDRESSING HOMELESS NESS ON REDUCING HOMELESSNESS THIS IS AN >>ISSUE THAT I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH EVERYONE ON AND IT WILL TRULY TAKE A COMMUNITY BASED APPROACH TO FIX BUT >>IT IS TIME TO TALK ABOUT EVIDENCE BASED SOLUTIONS AND HOUSING FIRST IS A NATIONAL MODEL THAT IS WIDELY RESPECTED THE CITY IS TAKING SOME STEPS IN THAT DIRECTION AND WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO PUT FORTH OUR RESOURCES AND OUR COMPASSION AND OUR MONEY SUCH AS WE HAVE IT TO SAY THINGS THAT ACTUALLY WORK SO. AND >>ON TOP OF ALL THOSE THINGS YOU OW I’VE ONLY BEEN HERE A COUPLE OF WEEKS >>AND IN THAT TIME I’VE MET WITH CENTER FOR AND SAFETY UNITED WAY FAMILY PROMISE LEGAL AID SERVICES OREGON ARHES TWICE AND EUGENE AND AS >>I UNDERSTAND IT MIGHT TAKE ONE OF MY KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS MEETINGS IS THAT SIT LIE WON’T WORK. SO THE TITUTIONALITY >>IS REASON ENOUGH FOR ME TO SUPPORT A RECOMMENDATION TO REMOVE SIT E FROM THIS ORDINANCE >>BUT WHAT I’M HEARING ALSO IS THAT IT JUST WON’T WORK. IT WILL DISPLACE PEOPLE NOT MAKE THEM DISAPPEAR. SO LET’S FOCUS ON REAL SOLUTIONS MOVING FORWARD LIKE A MOBILE RESPONSE UNIT LIKE MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING LIKE MORE HOUSING FIRST LET’S FOCUS ON SOLUTION THAT WORK THANK YOU. I JUST KIND OF SIDE NOTE OR AN ASTERIX. SALEM HAS THE LARGEST HOUSING FIRST PROGRAM IN THE STATE OF OREGON AT THIS POINT. SO I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT WE AT LEAST RECOGNIZE WHERE WE’RE FOLLOWING THE PATH ANYWAY OF BEST PRACTICES. COUNCILLOR NANCY THANK YOU MR. MAYOR. WE HAVE A TWITTER PROGRAM. I THINK WE’VE BEEN ON THE FOREFRONT OF A LOT OF THESE ISSUES >>AND WE CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD >>BUT HOUSING FIRST IS NOT GOING TO ADDRESS THAT BEHAVIOR ISSUES THAT THE POLICE CHIEF HAS BEEN COMMENTING ON BECAUSE THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE OF CONCERN ARE NOT INTERESTED IN BEING IN THAT HOUSING AND THAT’S THAT’S SAD. AND IT’S NOT GOING TO BE >>USED THAT FREQUENTLY AND IT’S NOT PUSHING PEOPLE. I SUPPOSE BOTTOM LINE QUESTION THIS APPLIES TO ALL SIDEWALKS IN TOWN AND THE MAYOR KIND OF MENTIONED HOW >>MANY PEOPLE WILL TAKE SLEEPING ON THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF YOUR HOUSE >>BECAUSE THAT WE HAVE >>MORE HOUSING THAN EVER DOWNTOWN IT’S NOT JUST BUSINESS IT’S PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING IN PEOPLE’S DOORWAYS TO THEIR HOMES. AND YES IT DOESN’T AFFECT THE EVENING WHICH IS WHERE A LOT OF THAT BODILY WASTE COMES IN OVERNIGHT. PEOPLE ARE HAVING TO GET TO THEIR BUSINESS EARLY IN THE MORNING TO CLEAN UP WE >>HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO. AND IN MY OPINION THIS IS THIS IS PART OF THE WORK THAT OUR STAFF HAS ASKED US FOR TO ADDRESS SOME OF THE BEHAVIORS OUTSIDE OF THAT BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT AS ALTERNATIVES STILL DON’T ADDRESS THAT THAT ONE COMPONENT THAT THE POLICE CHIE ASKING FOR. YEAH COUNSELOR I’D LIKE YOU I’VE SERVED ON THIS COUNCIL FOR MANY YEARS NOT AS LONG AND NO ONE HAS MANY >>YEARS OF OFFICER. BUT I GOT TO JUST SAY I HAVE NEVER EVER HEARD THIS POLICE CHIEF OR PREVIOUS POLICE CHIEF COME TO US ASKING FOR TOOLS THEY DIDN’T NEED. I’VE JUST NOT HEARD IT. I HAVE A MEMORY OF ONE TIME BACK IN THE 60S WHEN ONE OF THE CHIEFS THOUGHT HE NEEDED BEANBAG GUNS TO CONTROL THE WILD AND CRAZY STUDENTS THAT ALL AM. BUT BEYOND THAT I’M NOT AWARE OF ANYONE I AND PARTICULARLY THIS CHIEF I I’M JUST I’M KIND OF LISTENING TO THIS SOMEWHAT IN AMAZEMENT. THE CHIEF IS BACK FOR THE SECOND TIME THE QUESTION I’LL HAVE IS IF HE COMES BACK FOR A THIRD TIME BECAUSE THIS IS NOT DEALING WITH THE PROBLEM AND WE CONTINUE TO HAVE THE KINDS OF BEHAVIORAL ISSUES THAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT SHOULD WE LOOK AT IT AGAIN. BECAUSE I I’VE JUST GOT THIS FEELING IT’S COMING BACK. YOU KNOW THERE WAS SOME SUGGESTION OF SUNSETTING IT SO WE COULD REVIEW IT IN SIX MONTHS. IS THAT KIND OF WHERE WE’RE HEADED SHOULD WE LOOK AT THIS AGAIN EVERY SIX MONTHS AND MONITOR >>THE SITUATION. I’M JUST I REALLY I’M NOT SURE I’M JUST STILL AMAZED THOUGH WHEN THAT WHEN THIS CHIEF OF POLICE THE QUALITY CHIEF WE’VE HAD OVER THE YEARS ASKED US FOR A TOOL. THERE’S SO MUCH WILLINGNESS TO JUST SAY NO AND TO SOMEHOW SUGGEST THERE’S SOME PROBLEM IN THAT FORCE THAT NONE OF HAVE IDENTIFIED BEFORE INVOLVING SOME SORT OF INAPPROPRIATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PUBLIC THEY SERVE WHICH JUST DOESN’T COME UP? I MEAN I’VE JUST WATCHED FOR THIS SINCE I’VE BEEN ON COUNCIL I’VE NEVER HEARD A COMPLAINT. SO I AND I GUESS I’M HEARING ONE TONIGHT FOR THE FIRST TIME SO I DON’T QUITE GET IT. I GOTTA I GOTTA TELL YOU AND MAYBE >>IT’S JUST I’VE BEEN AROUND TOO LONG AND I JUST GET HE HYPNOTIZED ME OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IT REALLY I DON’T I JUST DON’T GET IT. COUNCILLOR LEWIS YEAH I I CAN’T SUPPORT LITTLE BIT ABOUT CAMPING BUT CAMPING IN THE ISSUE OF CAMPING IS RELATIVELY NEW. CERTAINLY NOT YEARS AND YEARS OLD AT THE FOREFRONT LIK IT IS TODAY RESTRICTIONS >>ON SITTING AND LYING IN THE SIDEWALK ADDRESS THE MOST COMMON COMPLAINT THAT WE’VE BEEN GETTING FOR THE LAST THREE TO FIVE YEARS. THE IDEA >>THAT WE WILL USE THIS ORDINANCE SITTING LIE PART OF THE ORDINANCE TO SWEEP OUT EVERYBODY WHO’S SITTING AND LYING ON THE DOWNTOWN STREETS IS RIDICULOUS. WE’VE BEEN TOLD REPEATEDLY THIS IS A TOOL TO ALLOW THE POLICE TO DEAL BEHAVIORAL ISSUES AND >>IT IS NOT MEANT TO DO ANYTHING BUT THAT. AND SO TO REMOVE THAT PIECE OF THE TOOL I THINK IS WRONG. AND I CAN’T SUPPORT IT. I’M SORRY. THANK YOU. I WON’T MAKE IT CLEAR THAT MY OPPOSITION TO THIS OR NOT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OPPOSITION TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT OR HOW THEY HAVE OPERATED >>OVER THE YEARS AND I DON’T THINK THAT’S TRUE OF ANYBODY ELSE IN THE COUNCIL AND I. COUNCILLOR HOYE I THOUGHT EXPRESSED VERY ELOQUENTLY THAT HE HE’S HAD A CERT LIKE LIFETIME OF SERVICE IN LAW RCEMENT. YOU KNOW THAT >>TO ME IS NOT THE ISSUE. I AM NOT SAYING I’M AGAINST THE SIT LIE GORDON IT’S BECAUSE I’M AFRAID IF IT BECOMES IN EFFECT THE POLICE WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE THIS AND THE POLICE OR MISTREAT ZENS. I >>DON’T SEE THAT OH I SEE THIS AS A CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE I SEE IT AS EFFECTIVE IN THIS ISSUE AND I SEE IT AS A STATUS ISSUE AS OPPOSED TO BEHAVIOR WE’VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT ALL THESE OTHER BEHAVIORS THAT ARE ON THE STATUTES THAT CAN LEAD TO TRESPASSING FROM THE DOWNTOWN AREA. SO I THINK IT’S COMPLETELY POSSIBLE TO FULLY SUPPORT THE POLICE AND THE FINE JOB THEY DO BUT ALSO TO OPPOSE THE CITY >>LIKE PARTS PARTS OR NOT. I APPRECIATE YOU CLARIFYING THAT. I REALLY DO. I THINK THAT’S HELPFUL BECAUSE I THINK ANY SUGGESTION THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON HERE THAT THAT UNDERMINES THIS. SCHIEFFER THIS FORCE IS JUST REALLY OUT OF OUT OF PLACE. COUNSELOR JUST ADD ONE MORE THING TO TAKE US BACK TO THE TASK FORCE THAT WENT THROUGH THIS AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WE WENT THROUGH AT THE WORK SESSION AND THEY’RE UNDERWAY AND NOT THERE YET. AND AS THE CHIEF MENTIONED THAT HE BELIEVES THAT WHEN THOSE ARE IN PLACE IT WILL DECREASE A OF THESE CONTACTS. AND SO I THINK OF USING THAT RECOMMENDATION FROM THE TASK FORCE TO GET US HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND THEN I THINK WE WILL BE MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE AT LEAST PORTIONS SHOULD BE SOMETHING THAT THE TASK FORCE DID NOT RECOMMEND SHOULD WE REVISIT THAT REVISIT IT. COUNCILLOR AS THOSE THINGS COME ONLINE IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS AND THE CHIEF THINKS WE NEED TO REVISIT IT DO YOU THINK IN MY OPINION IS THIS IS INEFFECTIVE EITHER SO THIS IS TWO THINGS. ONE IS YOU’VE BEEN RECOMMENDED SOME THINGS THAT WOULD BE EFFECTIVE. THIS WASN’T ONE OF THEM. AND SO IF WE CONTINUE TO HAVE THIS ISSUE SHOULD WE TALK MORE ABOUT OTHER SOLUTIONS WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT OTHER SOLUTIONS. I NEVER SEEN SIT LIE AGAIN. THIS ONE ISN’T ONE THAT NEEDS TO BE REVISITED CONSTANTLY. I WANT >>TO KNOW HOW MANY FOLKS IN HERE FELT UNSAFE TO BE HOME WHEN YOU DIDN’T >>WANT TO GO HOME? EXCUSE ME. BECAUSE >>YOU’RE SCARED TO GO HOME HOW >>MANY OF YOU LIVED IN A SHELTER. NOT BY CHOICE BUT BECAUSE IT WAS THE SAFEST PLACE R YOU TO BE. I >>D IN A SHELTER BEFORE WE ACTUALLY >>WITHIN THE FIRST TWO YEARS I LIVED HERE IN SALEM WHEN I FIRST MOVED HERE TO SALEM I WAS AN UNSAFE >>RELATIONSHIP AND I >>STILL LIVE WITH THOSE SCARS TODAY. AND I REMEMBER >>WHEN I STYED IN THE SHELTER THERE WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE OTHER WOMEN OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAD CHILDREN I HAD MY OLDEST WHO WAS THREE AT THE TIME WITH ME >>I DID NOT CHOOSE TO BE THERE BUT I WANTED TO BE THERE BECAUSE IT WAS SAFER TO BE THERE THAN IT WAS TO BE AT HOME AND THINK ABOUT ALL THE FOLKS WHO ARE LIVING ON THE STREETS HOW MANY OF THEM WANT TO BE IN A SHELTER >>BUT THEY CAN’T GET INTO SHELTER >>OR ABOUT >>FOLKS WHO WENT TO A SHELTER. BUT THEN WE’RE TRAUMATIZED IN THE SHELTER I’M >>BRINGING THIS UP JUST AS A REMINDER TO PEOPLE OF WHO >>WE HAVE WHO WE’RE LIVING IN THE STREETS IT COULD BE SOMEONE WHO WOULD THROUGH DOMESTIC >>VIOLENCE WHO IS TRYING TO ESCAPE >>IT COULD BE YOUTH. WE’RE >>SEEING A LARGE INCREASE IN NUMBER OF ELDERLY WHO ARE IN WHO ARE LIVING ON THREETS. I MEAN WHERE I LIVE AND WORK >>FOR I CONSTANTLY SEE EVERY NIGHT AN ELDERLY PERSON BY AROUND 10:00 11:00 P.M. PUSHING THE CART UP AND DOWN ON COMMERCIAL >>HEAR ABOUT >>FOLKS WHO HAD A MEDICAL BILL THAT RESULTED IN THEM >>NOT BEING ABLE TO AFFORD IT AND THEN THERRY EVENTUALLY HAD COLLECTIONS AND THEY WERE EVENTUALLY COULDN’T AFFORD IT AND THEY HAD TO BE ON THE STREETS. THERE WAS INDIVIDUALS WHO >>HAVE LOST OR LOST THEIR JOBS COULDN’T AFFORD TO PAY FOR THEM WHERE THEY LIVED AND THEY WERE ON THE STREETS >>>>I MEAN THESE ARE THE FOLKS WHO ARE IMPACTED THESE ARE THE FOLKS SOME OF THE VOICES OF INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE VING OUT THERE TODAY >>AND I >>JUST WANT FOLKS TO THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS WHEN YOU’RE MAKING YOUR VOTE ON WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO BEAT ONE ON TODAY’S ORDINANCE AND WHAT IMPACT IT WILL HAVE ON THESE FOLKS >>WHEN THEY’RE ALREADY LIVING TRAUMATIZED SCARED THANK YOU. OK. HOW DO YOU WANT AN RIGHT TO VOTE OR DO YOU WANT TO HEAR SOME MORE CLAPPING WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO? >>LET’S VOTE? OK? >>ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION SAY ALL OPPOSED. NO. HAPPY NAYS YES. YOU GO VISIT HERE. YEAH. I’M SORRY. THAT’S THE MOTION ON THE FLOOR IS THE MOTION TO AMEND IT. I CAN TELL IT’S WRONG. I KNOW YOU DIDN’T WANT TO VOTE AGAINST THIS COUNCIL. WE DON’T THINK THIS IS TO >>REMOVE ST. LIE WE’RE GOING THROUGH. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE. SYMBOLICALLY IMPORTANT ORDINANCE WHERE AM I FROM SO IF YOU WANT TO REMOVE THAT LIFE FROM NEW ORLEANS VOTE YES. IF YOU DON’T ONE OF THE FOUR YEARS THAT I VOTE NO. YEAH. DOES THAT HE’S WHAT THE AMENDMENT DOES IS TAKE THE SIT LIE OUT OF THE ORDINANCE. THIS IS COUNCILLOR POISE AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION. SO IT WOULD REMOVE THAT ISSUE FROM ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION INSIDE THE ORDINANCE OK SO IF YOU’RE FOR REMOVING SIT LIE YOU’D VOTE YES. OK YEAH YEAH. WE’RE NOT TO THE ORDINANCE FULL ORDINANCE YET. OK. OK. IS THAT OK. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION TO REMOVE SIT LIVE FROM THE ORDINANCE VOTE YES RAISE YOUR HANDS SO I CAN SEE. ALL THOSE. THERE’S FIVE. OKAY. ALL OPPOSED OKAY. PASSES FIVE FOUR OK. WHAT YOU GOT NEXT? THANK >>YOU MR. MAYOR? I MOVED TO CHANGE THE APPLICABLE HOURS OF THE SIT LIE RESTRICTIONS FROM 7 A.M. TO 9 P.M. TO 7 A.M. TO 7 P.M.. COUNSELOR >>I BELIEVE YOU REMOVED SET LIE FROM THE ORDINANCE SO WE PROBABLY DON’T NEED TO GO THAT THEYARE DOING. APPARENTLY >>I WAS LISTENING THE CITY ATTORNEY ON HOW TO COUNT. I APOLOGIZE. THAT’S OK. THAT’S OK THEY DON’T NECESSARY TO YOUR NET DISREGARD THAT IT’S ABOUT AMENDMENT THAT’S OK. I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT. NO NO >>I MOVE TO ELIMINATE THE PROPOSED RESTRICTIONS AS GROUND FOR AN EXCLUSION ORDER. >>BUT THE OTHER PORTIONS OF THE ORDINANCE ALSO ALSO WOULD APPLY THERE. OK. SECOND I ASK OK COUNSELOR YOU WANT TO EXPLAIN THAT MOTION SO >>THIS THIS WOULD REMOVE THE EXCLUSION ZONE COUPLING WITH THIS >>ORDINANCE SHOULD THE ORDINANCE ITSELF PASS THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY BACK TWO YEARS AGO. THE PRIMARY >>REASON THAT I WORK TO KILL THIS THING THE FIRST TIME IS BECAUSE I WAS CONCERNED >>ABOUT THESE STREETS TO JAIL PIPELINE >>AND I FEEL LIKE THCLUSION ZONE >>FACILITATES >>THAT PIPELINE AND I DON’T THINK WE NEED IT. AND I’M ALSO >>CONCERNED ABOUT THE UN EVEN RULES >>THAT WE’LL HAVE THROUGHOUT THTY. FOR INSTANCE IN MY AREA THERE IS A QUITE A LARGE >>HOMELESS POPULATION THERE ARE HOMELESS CAMPS IN A LOT OF PLACES ON THE STREETS HIDDEN FROM SIGHT ALL OVER >>AND I DON’T THINK THAT I DON’T THINK IT WHERE YOU CHOSE TO TO SURVIVE SHOULD BE IT SHOULD BE IMPACTED BY THIS ORDINANCE OR HOW IT’S HOW IT’S ENFORCED. SO TO ME >>THIS IS THE I WILL BE VOTING TO ELIMINATE THE EXCLUSION ZONES FROM FROM THE ORDINANCE. COUNCILLOR ANDERSON THANK YOU. THIS IS SOMETHING AS I’VE STRUGGLED WITH AND I I THINK I HAVE MORE CLARITY ON IT AFTER THE DISCUSSION WE HAD AMONG THE STAFF TONIGHT THAT THERE ARE STILL OTHER CONDUCTS DOWNTOWN AREA THAT WILL GET PEOPLE EXCLUDED. AND I WOULD ALSO SAY THAT AS I UNDERSTAND THE ORDINANCE IF THE PART THAT THE CAMPING PART OF THIS ORDINANCE IS PASSED THAT WILL THEN >>BECOME ANOTHEACTIVITY THAT WILL >>WITHOUT THIS EXCLUSION ZONE WILL STILL BE SUBJECT PEOPLE TO BE EXCLUDED FROM DOWNTOWN AND BECAUSE IT’S A LAW THAT’S THAT’S WHAT I’M A LITTLE CONFUSED ON TALKING TO ERIC AND THE ATTORNEY >>SO THE CRIME PREVENTION ZONE HAS AS A SERIES OF OFFENSES THAT IF YOU COMMIT THAT OFFENSE YOU CAN BE SUBJECT YOU CAN HAVE AN EXCLUSION OR ISSUED AGAINST YOU. THIS ORDINANCE ADDS THE CAMPING PROHIBITION TO IT. SO IF YOU TAKE OUT IF YOU ADOPT THE MOTION THAT COUNSELOR WHO YOU JUST MADE CAMPING WOULD NOT BE SUBJECT TO AN EXCLUSION ORDER? OKAY? THAT MAKES IT MORE MORE CONFUSING. MORRISON YEAH >>I COULD SEE MY. SO EVEN IF WE WERE TO PASS THE ORDINANCE SAYING YOU CANNOT CAMP IN ANYPLACE IN THE CITY WHICH IS THE WAY I THINK THIS ORDINANCE WOULD BE IF YOU’RE CAMPING DOWNTOWN THAT WOULD NOT THEN BE A GROUND TO BE >>EXCLUDED FROM DOWNTOWN. THAT IS CORRECT. OK. EVERYBODY KNOW I GUESS >>I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION I SUPPOSE THAT THERE COULD >>BE AN AMENDMENT WHERE WE >>COULD SAY THAT IF YOU ARE CAMPING IN THE DOWNTOWN ZONE THAT MAKES YOU SUBJECT TO EXCLUSION THERE’LL BE THE ORIGINAL THOSE THWE’RE AMENDING WOULD INCLUDE CAMPING. OK OK. IN OTHER WORDS YOU WOULD VOTE NO ON THIS IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FOLLOW THAT PATH SO IF >>I WANT SOMEBODY WHO’S CAMPING TO BE EXCLUDED I WOULD WANT TO LEAVE THE EXCLUSION IN HERE IF I DON’T WANT SOMEBODY. OK NOW I’VE GOT IT. NOW I STILL HAVE TO DECIDE WHICH WAY I’M GOING TO VOTE. BUT NOW AT LEAST I UNDERSTAND WHAT MY VOTE WILL MEAN? OH GREAT? CATS ARE NAKED? THANK YOU MR. QUESTION THAT IN THAT REGARDS CAMPING >>WE WILL POST AND THAT THAT TENT OR STRUCTURE WITHEN FOR A CITATION. CORRECT. OR IS IT >>IMMEDIATELY I SEE A TENT. I COULD CITE THEM IF SO IF THE AUDIENCE SAYS PAST IF THE POLICE FIND A CAMP SOMEONE THERE THEY WOULD TELL NEEDS TO BE REMOVED. IF THEY WOULD GIVE THEM 24 HOURS NOTICE TO REMOVE IT PARTICULARLY IF THE CAMP IS UNOCCUPIED. WHEN THEY FIND IT? WE HAVE A POLICY RIGHT NOW THAT PROVIDES FOR 24 THEY CAN COLLECT THEIR WHERE BELONGINGS AND WHATNOT. CORRECT. SO IT WILL COME BACK TO BEHAVIOR N AT THAT PERIOD OF TIME EITHER I CHOOSE PURPOSELY NOT TO MOVE MY STRUCTURE WITHIN 24 HOURS AND >>THAT WOULD BE GROUNDS FOR EXCLUSION. JUST CAMPING DOWNTOWN WOULD NOT? AND THEY COULD MOVE THERE BECAUSE YEAH LONG AS I >>MOVE WITHIN 24 HOURS I FEEL LIKE CHIEF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT NOW. YOU WON’T TALK ABOUT IT. NO. OK. >>YOU HAVE A QUESTION YOU HAVEN’T ANSWERED. BUT KESSLER >>NOR SURE. SO JUST TO CLARIFY >>THE CAMPING PROHIBITION IS S.R. C 9 5 7 3 0 AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE SECTION OF THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE THAT DISCUSSES VIOLATIONS IT IDENTIFIES THAT 5 7 3 0 IS IDENTIFIED AS A INFRACTION NOT AS A CRIMINAL PENALTY AND IF IT WERE TO BE MOVED TO BECA CRIMINAL MISDEMEANOR THEN WE GET INTO THE CONSTITUTIONALITY ISSUES OF CRIMINALIZING CAMPAIGN WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM IN MY OPINION FROM A CONSTITUTIONAL PERSPECTIVE THEN MAKING IT AN INFRACTION WHICH IS NOT IN MY OPINION RAISES SAME CONSTITUTIONALITY ISSUES SO CONCERNED. IS IT OK THEN. I MEAN I WANT TO KIND I UNDERSTAND WHY HERE. WHAT DO YOU FOUND. >>I’M JUST TRYING TO MAKE SURE I THAT I’M JUST TRYING TO OFFER MY OWN UNDERSTANDINAND IF SOMEONE CAN IF I’M WRONG ON THAT BUT THAT’S HOW I READ THAT IT’S OK. I’M JUST HOPING THAT IS HELPFUL TOO. YEAH IT IS OTHERS WHO ARE TRYING TO INTERPRET THE SAME CODE PROVISIONS WHICH ARE NOT ALWAYS WRITTEN VERY YOU KNOW THEY THEY’RE WRITTEN BY LAWYERS FOR LAWYERS SOMETIMES SIR SO HERE’S THE QUESTION. WE’VE HEARD A LOT OF COMMENT ABOUT THE SITUATION BY ARCHER’S SO IF WE IF THERE IS NOT. WELL FIRST OF ALL I THINK THE AREA BY ARCHES IS NOT IN THE DOWNTOWN ZONE >>SO EVEN IF WE >>HAD AN EXCLN IN THE DOWNTOWN >>ZONE IT WOULD NOT APPLY TO ARCHES AND IF WE HAD A CITYWIDE >>ORDINANCE AGAINST CAMPING >>ALL WOULD END UP AS COUNCILLOR NANCY HE SAYS WE >>WOULD CITE OPLE WIT THE POSSIBILITY >>OF AN INFRACTION AND THEN PEOPLE WOULD MOVE AND THEY COULD THEY WOULD COULD SET UP A TENT SOMEPLACE >>ELSE INCLUDING IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA BECAUSE THEY COULD EXCLUDED FROM DOWNTOWN >>THAT MAY BE A COMPOUND QUESTION. TALKING LIKE ONE LAWYER OR ANOTHER LAWYER SO UNDER THE CURRENT PROPOSAL NOT COUNTING THE MOTION TO AMEND TO REMOVE THE EXCLUSION ZONE IF SOMEONE IS CITED OUTSID THE EXCLUSION ZONE WE COULD STILL POST IT. AND IN AND REMOVE IT IF IT’S STILL THERE AFTER 24 HOURS EXCLUSION IF IT HAPPENS IN THE EXCLUSION ZONE AND THERE IS PEATED REPEATED VIOLATIONS WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO EXCLUDE IT FROM THAT OF COURSE THE CONSEQUENCE MIGHT BE THEY MOVE OUTSIDE THE EXCLUSION ZONE. OK. SO I’M GETTING SOME CLARITY ON THIS NOW SO IF IN FACT PEOPLE ARE CITED FOR CAMPING ANYWHERE IN THE CITY THE CITY WOULD HAVE >>THE AUTHORITY TO REMOVE THE TENTS RIGHT. OK. OK. BY READY TO VOTE NOW THIS IS ON THE EXCLUSION ZONE. IF YOU WANT TO KIND OF RESTATE IT THANK YOU MR. >>MAYOR. I. MY MOTION WAS TO ELIMINATE THE PROPOSED RESTRICTIONS AS GROUNDS FOR AN EXCLUSION ORDER. SO THIS WOULD DECOUPLE >>THIS NEW ORDINANCE FROM EXCLUSION WOULD LEAVE THE CURRENT LAW REGARDING EXCLUSIONS AS IS COUNCILLOR. NOR >>CAN I. I’M STILL CONFUSED. BY VOTING IT’S THE TWO >>LAWYERS WHO ARE MOST CONFUSED HERE. WELL YOU KNOW WE ANT TO GET RIGHT EXACTLY IN HERE. YEAH EXACTLY. OK COUNCILLOR. COUNCILLOR COULD YOU EXPLAIN NOW I JUST WANT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT >>IS THE VFX THE EFFECT OF THIS MOTION. IF PASSED WOULD WOULD NOT REMOVE THE CAMPING BAN? IT CAN’T BE BANNED WOULD STILL BE IN. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOOD >>CORRECT CAMPING BAN WOULD STILL BE SUPPORTIVE OF THE CAMPING. IT CAN’T BE ME I WOULD STILL BE IN IT WOULD MAKE THE ESSENTIALLY WOULD MAKE THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE CAMPING BAN EQUAL THROUGHOUT THE CITY. THAT’S WHAT THIS >>IF YOU VOTE YES FOR THIS THAT’S WHAT THAT WOULD DO. COUNCILLOR CASEY THANK YOU. >>JUST TO ADD MAYBE TO HELP CLARIFY TOO. THERE ALREADY IS A CRIME PREVENTION DISTRICT COMMONLY CALLED THE EXCLUSION ZONE. HERE’S ONE IN DOWNTOWN THERE’S ONE IN NORTH SALEM SO THIS MOTION SAYS CAMPING IS NOT ADDED TO THAT CRIME PREVENTION DISTRICT AS A AS A AS AN OFFENSE OR A VIOLATION. SO EVERYTHING >>WOULD REMAIN EXACTLY AS IT IS NOW AS PERTAINS TO THE CRIME PREVENTION DISTRICT. BOTH OF THEM OK. ALL RIGHT. READY ALL >>THOSE IN FAVOR SAY I OPPOSE GO GO POST. OK. WHAT’S NEXT. THANK YOU MR. MAYOR. I OVE >>TO MODIFY THE ORDINANCE TO SPECIFY THAT THE RESTRICTIONS WILL EXPIRE SEPTEMBER 30TH 2020 SECOND SECOND THANK >>U. THIS IS BASICALLY IS JUST ADDING A SUNSET. THERE WERE SOME INDICATION IN SOME PEOPLE MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN HAVING A REVIEW PERIOD. THIS WOULD CREATE A HREVIEW PERIOD >>I DO KNOW THAT THE CITY IF THIS OANCE PASSES THE STAFF INTENDS TO PROVIDE UPDATES BUT ADDING AN ACTUAL SUNET WOULD MAKE THE COUNCIL TAKE ACTION FOR IT TO CONTINUE. TO REOPEN IN A AWAY ONE MIGHT LOOK AT CANCER. CANCER >>THANK YOU MR. MAYOR. I DON’T SUPPORT THIS AMENDMENT. I THINK TO REOPEN THIS AND 10 MONTHS IS GOING TO REOPEN THIS WHOLE CONVERSATION AGAIN I THINK GETTING REVIEWS FROM FROM STAFF IS COMPLETELY APPROPRIATE. AND IF COUNSEL DECIDES THAT WE NEED TO TAKE ACTION THEN WE CAN TAKE ACTION. BUT I DON’T THINK THAT WE NEED A HARD SUNSET DAN ORDER TO DO THAT COUNCILLOR ANDERSON AT THE WORK >>SESSION I WAS IN FAVOR >>OF THE SUNSET PROVISION BUT LISTENING TO WHAT MY FELLOW COUNCILLORS SAY >>AND ALSO BECAUSE OF THE OTHER AMENDMENTS THAT WE MADE TO THE STATUTE I WOULD BE SATISFIED WITH A SERIOUS HARD REVIEW AT THE END OF NEXT SUMMER. SO WE CAN SEE WHERE THINGS ARE. BUT I DON’T I’M NOT IN FAVNYMORE OF A SUNSET RIGHT FURTHER DISCUSSION. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION TO READ. GO >>AHEAD SAY IT AGAIN MOVE >>TO MODIFY THE ORGANS TO SPECIFY THAT THE RESTRICTIONS WILL EXPIRE SEPTEMBER 30TH 2020 >>SO YOU’RE ADDING >>A SUNSET ADDING >>A SUNSET ON SEPTEMBER 30TH 2020 CORRECT. >>ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF ADDING A SUNSET DATE CERTAIN SAY I. ALL OPPOSED OK. WHO’S FOR IT. GOT TO. AND HE OWNED REST OR NOW SAID IT IN THE MAIN MOTION THAT HE HAS. NOW WE’RE GONNA WE’VE GOT AN AMEN MOTION NOW ON THE FLOOR. COUNCILLOR IN OTHER WORDS EVERYTHING YOU’VE DOS NOW ON THE FLOOR AS AN AMENDED MOTION. RIGHT. RIGHT. IF I CAN IF I CAN RESTATE WHERE I THINK THE ORDINANCE IS RIGHT NOW. THE RESTRICTIONS ON SAID LIE HAVE BEEN REMOVED THE ADDITION OF THESE OFFENCES TO THE EXCLUSION ZONE HAVE BEEN REMOVED. AND AT THIS POINT IT WILL CONTINUE INDEFINITELY. CAN YOU >>I’M SORRY. AND THERE’S AN EMERGENCY CLAUSE WOULD YOU SAY THAT ONE MORE TIME PLEASE. THE WHOLE LIST. SO THE ORDINANCE DOES NOT INCLUDE A RESTRICTION ON SITTING IN LINE ON PUBLIC SIDEWALKS DOES NOT INCLUDE A RESTRICTION ON SITTING IN I’M GETTING A LOOK FROM COUNCILLOR HOY. IS THERE CONFUSION ON THAT POINT. YES. >>WHAT’S IT YES IT PROHIBITS CAMPING AND PUBLIC SIDEWALKS IN PUBLIC PLACES. AND THAT’S ABOUT IT. OKAY. >>SO WHAT’S LAUGH IS I ATTENDED PERSONAL PROPERTY RIGHT AND I ATTENDED PERSONAL PROPERTY PROPERTY RIGHT. YEAH. YEAH. THE UNNDED PERSONAL PROPERTY IS APPARENTLY CALCULATED A VERSMALL. OK. THAT’S >>THE MARSH COUNCILLOR LOOP THAT’S THE MOTION THAT’S ON THE FLOOR. COUNCILLOR LEWIS >>YEAH I. BEFORE WE MOVE ANY FURTHER I HAVE A SUBSTITUTE MOTION I MOVE STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS SECOND BY MAKING YOU KNOW WE I THERE’S NOT A LOT LEFT TO SAY I AM FOR ME >>THIS COMES DOWN TO A MATTER OF TRUST I RECOGNISE THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE OF OUR FOLKS ARE IN I TRULY BELIEVE THAT AS PROPOSED IS TO GIVE THE LAW ENFORCEMENT FOLKS A TOOL THAT WILL BENEFIT ALL INVOLVED THANKS YEAH. I’M GOING TO SUPPORT THE MOTION TO I BELIEVE THAT FIRST THE FIRST PROPOSAL IS THE ONE BROUGHT BY THE CHIEF I HAVE ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE THIS IS NOT BEING BROUGHT JUST TO CREATE A LONG EVENING FOR US SO I THINK THIS IS A TOOL THE POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS BELIEVED NOW FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS IT NEEDS TO CUT AND IT HAS NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HOMELESSNESS AND WHAT WE’RE DOING AND ACTUALLY DEALING WITH THE HOMELESS ISSUES IT DEALS WITH BEHAVIORAL ISSUES THAT REQUIRE AND HAVE HAVEBEEN PROMPTED TO BRING IN POLICE ACTION AND THEY NEED THEY NEED A TOOL THAT ASSIST THEM SO BUT BUT TO TRY TO THE MOST THOUGHT WAS ABSOLUTELY ING I UNRELATED TO THIS AND DEALT WITH QUESTIONS OF WHO ARE THEY WHERE DO THEY COME FROM IN THE HOMELESS COMMUNITY AND I’M JUST NOT BUYING THAT THAT’S WHAT THIS IS ABOUT THIS IS ABOUT PEOPLE IN THE HOMELESS COMMUNITY BEHAVING BADLY AND INTERFERING WITH THE NORMAL OF ACTIVITYOUR RESIDENTIAL BUSINESS DISTRICT DOWNTOWN IN WARD 1 AND I THINK IT’S DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED AND WE REALLY HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO DEAL WITH IT COUNCILLOR ANDERSON THANK >>YOU I HAVE A POINT OF ORDER FOR THE CITY ATTORNEY IT SEEMS TO ME THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION IS THE SAME AS THE ORIGINAL MOTION AND WE’VE ALREADY MAE AMENDMENTS TO THE ORIGINAL MOTION SO I’M JUST E IN PARLIAMENT TERRELL LEE IS THAT >>PROPER IN EFFECT AREN’T WE VOTING >>ON THE ORIGINAL MOTION AGAIN OR CAN WE COMMIT VOTE ON THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION I GUESS I BELIEVE YOU CAN.

NOW WE’RE BACK TO >>THE AMENDED MOTION ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION IN IT’S BETTER THAN NOTHING YET. THAT’S UP IT’S >>CLOSE TO BUT BETTER THAN NOTHING. HOW SEVERE CAN THE SECOND PART OF THE AMENDMENT BE IT’S BLAMED AGAIN FOR THE EXCLUSION PART. YEAH PLEASE WOULD YOU IF THE INFRACTIONS OF CAMPING AND LEAVING PERSONAL PROPERTY UNATTENDED ARE NOT SUBJECT TO AN EXCLUSION OK THIS IS REALLY THE ANTI CAMPING CITY WIDE PUBLIC PROPERTY. SORRY THAT’S ESSENTIALLY >>WHAT THEAL RESULT OF THIS ORDINANCE IS GOING TO BE IS WHERE WE ESTABLISHING THAT CAMPING BAN AND ESTABLISHING A MECHANISM TO DEAL WITH PROPERTY THAT’S LEFT. CORRECT. THOSE ARE THE TWO PIECES OF THIS ORDINANCE THAT ARE REMAINING RIGHT TO CRIMINAL ACTS BY THE EXCLUSION. AND THEY’RE NOT >>SEPARATE TO THE EXCLUSION ZONES. SO >>I GUESS THE FOLLOW UP QUESTION I HAVE ABOUT RESTRICTING LIVING PERSONAL PROPERTY >>IS A CERTAIN TIMEFRAME WHERE IF LET’S JUST SAY THEY WENT TO THE RESTROOM THEY LEFT IT >>OUTSIDE YOU’RE SAYING YEAH. OH YEAH SO THE ORDINANCE WOULD MAKE IT UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO KNOWINGLY LEAVE PERSONAL PROPERTY UNATTENDED ON A PUBLIC SIDEWALK BETWEEN 7:00 A.M. AND 9 P.M.. DOESN’T APPLY TO PERSONAL PROPERTY LEFT UNATTENDED ON A SIDEWALK FOR LESS THAN TWO HOURS THAT IS BEING ACTIVELY LOADED OR UNLOADED AND DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY PERSON PERFORMING A CITY APPROVED OR PERMTED ACTIVITY AND PERSONAL PROPERTY LEFT UNATTENDED MAY BE REMOVED IF A PROPERTY POSES AN IMMEDIATE THREAT TO PUBLIC HEALTH SAFETY OR WELFARE OR THE PROPERTY HAS BEEN POSTED FOR 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE IT’S YOUR BAIL.
