Safe Parking Strategy Update

RVs and pavement

At their regularly scheduled Council meeting on June 1, the Fremont City Council approved the introduction of an ordinance to allow safe parking at assembly uses, nonprofits, and public sites. The development of the ordinance is the first step of a three-prong “Safe Parking Strategy” in order to provide additional assistance and services to unhoused people living in their vehicles. The introduced ordinance would create a City permitting process by which community organizations can apply to become a “safe parking host site” and host unhoused people in parking lots at their properties. The ordinance contains specific standards that all host sites must follow in order to ensure that participants receive adequate services and that sites have minimal impacts on nearby neighbors.

City staff is also moving forward with developing a program to support organizations in becoming safe parking host sites through assisting with the provision of temporary facilities, site coordination, and social services. Staff will be finalizing information about this program, including standards for screening and intake of participants, and returning to City Council for their input later this summer. To learn more about the City’s “Safe Parking Strategy,” visit our Safe Parking webpage or contact staff by email.
