At their Monday, December 7, 2009 meeting, City Council approved a motion: To form a citizens’ advisory committee to provide a recommendation to City Council within one-hundred twenty days, adding the decision of whether or not a campground is warranted to their list of responsibilities stated in the administrative staff report.
The Task Force is charged with answering the following questions:
What funds will be used to pay for the campground?
Would the campground be permanent or temporary?
How long would people be allowed to camp there?
What kind of facilities would be at the campground and would they be ADA accessible?
What locational criteria should be used to assure access to services and avoidance of neighborhood conflict?
Should the campground accommodate the “290” (registered sex offenders) or should it be targeted to other homeless populations?
What other organizations could be partners in operating the campground and serving its users?
Is a campground warranted or not?
