How Should Berkeley Deal with Homelessness on November 17? A Discussion

Friday November 06, 2015 - 02:25:00 PM

On November 17 Councilmember Linda Maio plans to introduce some new measures which some have characterized as criminalization of homelessness, and suggested that they would violate current HUD policies. The measures can be found here (Action21) and here (Action22). In the Public Comment section below, Santa Cruz Mayor Don Lane outlines how he wants his city to deal with homelessness, which is also a problem in that other college town, and Carol Denney discusses the new HUD rules. 

There are also articles on the topic by Denney and Councilmember Jesse Arreguin in last week's issue.
