Some great reporting on that in the Camera by Sam Lounsberry: dailycamera.com/2019/12/30/bou…
Elise Edson: "Boulder can’t seem to house the ppl dying on the street." A record number of unhoused people (48) died this year; about twice the average.
"It's morally reprehensible for any of you to sit up there and allow one more person to die in the city of Boulder bc they can't use a sleeping bag ... raincoat.. tarp."
What's going on with this? Someone enlighten me.
1. The city cannot make sleeping on public property illegal unless there are legal sleeping sites available
2. City may not impose conditions beyond reasonable conduct related to function of venues
3. These rules apply to everyone, not just "residents"
Many people have "no legal sleep options," Cohen says.
Staff not sure; they'll check.
Jane Brautigam: Our lobbyist, Carl Castillo, doesn't know. But it could be added in March.
