I want to give you more tools. Would it be helpful to have a place you can safely camp, which is not the 9th Street bridge?
Apparently the city couldn't find a service provider for a safe campground.
BUT, to Weaver: Since it's been 7 yrs since you visited this, maybe the landscape has changed? Maybe there is a service provider who will step up.
(There is no women's shelter in Boulder)
Again, disclosure: EFAA pays me.
Staff has already said they're against more services AND a working group, so...?
Friend: If the system is an adequate way to handle these suggestions, why isn't stuff coming up through it already?
Firnhaber: New things are coming up.
Compared to how many planning staff, climate staff, open space staff (that's ~100) etc. That's where you can really see the city's priorities. That and budget.
Firnhaber: We're not having conversations about lifting the camping ban.
"It just seems a bit out of whack to me."
Firnhaber: There's a greater risk of death when ppl outside. So we want to move ppl into housing.
Firnhaber: I think the challenge is that some ppl don't want to get involved in services. We still want to make sure they're safe.
Friend: Starting this in 3Q sounds late if we're adding this to 2020 work plan.
Weaver: Well before.
Brautigam: April 14 is the next available study session.
First neighborhood she's referencing is Steelyards.
First responsibility is to make public spaces safe for all.
Weinheimer: It's in a floodway; I don't think so.
Brautigam: Absolutely, we would only do it the way (he) described. That's the most humane.
"Interpretation" in that case has never been followed by another court and I doubt the 10th Circuit will, he says.
Brockett saying he will support cleaning encampments but only if we have severe weather shelter open every night of the winter.
