A visit to Camp Second Chance,
looking ahead to Wednesday’s community meeting
Myers Way Homeless Encampment Community Meeting
On Wednesday, February 1, 2017, at 7pm, the Director of Homelessness, George Scarola, will facilitate a community meeting with the Highland Park Neighborhood at the Joint Training Facility about the Myers Way Encampment. This is an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how the Mayor’s Office intends to implement the City Council requirements for the creation of a community advisory committee, an encampment operations plan, and resources that will be available to meet both the encampment residents and the neighborhood needs. The Emergency Order allow this encampment to operate for 12 months with an option to renew for an additional 12 months.
As discussed in last week’s blog post, the Council approved the Executive Order to stand up three new encampments. The new encampments make up one component of the Mayor’s Bridging the Gap to Pathways Home Initiative, which is the action plan to better address the immediate needs of people living unsheltered.

Dear Community Member,
Last month the city announced a plan to establish three additional sanctioned encampments to serve homeless people. That plan calls for sanctioning the current encampment at Myers Way (known as Camp 2nd Chance) and expanding it from 20 tents up to 50 tents. Sanctioned encampments are a temporary measure to provide people living without shelter a safer alternative place to live while caseworkers help them secure long-term stable housing. I have included the fact sheet and FAQs we distributed previously.
The City hosted a public meeting on December 8th to describe the plan and to listen to community concerns. The City is hosting a second public meeting on Wednesday, February 1st to provide further information and to address concerns that have been raised. We encourage you to attend.
