Addressing Homelessness in Public Spaces Workshop

The League of Oregon Cities is hosting four regional workshops focusing on how public entities can address homelessness in their public spaces.  Each half-day workshop will provide attendees with information on the following:

  • How a public entity can manage its property in a way that respects each of its community members, but also complies with recent federal court decisions and newly enacted Oregon laws;
  • How cities can effectively and collaboratively work with interested partners and community members to ensure any regulations of their public spaces are inclusive and in the best interests of all residents; and
  • Identifying the barriers local governments face in addressing homelessness in their public spaces, and pinpointing the resources each community needs to respond to this crisis.

Each workshop will begin at 10:30 a.m. and conclude no later than 3 p.m.  Lunch will be provided. These workshops are free events, but preregistration is required.
