thanks Will. The Maddie's Cart Micro Landings proposal you mention, is there a more recent shareable version than the one dated March 20 2019 posted at https://maddiescart.org/shelter ? and if so, might you share it to the list, or to me?
As I see it, collectively we want to build up a toolbox of documentation & research on various existing or proposed approaches. Including, updating/developing them based on new learning. Often there are elements common to many or all, such as what current codes/laws allow, and what might be possible under future reforms (e.g. Shelter to Housing Continuum Project, or Oregon #HB2001 implementation).
[incidentally, both Village Collaborative and HousingWiki projects I work on do such collaborative researching/authoring, in a shareable way, so it is possible we could use or pool effort with them].
Some questions about the proposal:
1) Are you suggesting use of City right-of-way areas generally, or is it just the proposed pilot site is such?
In any case, others such as Keith Jones (of Lloyd Community Association & PDX Green Loop) have recommended looking at public right-of-way as a good option, building on earlier practices such as food carts. So generally, do you or others see particularl advantages, possibilities, and difficulties with using City of Portland right-of-way, vs say other City land that isn't ROW. Is State i.e. ODOT land or right-of-way also a possibility?
2) the proposed pilot site at 1988 SE 3rd Ave, Portland, OR 97214. Isn't this zoned for industrial use, like the parcel across the street inititially proposed for Right 2 Dream Too siting, which the Central Eastside Industrial Council successfully challenged at Land Use Board of Appeals as being non-allowed "community facility" use? Does your proposal employ a different planned zoning/land-use permitting?
I agree… BRAVO!!!!.....you
did a very good job on the slide presentation. I am keeping track of the work
via Sean Green and his work with the NECN.
We (Maddie’s Cart) have a “managed camping” proposal we are reviewing
with the City for 15-20 residents as Sean has probably reviewed with you. Waiting
for more feedback from the Mayor’s office.
One small step at a time
with the City!!!!

work, Tim!!! I am very impressed with this presentation and your ability
to capture it, as well as your focus on building broader coalitions and making
this plan a “win-win” for elected officials and people engaged in homeless
services. Thank you!
as mentioned last
week, we presented on Weds Aug 5 a "Community Proposal on Alternative
Shelter & Villages" to Portland / Multnomah County's
homelessness policy board, A Home For Everyone (to the Coordinating Board, 28-member board which advises
the Executive Committee. ).
is posted at AHFE Coordinating Board page under meetings, and at: http://ahomeforeveryone.net/s/CB_Community_Proposal_20200805.pdf.
Below are the first two of the 12 slides.
It seemed to get a good response. Joint Office of Homeless Services director
Marc Jolin discussed it with us, we had many follow-up questions from the AHFE
board at the meeting, and in writing from MultCo Commissioner Meieran's and
MultCo Co-chair Kafoury's office inviting further conversation.
This presentation was pulled together on the day of the meeting, and was titled
so just because it's how the AHFE's agenda had it -- so this certainly isn't
the last word on plans or messaging. It gave us a helpful prompt to make a
concise and clear published expression for one point in time, but your thoughts
on where to go next and how we might present next time are welcome.
