In any contract the premise is based on a meeting of the minds in that both sides would benefit to some degree.
It’s been a few years since I created this GNA for the now defunct camp. A few people set up tents on PBOT land without authorization from the city (Occupy the land now and ask forgiveness later). A former local Pastor (who did not reside there) set it up and created the Code of Conduct. As I stated in the aforementioned it turned out to not be Worth the paper it was written on despite his honorable efforts. I talked with him about the Good Neighbor Agreement. Each side would agree to the terms of the agreement and negative actions would not be taken by either side unless the terms of the GNA were violated.
Even if it could not be adjudicated in the traditional sense a Civil Court would be obliged to hear the merits of an agreement that has been “Grandathered” in.
Since this particular sanction camp violated the terms of the GNA immediately it became moot and would not even been considered. Until a significant time has passed do you have something Grandathered in nothing may be actionable but the surrounding community would feel a bit more secure and would be more receptive. The NAV center has saved countless lives but they faceed (and continue to face) some pushback. Some misguided community members feel it’s much safer to have people living in desperation on the streets instead of being in places of safety. You can’t confuse some people with logic.
