This has been standard procedure for the last 40 years, no doubt
Unless we can generate some widespread collaboration,
spearheading participant driven, uplifting, permanent living, and
dare i say livelihood opportunities for an increasing majority,
and especially the most in need, such as people with no home at
all, i sadly see little evidence for change.
If we can spearhead such a quest, i see gov and the private sector
then providing the no skin off their back help, that they can
offer, and we could use well.

Exactly, Joseph. There's a huge windfall of
funding, and it's being directed exclusively to new street
outreach particularly cleanup/clearance, and congregate shelter
that we know much of unhoused population won't go to. While
still NOT creating safe, legal places sufficient for everyone to
Thousands of Portland's most needy and marginalized people
continue to live in daily fear, denied the most basic rights
of security and space, while huge spending goes to new
salaries and contracts to the sector managing it.
Meanwhile, the houseless and wide swathes of allied
community are eager and ready to work on, and are working
on, more self-determining, self-governed "spaces of hope",
places of regeneration -- how are the city & county
priorities/policies helping this?
including raising the question of how this direction
could meet muster with Boise v. Martin
ruling and new Oregon law HB 3115
which will soon
make city laws widely challengeable if they enable camp
clearances in the absence of sufficient alternative legal
places to be.
** CITY COUNCIL BUDGET WORK SESSION - 2PM TODAY **
Today at 2pm, the Portland City Council will be
holding a vitally important work session around the

I wish they would stop wasting money on sweeps
until people actually have somewhere better to go. That
continues to feel like throwing money away to make lives
more difficult when people are already clearly struggling.

HOW TO GIVE PUBLIC COMMENT
Starting with the April 7 meeting, "Members of the public will not be able to participate directly outside of public comments, but will be able to hear and see meeting participants and shared materials. The meeting will be accessible 15 minutes prior to the start time.
"Attendees may submit comment in writing to AHFE@... to be read aloud by Joint Office Staff, or provide their comment verbally. Time allotted for public comments is up to five people, two minute limit per person. An additional period for public comment has been added at the end of the agenda."
[formerly, public participants could use the Zoom chat channel to comment, ask questions, discuss, or add notes. For spoken Public Comment, it is not quite clear how speaking slots are now requested or assigned - try emailing AHFE@...?].
