EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene City Council will discuss the issue of homeless camping at its meeting Monday night. The focus will be about a proposed pilot project.
Mayor Kitty Piercy says the project proposed by councilors will include looking at one or more sites to allow overnight camping. Guidelines will include no more than 15 people at one site and if campers can stay during the day or have to move out every morning.
“The city manager has put forward an amended kind of proposal again, but would have more flexibility about if this is good, other sites could follow,” Mayor Piercy said.
If the proposal gets approved, Mayor Piercy says the 90 day pilot program will start with one site first.
