OAKLAND, CA – Rebecca Kaplan’s City Council Resolution to encourage the community development of expanded housing options in the City of Oakland is before the elected officials April 10th. On that day, the Community and Economic Development Committee and the Life Enrichment Committee will hear her plan.
The Kaplan Resolution, which can be read here, directs the City to support community based organizations – including faith-based organizations and other non-profits organizations – seeking to provide temporary shelter and sanitation services on their properties, identify funding sources and public land for these efforts, and ease requirements so more housing alternatives can be provided.
Councilmember Kaplan says: “As the City of Oakland struggles with a burgeoning housing and homelessness crisis, we must support both public and private efforts to increase shelter options, promote dignity, and minimize disease and suffering amongst all Oakland residents. That is why I have authored this Resolution to encourage and support the community development of expanded housing options, by ensuring that our City’s laws are being effectively utilized to create meaningful solutions and serve our most vulnerable populations.”
The Resolution will be heard at the April 10th Community and Economic Development Committee (Number 3 on the Agenda), which begins at 1:30 pm, and the Life Enrichment Committee (Number 9 on the Agenda), which begins at 4 pm, at Oakland City Hall.
Kaplan is also authoring a funding plan for homeless solutions – a vacant property tax. Click here to read that report.
