More liberal insanity: Portland Considers “Mandatory Rest Spaces” For The Homeless On Private Property


Recommended Posts

Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings. (KATU News)

 

The Planning and Sustainability Commission is hoping to define its guidelines that are spurring controversy. Some worry a change to the city of Portland’s design review process to allow people to “rest” on private property could lead to camping. On Nov. 12, the commission narrowly approved a change to the design process language to say, “Provide opportunities to rest and be welcome.”

 

The obvious questions are already being raised. What specifically does “rest” mean in this context? Does that mean that new buildings will have to include spaces for the “unhoused” (their word) where they will be “protected from the weather?” That’s basically just an invitation for people to come trespass and stay there.

And he's not telling these cities and states that he's sending them his homeless.

 

The dems have been doing this with aliens too.
