Now the new rules have finally been issued. Sweeps will continue, but for any three or more encampments:
- Campers on public property will get 72 hours notice that a sweep will take place.
- Personal belongings will be stored for up to 60 days
- Outreach workers will be sent to the camps before the sweep to help plug residents into services.
- The city will add 20 more shelter beds.
