GROUP FILES PETITION TO PLACE BEND HOMELESS CAMPS ON BALLOT

Bend’s homeless crisis may go before voters this fall. A newly filed petition would require a public vote to bar outdoor camps from within 1,000 feet of public schools as well as on specific sites. The measure would need nearly 11,000 voter signatures to make the November ballot. Opposition to a possible managed camp off Ninth Street initiated neighbors and concerned citizens to put the issue before voters. The measure would limit city funding and require voter approval for “certain kinds of homeless shelter sites" - including housing structures lacking a permanent foundation or modern indoor plumbing facilities.
