Though the consulting with homeless people hasn’t started yet, some notions of what should be built into the space are percolating, she said.

At the moment, there are no plans for outdoor bathrooms, which foster safety concerns, Levy said.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Thousands of showers, meals, clothing and toiletries have been provided to those experiencing homelessness in downtown Sacramento, all thanks to a local man and his mobile shower service operated by volunteers.

Existing language bans daytime camping and limits public sleeping in limited zones to overnight hours between an hour before sunset and 7 a.m., expected to be pushed back to an hour after sunrise but no later than 8 a.m. after coming amendments. Other pending amendments include removing encampment allowances along Swanton Boulevard and in open spaces within Delaveaga Park, Pogonip, Arana Gulch and Moore Creek. Narrowly allowed private residential property, faith institution and private business parking lots and sidewalks in city commercial corridors and industrial areas in the far Westside, Harvey West and Seabright neighborhoods would remain available, however.
