City of Fremont Launching Safe Parking Strategy and Seeking Community Input

The opening of the City of Fremont’s Housing Navigation Center in September 2020 was a significant step forward in addressing homelessness in the Fremont community. Now that the Navigation Center is operational and at capacity, the City is prioritizing the development of programs that serve a different portion of the homeless population: people living in vehicles.

To better address the needs of people living in their vehicles, the City of Fremont is launching a Safe Parking Strategy. The Strategy will describe and recommend different programmatic options that the City could pursue to offer safe and sanitary areas where homeless residents residing in vehicles could park.

According to the 2019 Alameda County Point-in-Time Count, the total number of people living in vehicles in Fremont increased by 266% between 2017 and 2019. “Safe parking” is a crisis response to provide services and support to the growing number of people living in their vehicles. The idea is to provide people living in their vehicles with a designated place to park that is secure and provides access to health and safety amenities. Safe parking offers program participants greater stability so they can focus on finding reliable permanent housing.

To start the process of developing a Safe Parking Strategy, the City is seeking the community’s input. To learn more and access the community survey, visit our safe parking webpage. The survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete and will remain open through December 2020.
