Safe Parking Strategy Update

On February 16, 2021, City staff presented their proposed Safe Parking Strategy to the Fremont City Council. The proposed Strategy consists of three programs to provide designated secure parking areas in Fremont for unhoused people living in their vehicles:

  1.  A private host site program to allow faith-based sites to provide safe parking
  2. A sanctioned parking program that provides services where people are currently parked
  3. A City-operated safe parking site program with comprehensive wrap-around services

The City Council directed staff to proceed immediately with developing the first option, a private host site program, and to return to the Council at a later date with additional information about the other proposed programs. 

The private host site program will allow a limited number of operable vehicles to park within existing parking lots, typically at faith-based organizations or non-profits, through an administrative City permitting process. Over the next month, City staff will continue working with faith leaders to develop an ordinance with operational and development standards for permitting these private safe parking sites. Staff plans to take the ordinance to the City’s Planning Commission for a recommendation in April 2021, prior to bringing it before the Council for consideration later in the spring.

For updates and additional information about the Safe Parking Strategy, please visit the City's webpage or contact staff by email.
