Solution 9: Reclaiming Spaces from Illegal Encampments

We propose a campaign that there is no free camping in our public parks and waterways. Illegal camps are taking a toll on our city resources. We encourage citizens to update illegal camp locations on the RPD website. We want to utilize the efforts of the new Reserve Officer Program to assist in the processing of illegal camps, and in supervising camp cleanups. This will allow cleanup to occur more often — without drawing police officers away from the work of keeping our city streets and public spaces safe.

Call to Action:

Report any new encampments on the Redding Police website:

Real Estate professionals can acquire ‘consents to enforce’ from absent private property owners who are unknowingly hosting encampments.
