Summer Workforce Camping

Every summer, our housing crisis gets even worse, and more of our employees are camping up Curtis Canyon or illegally on town streets. While obviously the most important priority is building long-term homes and apartments, we need to also do something about the situation we have right now.

Shelter JH urges the Town Council to consider ordinances that allow summer camping in public parking lots and provide associated facilities to protect the public health, safety and welfare of its constituents. This short-term answer to our housing crisis is necessary until long-term solutions can be implemented.

What you can do:

  • Email our mayor and town council at and let them know your own personal take on why this would be helpful. Have you camped up Curtis? Do you have friends hiding around town? Why would this make your life, or the lives of people you care about, better?
