Safe Sleep Sites

An aerial view of the Safe Sleep site at 310 Garfield St. in Eugene.

On April 28, 2021, the Eugene City Council approved an ordinance to create more safe and lawful places for people to sleep. The ordinance allows for the temporary establishment of “safe parking” and “safe tent” sites that could provide options for individuals to legally park their vehicles or sleep in tents. These sites may accommodate a larger number of vehicles or tents than previously allowed by code, up to 60 vehicles or up to 40 tents. The sites are managed by social service providers who are responsible for compliance with rules and community agreements, monitoring who is allowed to be on-site, coordinating ongoing site infrastructure needs, being accessible and responsive to neighbor concerns, and coordinating with the City and other partners. The ordinance is in effect until June 30, 2025, unless extended.
