Petition: rescind dangerous homeless camping ordinance!

A few months ago, the City of Austin passed an ordinance that allows homeless people to camp in public spaces (excluding private property, parks and City Hall).

The result has been chaos.

Homeless people are camping on sidewalks downtown (in front of businesses), there have been several violent attacks, and they continue to camp in parks and on private property, believing that they either won’t be reported to police or police won’t remove them.

It is time to rescind this policy which is bad for tourism, the Austin economy, public safety and public health.
