Subject: Sidewalk Obstructions

This has been sent at the request of the Portland Police Bureau.

“Due to the increase in valid complaints of sidewalks and rights-of-way being obstructed by the tents and property of persons experiencing homelessness, thereby restricting access for persons with disabilities and who use mobility devices, Chapter 14 of the Portland City Code will be more strictly enforced effective immediately.”

Police will ask people to remove their belongings from the sidewalk, and if there is a failure to obey a lawful order, persons will be subject to arrest.

Please advise the people you, and your organizations, work with who are experiencing homelessness of this updated enforcement protocol.”

Respectfully,
