San Francisco: New policy ties homeless services to motor home parking ban

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors approved a policy on Tuesday that before any street restrictions banning oversized vehicles, like motor homes where people without a home are living in, the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) will send an outreach team to a specific street to offer services before the SFMTA approves the restriction.

It’s a different policy for the SFMTA board who had requested since 2012 not to receive any more oversized vehicle restrictions from staff until The City came up with solutions to help people living in vehicles.

Finally, city officials are working on plans to help those living vehicles, according to an announcement made last month by Mayor London Breed and supervisors Vallie Brown and Ahsha Safai.
