RECOMMENDATION

Staff recommends the City Council (1) discuss and approve the short-term Culver City Nighttime Safe Park Permit Program for unsheltered individuals living in their vehicles during the COVID-19 pandemic; and (2) provide direction to the City Manager as deemed appropriate.

BACKGROUND

The Culver City Nighttime Safe Park Permit Program (Program) for unsheltered individuals residing in their vehicles offers a safe place to legally park on an overnight basis. In 2019, the Homeless Count found that 236 individuals lived on the street or in their vehicles in Culver City. Of the 236 individuals, 61 lived in cars, 6 lived in vans, and 23 lived in RVs or campers. This represents 38% of the unhoused population in Culver City. These numbers also reflect an increase in the overall numbers of unhoused individuals from the 2018 Homeless Count. The 2018 Homeless Count found 117 unsheltered individuals living in Culver City. Of the 117 individuals, 26 lived in cars, 9 lived in vans and 27 lived in RVs / campers. We can expect to see more people living in their vehicles due to the loss of income from the COVID-19 pandemic.
