In response to the growing need for safe place for people to sleep, the Eugene City Council approved a rest stop pilot program in October, 2013.
Rest stops allow up to 15 people to sleep overnight in tents on certain property. Each site must be managed by a site provider that signs an agreement with the City to supervise the site. The site provider is responsible for:
Currently, two rest stop sites are open in Eugene: one at Garfield and Roosevelt and a second at Northwest Expressway and Chambers. Both of these sites are managed by Community Supported Shelters. The City is looking for a site provider for a third site.
Additional information about Rest Stops:
The City of Eugene and Lane County continue to experience high numbers of homelessness and housing insecurity. Despite on-going and dedicated, publicly and privately-supported homeless services in our community, the demand for emergency shelter continues to exceed supply.
