San Jose to resume clearing homeless camps, with special focus near schools

Silicon Valley

The San Jose City Council voted on Tuesday to resume removing homeless encampments throughout the city, paying special attention to camps near schools. The 10-to-one vote — which comes a year after COVID-19 paused most encampment clearings — also directs city staff to propose rules that would govern where people can and can’t camp. And it opens the door for the city to explore setting up its first sanctioned encampment.
