 The Mayor of Encinitas declared a Homeless Emergency, in order to bypass agriculture zoning codes at Leichtag Commons, located in a heavily residential neighborhood.

This would allow the city to lease the land, which would enable Jewish Family Services to use  their grant for a "Safe Overnight Homeless Parking Lot" to be used by homeless who have cars in North County.  The City of Encinitas did not consider any of their city owned parking lots or alternate sites; instead they decided to secretly fast track this proposal, totally by passing  the public.

There is no guarantee that the current homeless families living in their cars in Encinitas will have priority.  It will be open to anyone to apply. Inviting homeless families into our city.

They did not notify any of the residents in the immediate neighborhoods or any of the citizens and voters of Encinitas.

We request the Encinitas City Council to stop their negotiations with Leichtag and Jewish Family Services regarding this Homeless Overnight Parking Lot. 

I  have a very personal reason to assist the homeless in my city. My brother died homeless on the streets, in his vehicle.  I want to find a solution or assist as many homeless as we can.  This is not the answer. These types of parking lots should be in industrial locations -- not in residential.

I am opposed to secret dealings without involving the public or the neighborhoods; the ones  that are directly impacted. I am opposed to a "creative" city proclamations in order to bypass agriculture zoning codes.

Please sign if you want the City of Encinitas Mayor and Council to stop fast tracking this proposal and begin due diligence that is owed to the citizens and voters of Encinitas to help the homeless population here.

WE ALSO HAVE A GO FUND ME PAGE FOR DONATIONS to help pay our legal bills.  Please contribute to this page as contributions on Change Org do not financially support our cause.
