More homeless issues...

In November we had a homeless encampment spring up in the back of the garden.  Since it was uninhabited the day I was there, I took it down.

At our last volunteer day, another encampment showed up - bigger than before. Will a lot of trash etc.

I called 311 and within hours someone came by to take a look. However, this is apparently not a DPW problem, as PG is on Caltrans land...

So, if you want to help sort this out, please follow these steps.
  1. First post a CSR here https://csr.dot.ca.gov/ . You will receive a CSR number by email, automatically
  2. Call Caltrans rep Dennis at (510) 286-6438 and tell him the CSR number 
  3. Within 7-10 days they remove the encampment.
  4. It will return! However, when you repeat the above process 3 times, the state posts the area meaning there's more protection.
For encampments at PRG, down the block, here's what to do:
  1. Call 311 or use the 311 app (https://sf311.org/mobile ) to report the issue of an encampment at PG or PRG. I’ve already done this, but it’s not about me calling 10 times – a faster response comes from 10 people calling once each, according to the city.
  2. Call 911 if you feel threatened at all.
  3. Call Animal Care & Control at (415) 554-6364 if you see an animal in an encampment that is suffering, or behaving aggressively.
