Public Comment: Karen Grove, 5605 84th Avenue SE (Area 4), spoke about three principles, (1) safety for all modes of traffic and having 3 lanes and pedestrian median islands, (2) convenience and (3) flexibility as she would like to live in a way not dependant on car to get where need to go. Mark Satterlund, lives off-Island, Swerve Driver Training instructor, receives frequent question from parents of, “How do I get my teen onto Island Crest Way?” He stated that students are dependent on Island Crest Way to get to and from services.

Walter Boos, 8343 East Mercer Way (Area 5), is concerned about the "road diet". He stated that Island Crest Way is primary thoroughfare and the current configuration has reduced the daily flow of vehicles by 2100 vehicles.

Jake Jacobsen, 7997 SE 76th Street (Area 5), member of ICW Citizen's Panel, did not concur with panel's recommendation. He believes that narrowing Island Crest Way will cause further congestion, may be more unsafe and will be more difficult for drivers to enter Island Crest Way as traffic will be backed up. He believes the best option is traffic signal option as it serves safety in best possible way. His second choice would be to properly sign the current configuration. Jim Stanton, 7812 SE 78th Street (Area 5), believes that the main issue is safety. He has been using WMW more, because of the restricting lanes Island Crest Way. He urged the Council to look at the corridor as part of traffic flow on the entire Island. Fred LaCroix, 9401 SE 57th Street (Area 4), stated that Island Crest Way is the primary thoroughfare for Island and questions data collected especially the trip times recorded when school is in session. He thinks that changing from 4 to 3 lanes is not the option. David Schiffrin, 14 Brook Bay Road (Area 2), is in favor of no action or a traffic signal at the intersection. He stated that he is not directly impacted by a 3-lane configuration, but is affected by an increase of traffic on West Mercer Way because of the change. He asked the Council to look at whether a documented City of Mercer Island City Council Meeting Minutes December 7, 2009 3 problem exists.

She stated that turning onto Island Crest Way is dangerous and strongly believes that the 3-lane configuration is the right option for the corridor. She understands the worry and concern about the changes, but safety is most important. Jerome Roache, 4341 Island Crest Way (Area 2), lives on the corner of Island Crest Way and Merrimount. He thought the signal option was best, but now believes the 3-lane option is better because of the way the road is.

Ken Brostrom, 7821 SE 71st Street (Area 5), believes that the road diet will reduce Island Crest Way carrying capacity and will make difficult for side streets to enter Island Crest Way. He believes this will increase road rage and increase the danger of accidents at intersection. He stated that service vehicles and buses don't pull into pull-outs as it’s difficult to pull back in to traffic, causing more congestion.

He would not recommend putting bike lane on Island Crest Way because of the traffic speed. He has seen more near misses and accidents since the reconfiguration.

He would like to see pedestrian signals up and down Island Crest Way and to see SE 44th Street closed off as it is dangerous. He would like to see a traffic signal at the intersection, but only as a three-way intersection. Mark Clausen, 6107 SE 32nd Street (Area 1), believes road diet is a bad idea. He thinks that Island Crest City of Mercer Island City Council Meeting Minutes December 7, 2009 4 Way is not good for cycling.

She bleives the traffic light is a bad idea. She asked the Council to look at the general needs of community not individual concerns. Bob Olson, 7817 SE 73rd Place (Area 5), concurs with the comments of David Schiffrin, Jim Stanton, Mark Clausen, Wally Boos and Eva Zemplenyi. Kris Kelsay, 4743 Fernridge Lane (Area 1), believes the decision should be a data-driven. She stated that the experts, the Council and the citizen panel all recommended a 3-lane configuration. She stated that on the ABC website, 400 people said the 3-lane configuration is the best option. She believes the corridor problems need to be solved not just the Island Crest Way/Merrimount intersection. Steve Bryan, 2426 70th Avenue SE, (Area 1), believes that safety is key. He doesn’t think that Island Crest Way is safe for bikes. He thinks that the current arrangement provides traffic calming. He is less concerned about travel time, more concerned with safety.

Jenny Selby, 4595 89th Avenue SE (Area 4), uses SE 47th Street to access Island Crest Way and believes that since the reconfiguration, getting onto Island Crest Way has become more dangerous. She believes that a bike lane will make it more dangerous. Tamae Moriyasu, 9019 SE 61st Street (Area 4), agrees with comments of Daniel Glasser and Kris Kelsay. She stated that the Council paid for a study and they should follow the results. She believes that safety of the citizens is their first responsibility not to make commute faster. Monica Malene, 8810 SE 56th Street (Area 4), supports 3-lane configuration and urged the Council to think about making Island Crest Way safer for all people not just one group of users. Dana Isherwood, 8706 SE 50th Street (Area 3), explained that her neighborhood’s only access point is to take a right or left turn from SE 48th Street to Island Crest Way, where the visibility is poor because of the curve in the road. She believes that if the Council chooses the 3-lane configuration, there must be a different option for SE 48th Street. Joy Matsura, Island Resident (Area 5), would like to see a light at the intersection of Island Crest Way and Merrimount for pedestrian safety and left turns, but agrees that it is too expensive to re-grade SE 44th Street. She stated that after looking at traffic data, it seems there are a lot of very bad drivers on Mercer Island. She does not think that adding bike lanes to Island Crest Way will necessarily make it safer. Penny Storie, 8470 Benotho Place(Area 5), believes that traffic has gotten worse every year. She would like to see Island Crest Way return to 4 lanes, SE 44th Street closed off and left turns onto Island Crest Way from Merrimount prohibited. Lee Prewitt, 4641 90th Avenue SE (Area 3), believes that the data should be driving the decision for the Island Crest Way corridor. He spoke about his experience with a 3-lane configuration in Kirkland. City of Mercer Island City Council Meeting Minutes December 7, 2009 5 Adam Cooper, 4114 Boulevard Lane (Area 4), spoke as a citizen, not as a Planning Commissioner, believes that Island Crest Way should not have bike lanes included and should be for motor vehicles only. He suggested reducing speed limits on East and West Mercer Ways to move drivers back to Island Crest Way. Allison Lewis, 4759 Fernridge Lane (Area 1), encouraged the Council to look at data to make a decision not anecdotal evidence. She strongly supports the 3-lane configuration as it is the safest option. She has a teen driver who has to make left turns off Island Crest Way and it is terrifying for her and her daughter. She is also concerned that the speed limit is not followed. Bonnie Wojciehowski, 7835 SE 63rd Place (Area 2), member of the ICW Citizen's Panel, dedicated last 4 months to researching 3-lane corridors and would have strongly supported Council's initial decision to extend the 3-lane configuration all way down Island Crest Way if she had this information prior to the panel meetings. She believes that it is critical that 3-lane configuration extend from SE 42nd Street to SE 53rd Street. Jonathan Harrington, 9514 SE 68th Street (Area 5), supports 3-lane configuration after looking at the data. He understands the difficulty in balancing the needs of all of the citizens. Elliot Newman, 8525 SE 79th Place (Area 5), thanked the Council for the opportunity to express opinions about Island Crest Way. His observation is that the issue is with corridor not the intersection, even though the Island Crest Way/Merrimount intersection was the mandate for change. He provided list of 232 people who endorse a 3-lane configuration, 41 comments of people who did not attend the meeting, as well as Twitter and Facebook comments about Island Crest Way. He believes the corridor is dangerous and the people who have commented have stated safety as the major concern. Amy White, 5605 89th Avenue SE (Area 4), appreciates the opportunity to turn left and right onto Island Crest Way and a middle lane may cause conflict. She is concerned about new changes to high school campus. She supports a light on Island Crest Way and flashing pedestrian crossings. Mickey Brostrom, 7821 SE 71st Street (Area 5), asked the Council to keep in mind that all data is subject to interpretation. She sees the options as single solutions to a series of problems and believes whatever solution is chosen will create more problems down the chain. The Council took a break at 9:00 pm. The meeting reconvened at 9:15 pm.

Interlocal Agreement with City of Bellevue APPROVED BY CITY MANAGER AMOUNT OF EXPENDITURE $ n/a AMOUNT BUDGETED $ n/a APPROPRIATION REQUIRED $ n/a SUMMARY OVERVIEW Mercer Island began its Marine Patrol unit in 1983, having formerly been serviced by King County. Since that time, the Marine Patrol unit has expanded to serve four other contract cities to include Renton, Medina, Hunts Point and Yarrow Point. Under this contracting model, the total cost of the program is tallied at the end of each year, and from this amount the boat tax we receive from Mercer Island and our contract cities is deducted. The remaining amount is then divided with Mercer Island paying 55% of the costs and the contract cities paying the remaining 45% (Yarrow Point pays a flat fee). PROPOSAL Earlier this year, the Police Chiefs from Mercer Island and Bellevue began discussing ways to leverage the services of their agencies while not increasing costs. Bellevue was interested in receiving services from Mercer Island’s Marine Patrol and Dive Team on Lake Washington. Mercer Island was interested in receiving services from Bellevue’s SWAT team, specialized forensics, K-9, major investigations and the use of their firing range. Bellevue currently has a contract with King County for Marine Patrol for services on Lake Washington. Bellevue would like to cancel this contract with King County, and subsequently secure Marine Patrol services from Mercer Island for their Lake Washington waters. Mercer Island does not have any contracts for the specialized services identified above; therefore whenever Mercer Island has needed any of these specialized services we have had to call for assistance from other agencies via mutual aid. This proposed agreement with Bellevue would formalize an arrangement whereby Mercer Island would no longer be in a position of calling in favors from other agencies for these specialized services. Mercer Island would receive specialized services from Bellevue in exchange for Mercer Island providing Bellevue with Marine Patrol and Dive Team services. Page 1 COST IMPLICATIONS No short term or long term cost increases for Mercer Island are anticipated under this agreement. Mercer Island patrol boats are frequently in Bellevue’s Lake Washington waters as part of regular patrolling routines. Any changes to how Mercer Island’s Marine Patrol would operate would be negligible under this agreement. On the rare occasion when there has been a significant event in Bellevue’s Lake Washington waters, the Mercer Island Marine Patrol and Dive Team have responded to the scene under the mutual aid agreement (Bellevue has not been charged for this service). Under this agreement Mercer Island’s Marine Patrol program would also receive a percentage of boat tax from Bellevue (totaling approximately $28,000), which would serve to reduce the overall cost of the program. In addition, Mercer Island would also avoid the ongoing cost of renting a firing range for our low-light practice sessions. RECOGNITION OF FIRE DEPARTMENT RESPONSES Under the King County Fire Resource Plan, which provides mutual aid assistance for any fire agency within King County, the Bellevue Fire Department sends their units to Mercer Island more often that Mercer Island sends units to Bellevue. By formalizing this agreement with Bellevue, any inequities experienced under the King County Fire Resource Plan, would be recognized and off-set, thus helping to balance this response equation. SUMMARY This proposed agreement is favorable for Mercer Island, Bellevue, and the cities that contract with Mercer Island for Marine Patrol services. Mercer Island will secure specialized services from Bellevue, and will avoid the cost of renting an indoor firing range for low-light practice sessions. Mercer Island will also receive formal recognition from Bellevue’s Fire Department relating to balancing the number of mutual aid responses between Bellevue and Mercer Island. Bellevue will receive Marine Patrol and Dive Team services on Lake Washington and will no longer have to pay a fee to King County for this service. The other cities that contract with Mercer Island for Marine Patrol services support this proposed agreement, as they will not realize a reduction in service, but will benefit from a reduction in their fees due to the new boat tax revenue from Bellevue. RECOMMENDATION Chief of Police MOVE TO: Authorize the City Manager to sign the Interlocal Agreement between the City of Mercer Island and the City of Bellevue relating to Marine Patrol and other services. Page 2 INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF BELLEVUE AND THE CITY OF MERCER ISLAND RELATING TO MARINE PATROL AND OTHER SERVICES This is an Interlocal Agreement (Agreement) between the City of Bellevue (Bellevue) and the City of Mercer Island (Mercer Island) for exchange of governmental services. The Agreement shall be upon the last date of signing below. WHEREAS Bellevue has a geographical boundary either boarding on or encompassing navigable waters in King County and, thus has the authority to police these waters; and WHEREAS, Mercer Island has established and maintains a marine patrol service on Lake Washington which can also serve the waters under the authority of Bellevue; WHEREAS, Bellevue has established specialized police services such as K-9, forensics, firing range and major investigations of which services Mercer Island has need from time to time. NOW Therefore, Bellevue and Mercer Island hereby agree: 1. Mercer Island Obligations: 1.1 Through its Marine Patrol Unit, Mercer Island will provide routine patrol of waters on Lake Washington under the authority of Bellevue as described under Section 1.3 for the purposes of enforcing applicable laws and ordinances, promoting boating safety, and preventing law or safety violations, including responding to emergency complaints in accordance with standard emergency dispatch protocol. 1.2 Marine patrol services will be provided year-round. 1.3 Mercer Island shall provide routine patrol services in water areas under the jurisdiction of Bellevue on Lake Washington rendering service of the same level, degree and type as rendered for Mercer Island in its jurisdiction, provided that marine patrol services shall be subject to interruption for boat repair and maintenance. The shifts shall emphasize afternoon and early evening hours of the boating season. 1.4 At the specific request of Bellevue, provide patrol services and/or respond to emergencies at times other than those of the daily boating season shift and outside the boating season. 1.5 Provide Bellevue with a report of the marine patrol services rendered within Bellevue’s waters, including number of calls for service (dispatched and on-view), number and type of citations and warnings issued, and safety checks made. 2.

Proximity map APPROVED BY CITY MANAGER AMOUNT OF EXPENDITURE $ n/a AMOUNT BUDGETED $ n/a APPROPRIATION REQUIRED $ n/a SUMMARY HISTORY The Mercer Island United Methodist Church (“Church”) invited Tent City 4 to establish a temporary encampment on the Church’s property for three months beginning August 5, 2008. The encampment stayed on the Island for approximately 90 days. Tent City 4 is a temporary homeless encampment managed by SHARE/WHEEL, a non-profit homeless advocacy organization. The Church’s pastor, congregational leaders, and SHARE/WHEEL signed a Temporary Use Agreement with the City, which Agreement was approved at the City Council meeting on June 16, 2008. The Temporary Use Agreement addressed the health, safety and welfare concerns arising from the temporary encampment’s stay at the Church. Mindful of the extensive litigation surrounding temporary encampments and religious institutions’ ministry to the homeless, the City determined that it was unlikely to prevail in court on forbidding such an encampment if the Church invited Tent City 4. The City also determined that it was likely to obtain more favorable conditions to the City if it entered into a voluntary agreement with SHARE/WHEEL and the Church. The parties agreed that the City (Fire, Police and DSG) and King County Health Department could regularly Page 1 inspect the encampment. The Church and SHARE/WHEEL agreed to a hold harmless and indemnification provision. Many other elements of the Temporary Use Agreement were incorporated into the proposed ordinance, attached as Exhibit 1. At the June 20, 2009 Council Mini-Planning Session, the City Council directed staff to meet with citizens to discuss the Tent City 4 experience, and to prepare a draft Temporary Encampment ordinance for Council’s consideration. Staff returned to the Council with a proposed sequence of events designed to ultimately provide the Council with an ordinance ready for adoption by February 1, 2010. After Council’s approval of the timeline, City staff met with First Hill neighbors and the community at large. As part of the SEPA process, comments were obtained at those meetings. Both oral and written comments from citizens were ultimately provided to the Planning Commission for consideration. The public comments are attached as Exhibits 2 and 3. Staff also conducted extensive research into the legal parameters regarding the regulation of temporary encampments, including review of recent case law regarding Tent City 4. Recently, the Washington State Supreme Court decided in a unanimous decision that numerous cases before it have already determined that the state constitution “absolutely protects the free exercise of religion, [and] extends broader protection than the first amendment to the federal constitution…” City of Woodinville v. Northshore United Church of Christ, WA Supreme Court slip opinion, July 16, 2009. Relying on the Washington State Constitution, the Court held that cities may not impose a temporary moratorium on churches hosting homeless encampments. The court concluded that the religious organizations have more protection under Washington’s constitution and, therefore, did not address whether there was also a violation of federal statutes or the federal constitution. Cities may regulate concerns for safety, noise, and crime but may not outright deny consideration of permitting a church to host a homeless encampment. A more extensive legal analysis is provided in Exhibit 4. This analysis was provided to the Planning Commission along with the various City departments’ experiences with Tent City 4 during its stay on the Island. PROCESS City staff held a public meeting on August 25, 2009 at the Mercer Island United Methodist Church to receive input from the greater First Hill Neighborhood. Much of the information derived from that meeting was useful in designing a draft Temporary Encampment Ordinance. On October 22, 2009, staff held a community-wide open house at the Community Center at Mercer View to provide a forum for additional public input and to provide an overview of the draft Temporary Encampment Ordinance. The major areas of discussion regarded the legal structure of the ordinance, communication issues such as public noticing of immediate neighbors and the community as well as opportunities for public involvement, regulatory issues surrounding the location of future temporary encampments and any benefits or concerns of proposed sites, public safety issues and compliance with regulations and codes. Guided by the comments from the public, the ordinance was refined and presented to the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission was given a briefing on October 7, 2009. The briefing included discussion of the key provisions of the ordinance, as well as why potential regulatory conditions were not specifically included as mandatory permitting elements. See Exhibit 5. Some of those potential regulatory conditions were deemed more appropriate for site-specific issues that could be addressed in the temporary encampment permit on a case by case basis by the code official. Others are addressed through other code requirements. Some are likely to be considered unconstitutional. In addition to the public discussion regarding the ordinance, the Planning Commission was provided information drawn from the City’s experience with the Tent City 4 visit. See Exhibit 4. DSG, Police and Fire discussed the Departments’ experiences with the encampment. A discussion of the communication experience regarding Tent City 4 was also addressed. The Planning Commission asked that the staff return with a staff recommended ordinance once the community wide meeting was held and the oral and written comments were reviewed. Ultimately, a public hearing was held before the Planning Commission on Page 2 November 18, 2009. The Planning Commission decided on the recommended ordinance being presented to City Council. RECOMMENDED ORDINANCE HIGHLIGHTS In reviewing temporary encampment regulations of other eastside municipalities, some choose to address the health, safety and welfare issues within the ordinance itself. Others address such regulations via temporary use permits. The current proposed ordinance allows some flexibility for the Code Official to adopt additional requirements in the permit itself based on the location and site conditions of the temporary encampment. A matrix is attached as Exhibit 6 comparing the proposed ordinance to other cities’ ordinances (as opposed to temporary permits, with the exception if Issaquah). Many of the provisions in the Temporary Use Agreement for Tent City 4 were used in the drafting of the staff recommended ordinance ultimately presented to the Planning Commission. The key points of the Planning Commission recommended ordinance are: a. A pre-application meeting and an informal public meeting are required for any temporary encampment. An application must be submitted at least 90 days prior to opening a temporary encampment. b. Notice of the application would be required to be mailed to all residents within 600 feet of the proposed site. Typically, a 300 foot notice is required. A public notice sign would also be posted on site. c. The location and visual screening must provide “privacy and a visual buffer” for temporary encampment residents and neighbors. The ordinance provides guidance regarding the materials and height of the fence that was not as clearly defined in the Temporary Use Agreement for Tent City 4. d. No more than 100 people could stay at the encampment. e. No children under the age of 18 will reside in the encampment. f. A stringent code of conduct would be enforced. The temporary encampment sponsor and managing organization would be required to comply with all applicable City and State codes. g. All camp residents must provide government issued identification. Warrant and sex offender status of all prospective residents must be checked within the seven days prior to moving to Mercer Island. Any positive results must be reported to the Police Department. h. No sex offenders would be allowed to stay at the encampment. i. Random warrant and sex offender checks by the Police Department could be conducted to ensure compliance. j. The temporary encampment sponsor must provide a hold harmless and indemnification provision. k. The temporary encampment must allow regular inspections by the City (Fire, Police and DSG) and the King County Health Department. l. No temporary encampment would be permitted to return within one-half mile of a previous temporary encampment until 18 months after that previous encampment leaves the City. The Temporary Use Agreement prohibited more than one Temporary Encampment on Mercer Island each calendar year. m. Any violation of city code as a condition of a permit must be cured within seven days of mailing a notice of violation. The Temporary Use agreement required a cure within 14 days of notice. Exhibit 7 details the proximity of Mercer Island places of worship to bus stops, schools and child care services. Again, the Code official may require additional site specific conditions in the permit which are not currently identified in the proposed ordinance. This is intended to allow flexibility given the variety of sites which may be presented for locating temporary encampments in the future. At this point, the City Council is to hold an Open Record Public Hearing to review the Planning Commission’s recommended ordinance and to consider any additional comments or information. The Council will conduct the first reading of Ordinance No. 10C-01 and provide staff with additional direction, if desired. The second reading of the ordinance is scheduled for February 1, 2010. Page 3 RECOMMENDATION Deputy City Manager MOVE TO: Hold an Open Record Public Hearing/Public Meeting, conduct the first reading of Ordinance No. 10C-01 regarding temporary encampments as recommended by the Planning Commission, and set the ordinance for a second reading on February 1, 2010.

Notice of the public meeting shall be provided in the same manner as required for notice of the application, at least 10 days prior to the informal public meeting, and combined with the notice of application whenever possible. Prior to the public meeting, the temporary encampment sponsor and managing organization shall meet and confer with the Mercer Island Police Department regarding the proposed security measures. At the public meeting, a representative of the temporary encampment sponsor and managing organization shall present in writing and describe the proposed temporary encampment management security measures, and any input or comment received on the plan, including any comment or input from the Mercer Island Police Department, or comment or input from schools and/or child care services under subsection 2 of this section. Copies of the agenda, and other materials shall be provided by the applicant at the meeting. The meeting shall be conducted on the subject property whenever feasible. 2. Additional Mailed Notice. The requirements for mailing the notice of application set forth in MICC 19.15 shall be expanded to include owners of real property within 600 feet of the lot(s) containing the proposed temporary encampment. Prior to any application for a temporary encampment permit, the temporary encampment sponsor, or temporary encampment managing organization shall meet and confer with the administration of any public or private elementary, middle, junior high or high school within 600 feet of the boundaries of the lot(s) proposed to contain the temporary encampment, and shall meet and confer with the operators of any properly licensed child care service within 600 feet of the boundaries of the lot(s) proposed to contain the temporary encampment. The temporary encampment sponsor and the school administration and/or child care service operator shall make a good faith effort to agree upon any additional conditions that may be appropriate or necessary to address school and/or child care concerns regarding the location of a temporary encampment within 600 feet of such a facility. Any such conditions agreed upon between the parties shall be submitted to the code official for consideration, for inclusion within the temporary encampment permit. In the event the parties fail to agree on any conditions, either party may provide the code official with a written summary of the parties’ discussions, which the code official may consider in evaluating whether the criteria for the temporary encampment permit are met, or the need for additional conditions upon the temporary encampment permit, based on the applicable decision criteria. D. Emergencies. The code official may waive these requirements when a catastrophic event necessitates the immediate establishment of a temporary encampment. Section 3.

Lines delineate the change in speaker. The notes are only a summary.) Jerry Bradshaw Increased traffic and disruption to neighborhood. Concerns regarding #6, #19, #20 of Ordinance. Violations should be resolved within 48 hours or camp closed. Utilize professional security patrols versus untrained (TC patrols). Concerns regarding reduced property values to neighboring homes. No follow-thru with neighbors by Church. What did Tent City cost all City Depts.? All neighborhoods should take turns, versus the same host. Some may believe it is the City’s duty to bring back Tent City. Steve Bryan – 2426 70th Ave SE Appreciate the meeting with First Hill neighborhood, process has been constructive. Smoking area – should be addressed in the Ordinance, need to limit the amount of impact on the neighborhood.. Need to address delivery services (early morning servicing of sani-cans, and other services) were disruptive to neighbors. Mercer Island Presbyterian Church – 100+ people signed up to provide meals for TC while they were here (ages 3 to 70). All of their feedback about the experience of having TC on Mercer Island has been positive. AB 4492 Exhibit 3 Page 21 Where in the process does the Church/Synagogue actually extend the invitation? Chuck Hodge Regarding the map – does the regulation limit a church, based on public transportation? Steve Case – 4250 Shoreclub Drive Does the 12 month time period in the Ordinance count from the beginning (when TC arrives) or the end (after TC leaves)? Jessica Prince Family spent time at the camp and made connections with the people living there – positive experience to be with them. Would Tent City be able to come back? Is the Ordinance structured in such a way so as to make it difficult for TC to ever return to MI? Dale Sewell – 9535 Mercerwood Drive No interest in having TC coming back more than once a year or returning to the same neighborhoods. Some congregations had concerns regarding the one mile distance (i.e. if one church hosts, will the other 11 churches be restricted from hosting for 12 months? ). Isn’t this unconstitutional? Would any other sites be eliminated because of the ordinance? Good process – the City should meet with the Clergy Association to discuss the Ordinance and talk about constitutional issues/concerns. Rev. Leslie Ann Knight – 6616 SE 24th St. Need a parking regulation in the Ordinance. Most development/building projects require “more than enough” parking, i.e. the churches have plenty of parking capacity. Timeline looks too long – TC is often “emergency housing” – a mandatory time of 3 months preparation seems too long – how does that compare to other cities?. Will this Ordinance afford the church’s some protection from litigation? Legend of map - 600’ to school site, what are the implications for TC? What if the issues can’t be resolved? AB 4492 Exhibit 3 Page 22 Is the one year restriction more restrictive? Versus the language in the Temporary use Agreement – (Tent City can’t come anywhere on the Island for one year). Tara Johnson Ordinance Issues: #6 – would prefer 18 months (like Bellevue) #20 – 14 days too generous, would like 48 hours to resolve #17 – need to be more specific regarding “reasonable verification” Requirement of host church to hold monthly meetings with neighbors. Security patrols should be prohibited like Redmond and Kirkland, especially in the middle of the night. Parking – add language to address overflow issues (blocking neighbors driveways, etc.) Karen Morris, Bellevue Fence – more than appearance, but is meant to provide one point of entrance/exit for TC residents. Hold Harmless provision, but no requirement for liability insurance. Should be meetings with schools – concern about cooperation with school requests. City staff should not refer to “proponents” and “opponents” - too demeaning. Ira Appleman Ordinance refers to temporary encampments (not specifically Tent City). What about Boy Scout Jamborees? Should this be a Conditional use Agreement instead of an Ordinance? Don’t write an Ordinance for one specific use/organization. AB 4492 Exhibit 3 Page 23 Memorandum City Attorney’s Office Date: October 1, 2009 To: City Planning Commission From: Katie Knight, City Attorney RE: Overview of 2008 Tent City Experience I. 2008 TENT CITY EXPERIENCE A. LEGAL 1. Factual Background The Mercer Island United Methodist Church (“Church”) invited the nonprofit organization SHARE/WHEEL, organizer and manager of Tent City 4, to establish a Tent City encampment on the Church’s property for three months beginning August 5, 2008. The Church’s pastor, congregational leaders, and SHARE/WHEEL signed a Temporary Use Agreement (“Agreement”) with the City after a small amendment was made during the City Council meeting on June 16, 2008. Based on the extensive litigation with Eastside communities in the past, the City determined that it was unlikely to prevail on forbidding such an encampment if the Church invited Tent City 4. The City also determined that it was likely to obtain more favorable conditions to the City if it entered into a voluntary agreement with SHARE/WHEEL and the Church. The Temporary Use Agreement contained the following terms: • There will not be more than one encampment on Mercer Island in a calendar year at the Church and the duration of any stay will not exceed three months. • The location and visual screening of the camp will afford privacy for Tent City residents and neighbors. • No more than 100 people will stay at the camp. • The church will manage parking at weekly services to minimize spillover onto neighborhood streets. • No children under the age of 18 will reside in the Tent City encampment. • A stringent code of conduct will be enforced and SHARE/WHEEL and the Church will comply with all lawful City and State codes. AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 24 • The identity of all camp residents will be verified, and warrant and sex offender status of prospective residents will be checked. Any positive results reported to the MI Police Department. • No sex offenders will be allowed to stay at the encampment. • The Church and Tent City managers will allow regular inspections by the City (Fire, Police and DSG) and the King County Health Department. • The Church and SHARE/WHEEL agreed to a hold harmless and indemnification provision. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Church held a public informational neighborhood meeting approximately one month prior to establishment of the encampment, with notice of the meeting published in the MI Reporter and delivered to nearby residents/owners two weeks prior to the meeting. Prior to Tent City 4’s arrival, the City, Church and SHARE/WHEEL were sued by a group calling themselves Citizens for Fair Process. Ultimately, the trial court dismissed the group’s claims. The dismissal of the case has been appealed. Tent City 4 moved to Mercer Island in August, 2008 for about 90 days. 2. Constitutional Issues As is discussed more fully below, courts across the nation have recognized the activities of feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless as core religious activities. For example, the court reviewing Tent City’s arrival at St. Brendan’s in Bothell found as a matter of law that “St. Brendan’s use of its property for the purpose of sheltering the homeless constitutes the exercise of religion and is protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 11 of the Washington State Constitution.” A. The Washington State Constitution Bars Government Restrictions on the Exercise of Religious Duties on Church Property Unless a Compelling Governmental Interest Demands Intervention. Article 1, Section 11 of the Washington State Constitution ensures “[a]bsolute freedom of conscience in all matters of religious sentiment, belief, and worship” to “every individual” and guarantees that “no one shall be molested or disturbed in person or property on account of religion.” This guarantee of free exercise – significantly stronger than the corresponding provision in the federal Constitution – “is ‘of vital importance.’” First Covenant Church of Seattle v. City of Seattle, 120 Wn.2d 203, 226, 840 P.2d 174, 186-87 (Wash. 1992). If the “coercive effect of [an] enactment” operates against a party “in the practice of his religion”, it unduly burdens the free exercise of religion. A facially neutral, even-handedly enforced statute that does not directly burden free exercise may, nonetheless, violate Article 1, section 11, if it indirectly burdens the exercise of religion. State action is constitutional under the free exercise clause of article 1 if the action results in no infringement of a citizen’s right or if a compelling state interest justifies any burden on the free exercise of religion. Id. at 226, 840 P.2d at 187 (citations omitted; alterations and omissions in the original); see also Munns v. Martin, 130 Wn.2d 192, 200, 930 P.2d 318, 321 (Wash. 1997); City of Sumner v. First Baptist Church, 97 Wn.2d 1, 5, 639 P.2d 1358, 1361 (Wash. 1982). AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 25 “A ‘compelling interest’ is one that has a ‘clear justification . . . in the necessities of national or community life’, that prevents a ‘clear and present, grave and immediate’ danger to public health, peace and welfare.” First Covenant, 120 Wn.2d at 226-27, 840 P.2d at 187 (citations omitted; emphasis added). The interest must be "paramount." Sherber v. Verner, 374 U.S. 398, 406 (1963). The test also focuses on the means used to accomplish the asserted interest: “The State also must demonstrate that the means chosen to achieve its compelling interest are necessary and the least restrictive available.” First Covenant, 120 Wn.2d at 227, 840 P.2d at 187. The least restrictive means element is virtually impossible to satisfy when reasonable alternatives exist that would advance the government’s interests without sacrificing the religious exercise at issue. In effect, this means that the courts will examine the regulations on a case-by-case basis, and the City will have to show that its regulations were the minimum necessary to achieve its interests in the health, safety and welfare of its citizens. The regulations cannot be such that the use ends up being prohibited if there is a way to achieve the use while protecting the health, safety and welfare of citizens. The Washington State Supreme Court, in a 9-0 decision, most recently declared that numerous cases before it have already decided that the state constitution “absolutely protects the free exercise of religion, [and] extends broader protection than the first amendment to the federal constitution…” First Covenant Church v. City of Seattle, 120 Wn.2d 203, 229-30, 840 P.2d 174 (1992). The court concluded that the religious organizations have more protection under Washington’s constitution and did not go further to determine whether there was violation of RLUIPA. Under this decision, Cities may regulate concerns for safety, noise, and crime but may not outright deny consideration of permitting. City of Woodinville v. Northshore Church of United Christ, WA Supreme Court slip opinion, July 16, 2009. Although the Woodinville court determined that it only needed to base its decision on the Washington State Constitution, a review of the U.S. Constitution assists in understanding the concerns regarding regulating ministry to the homeless. B. The Free Exercise Clause Of The First Amendment To The United States Constitution Bars Government From Interfering With A Church’s Ministry To The Homeless Unless A Compelling Governmental Interest Demands Intervention. Like the Washington Constitution, the United States Constitution proscribes governmental action that infringes on the ability of churches to exercise the mandates of their faith. The First Amendment both guarantees the right of free exercise of religion and provides that government may not establish or otherwise control religion. See U.S. Const. Amend I. The same compelling governmental interest test applied by the Washington courts also applies under the First Amendment where, as in most land use matters, individualized exemptions to otherwise generally applicable rules are allowed in the discretion of government officials. In the case of Church of the Lukumi Babalu Aye, Inc. v. City of Hialeah, 508 U.S. 520, (1993), the United States Supreme Court held: As we noted in Smith, in circumstances in which individualized exemptions from a general requirement are available, the government AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 26 “may not refuse to extend that system to cases of ‘religious hardship’ without compelling reason.” 508 U.S. at 537. Thus, the Free Exercise clause of the First Amendment prohibits enforcement of zoning regulations that place a substantial burden on the exercise of religion unless the land use authority demonstrates that the regulations are necessary to further a compelling governmental interest (i.e., prevention of a clear, present, grave and immediate danger to public health, peace and welfare) and that the least restrictive means necessary to further that governmental interest are employed. C. RLUIPA Bars Government Restrictions On The Exercise Of Religious Duties On Church Property Unless A Compelling Governmental Interest Demands Intervention. After finding substantial evidence of widespread discrimination against religious uses of land, Congress unanimously passed the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (“RLUIPA”). RLUIPA bars enforcement of any local land use law or regulation that fails the “compelling state interest” test: No government shall impose or implement a land use regulation in a manner that imposes a substantial burden on the religious exercise of a person, including a religious assembly or institution, unless the government demonstrates that imposition of the burden on that person, assembly, or institution – (A) is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and (B) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling government interest. 42 U.S.C. 2000cc § 2(a)(1). RLUIPA specifically permits aggrieved churches to challenge enforcement actions that burden the free exercise of religion. See id., § 4(a). As under the constitutional standard, once a church produces evidence demonstrating a burden on the exercise of religion, it is the government’s burden to justify its actions under the compelling governmental interest test. See id., § 2(a)(1)(A)-(B); § 4(b); § 8(2). RLUIPA is to “be construed in favor of a broad protection of religious exercise, to the maximum extent permitted by the terms of this Act and the Constitution.” Id., § 5(g) (emphasis added). Anyone who successfully asserts a RLUIPA claim is entitled to an award of attorney's fees. See id., § 4(d); 42 U.S.C. § 1988(b). The Act broadly defines the term “land use regulation” to mean any “zoning . . . law, or the application of such a law, that limits or restricts a claimant’s use … of land.” Id., § 8(5). RLUIPA defines "religious exercise" to include "any exercise of religion, whether or not compelled by, or central to, a system of religious belief." Id.,§7(A). While the Act does not define “substantial burden,” courts have repeatedly interpreted the term in similar contexts. Among other things, “a substantial burden on the free exercise of religion . . . is one that forces AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 27 adherents of a religion to refrain from religiously motivated conduct . . . ”. Mack v. O’Leary, 80 F.3d 1175, 1179 (7th Cir. 1996), certiorari granted, judgment vacated on other grounds, 522 U.S. 801 (1997); see also Brown-El v. Harris, 26 F.3d 68, 70 (8th Cir. 1994) (government action that forces religious adherents “to refrain from religiously motivated conduct” substantially burdens religious exercise); Werner v. McCotter, 49 F.2d 1476, 1480 (10th Cir. 1995) (action that “significantly inhibit[s] or constrain[s] conduct or expression that manifests some central tenet of a [person’s] individual beliefs” substantially burdens religious exercise). Section 5(e) of RLUIPA makes it clear that Congress intended land use authorities to be flexible in accommodating churches' free exercise of religion. That section states: A government may avoid the preemptive force of any provision of this Act by changing the policy or practice that results in a substantial burden on religious exercise, by retaining the policy or practice and exempting the substantially burdened religious exercise, by providing exemptions from the policy or practice for applications that substantially burden religious exercise, or by any other means that eliminates the substantial burden. Id. §5(e). Thus, the Act specifically provides that a land use regulator may comply with RLUIPA and accommodate a church’s exercising the mandates of its religion by recognizing higher standards of regulation in connection with homeless ministries. Here, the City used its inherent ability to contract in order to accommodate the flexibility dictated in RLUIPA. Just as development agreements are entered into by the City and private entities in order to address such issues, the City entered into the Temporary Use Agreement with the Church and with SHARE/WHEEL to accommodate the Church’s exercise of the mandates of its religion while regulating concerns about the health, safety and welfare of its citizens and the Tent City 4 residents. State and Federal law supersede the City’s municipal code. If the City’s code is in conflict with these superior laws, then those laws govern and the City cannot prohibit the activity. Even if the City code is silent with regard to Temporary Homeless Encampments, federal law and state law mandate that the City not impose burdens to hinder this activity. Given the Church’s stated intent to host Tent City 4 on its property, the City’s authority to prohibit this impending encampment was at best uncertain. The King County Superior Court’s June 10, 2004 decision reflected this tenuous legal landscape by refusing to grant the City of Bothell’s request for a preliminary injunction, even where Tent City 4 had established its homeless encampment unlawfully and without the requested local permits. The City of Mercer Island was entitled to rely upon the experiences of other municipalities (e.g., Bothell) in determining an appropriate response to the encampment’s arrival at the Church. See, e.g., City of Renton v. Playtime Theatres, Inc., 475 U.S. 41, 51-52 (1986). The ultimate wisdom of the City Council’s responsive policy is not properly subject to review. See, e.g., Davis v. exrel. Dept of Licensing, 137 Wn.2d 957, 976, n.12, 977 P.2d 534 (1999). AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 28 B. DSG Experience with Tent City 1. Title 19 MICC – Unified Land Development Code Title 19 of the Mercer Island City Code (MICC) regulates the manner in which land is used and developed throughout the island. This includes the types of land uses allowed in various locations and the allowed or required physical attributes of those uses. The R-9.6 zoning district is intended primarily for single family residential use. Certain non-residential uses considered to be supportive of a residential environment (e.g., schools and places of worship) or needing a residential environment to operate effectively (e.g., special needs group housing) are also allowed either outright or through a “conditional use” review process. Title 19 does not specifically address the appropriate location or required attributes of temporary homeless encampments such as Tent City 4. Section 19.06.010 of the city code specifies uses that are prohibited, but the list of prohibited uses does not include temporary homeless encampments or any similar use. Experience: As discussed elsewhere in this report, the legal right of religious organizations to host such temporary homeless encampments has been recognized by the courts. Based upon this right and the provisions of the Title 19 described above, it was determined that nothing within the City’s land use regulations would prevent or specify the conditions under which MIUMC or another place of worship could host Tent City 4. In light of the lack of specific guidance within Title 19 regarding the conditions under which a temporary homeless encampment might operate, City staff worked with MIUMC, Share/Wheel and Tent City 4 to include in the Temporary Use Agreement requirements typically applied to other allowed uses. These include: property line setbacks and screening or visual buffering; exterior lighting; density or intensity of use (maximum number of residents); and parking. Provisions included in the Agreement were based, to the extent deemed appropriate, on requirements for similar uses and situations under the Title 19. Setbacks and Screening. The Temporary Use Agreement established requirements that Tent City 4 must be located at least 20 feet from any abutting residential property, and that a sight- obscuring fence and/or vegetation shall be provided within this area. These requirements were based partly on the perimeter screening requirements for “Multifamily Development” uses located adjacent to “Single-Family Residential ” uses as specified by MICC 19.12.040.B.7. These requirements were met by Tent City 4 with the exception of a minor encroachment on the 20 feet setback that was immediately remedied after the encampment was notified of the problem. Exterior Lighting. The Temporary Use Agreement established requirements that exterior lighting associated with Tent City 4 must be directed downward, away from adjoining properties and contained within the temporary homeless encampment. This provision was based partly on MICC 19.12.070, which requires that exterior lighting for regulated developments must be shielded or located to confine light spread and the associated negative impacts within the site boundaries. The City received no recorded complaints regarding light spillover impacts on surrounding properties. AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 29 Density/Intensity of Use. In the Agreement, Tent City 4 was limited to a maximum of 100 persons, but still must meet all setbacks as well as health and safety issues. The Agreement stated that in exigent circumstances, this number could be exceeded if a person or persons seek shelter overnight. Parking. The Agreement required a minimum of 26 off-street parking stalls on Saturdays, Sundays and after 6:00 p.m. on weekdays. A minimum of 8 off-street parking stalls were required at all other times. Portable Toilets. MICC 19.06.010 prohibits the use of portable toilets except for emergency or construction use. In the case of Tent City 4 at MIUMC, portable toilets were allowed as a reasonable and necessary accommodation. The Temporary Use Agreement required portable toilets that were serviced on a regular basis. There was concern by neighbors regarding odors from the toilets, and servicing prior to 7:00 a.m. Chapter 15.14 MICC – Unlawful Cross-Connections Description: Chapter 15.14 regulates connections to the use of City utilities. Experience: Water system backflow prevention. Potable water was supplied to Tent City 4 by a hose connection to an existing hose bib on the exterior of the church building. Under the provisions of MICC 15.14.030 Backflow Prevention Devices Required, it was determined that appropriate backflow prevention was advisable to prevent any potential for water system contamination. An approved backflow prevention device was installed by Tent City 4. This device was inspected and approved by the city’s certified cross-connection control inspector and its continued use was verified by other inspectors on several occasions throughout the Tent City stay. Sanitary sewer connection. Grey water from a portable shower facility and hand washing stations was collected in a sump and pumped to a sanitary sewer connection in MIUMC property. This system and the connection were inspected and approved by the city utilities inspector. On one occasion power to the sump pump was inadvertently disconnected and a small quantity of grey water overflowed the sump but did not leave the site. The issue was immediately resolved upon notification of Tent City 4. (ix) Compliance with Codes.

AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 30 C. Police Experience with TC4 Prior to Tent City’s arrival on Mercer Island in 2008, the City’s Police Department had no direct experience with Tent City. Upon learning that Tent City may come to Mercer Island, the department reached out to other Police Departments in the area and requested a summary of their experience with the encampment in their communities. The Police Chief also interviewed several of the Police Chiefs, and did on-site visits of the encampment in Bellevue. Subsequently, the department drafted its Police Department Response Plan, wherein roles and responsibilities were outlined for the Police Chief, the Police Liaison, the Patrol Section, the Criminal Investigations Section, and the Records Section. The Police Department took the presence of Tent City very seriously, and dedicated resources to this encampment and the surrounding neighborhoods. In addition to general patrols of the area, officers also physically walked through the encampment 287 times during the three- month stay. The residents of Tent City welcomed the officers, and appreciated the time they spent with them. The residents in the surrounding neighborhoods also appreciated the extra presence of the patrol officers. A detective was assigned as the Police Department’s Tent City Liaison, which proved very helpful in many ways. He was able to build relationships with the residents of the encampment as well as the residents of the surrounding neighborhoods. He provided a consistent point of contact, and he was able to develop a solid understanding of the concerns that surrounded the encampment. The Police Officers made a total of nine arrests of Tent City residents. Five arrests were for outstanding warrants, two were for traffic offenses, one was for violation of a No Contact Order, and one was for a Domestic Violence assault. In addition to these five arrests, the officers also took 15 other reports ranging from graffiti and littering to reports of water balloons being tossed into Tent City. None of these reports were for felony crimes. The extra efforts relating to Tent City added to the Department’s daily workload, but it did not prove to be over- burdensome. Officers shifted their focus for portions of their shifts to the First Hill neighborhood rather than other areas of the city. However, this focus did not prevent officers from addressing calls for service in other areas of the city. Overall, the Police Department was able to effectively manage their core mission of protecting all the residents of this community. D. Fire Department Experience with Tent City Mercer Island Fire Department (“MIFD”) did not have any experience with a group such as Tent City 4 prior to their arrival in August 2008. In order to prepare for Tent City’s arrival, MIFD contacted several neighboring departments who had dealt with the challenges associated with having the camp in their operations area. MIFD discovered that every department reported Tent City 4 had very little impact on call volume and services including, both fire and EMS. After Tent City 4’s arrival, the Fire Marshal worked closely with the Tent City 4 staff and several city staff to ensure that the encampment complied with all appropriate fire codes. Tent AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 31 City 4 residents and staff were found to be very helpful and compliant with all MIFD and Fire Marshall requirements. Duty crews were asked to perform walk-through inspections and area familiarization on a daily basis to increase safety for the residents and our staff. The following is a brief summary of the fire department’s experience with Tent City 4: • Walk Throughs o Duty Crews - 32 o Fire Marshal - 4 o Deputy Chief - 2 o Fire Chief - 1 • EMS Calls o Approximately - 4 • Fire Calls o None • Service Calls o None Overall, Tent City 4 had a minimal impact on the calls for service to the Fire Department. E. Communication Experience with Tent City The possibility of hosting Tent City on Mercer Island was first introduced to the public in the Mercer Island Reporter on June 13, 2007 in an article submitted by the Mercer Island Clergy Association. The news was subsequently repeated in the Seattle Times and other major regional media. At that time, the City established a dedicated Tent City webpage at www.mercergov.org/tentcity. In mid-May of 2008, Mercer Island United Methodist Church (MIUMC) announced its intention to host Tent City 4. As details unfolded, the City worked closely with MIUMC to establish a process of public notification. On May 30, 2009, MIUMC submitted a press release to the Mercer Island Reporter. An article titled “Tent City Coming in August to Island” appeared on the front page of the June 4, 2008 edition. In addition, Rev. Dale Sewall published an article in the same edition of the Mercer Island Reporter on behalf of the Mercer Island Clergy Association. The news was also repeated in major media, including KING 5 and KOMO. On June 11, 2008 notice of the City Council Meeting at which the Temporary Use Agreement for Tent City would be discussed was published in the Mercer Island Reporter. The Temporary Use Agreement required that SHARE/WHEEL and the church conduct a neighborhood meeting a minimum of 20 calendar days prior to the opening date of the temporary homeless encampment, and that notice of the meeting be provided to residents within 600 feet of the church. SHARE/WHEEL and MIUMC hosted a public meeting on July 9, 2008. Notice of the meeting was hand-delivered to all residents within 600 feet of the church. Throughout the time leading up to and throughout Tent City 4’s stay on Mercer Island, the City updated information on the City’s website and published information in the City’s weekly e-newsletter, MI Weekly, which is distributed to about 500 subscribers throughout the Island. The City’s Communications Coordinator became the primary contact for media inquiries, AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 32 and the story continued to garner attention of regional media including KUOW and major network stations. Citizen comments were received through email, phone calls and during the appearances portion of City Council meetings. From June through December 2008, approximately 110 comments were heard from 83 individuals at Mercer Island City Council Meetings. City staff has responded and continues to respond to public records requests for documents regarding Tent City. II. CONCLUSION Staff will continue to bring more information to the Planning Commission at the November 18, 2009 hearing, after more input is received from the community at large at the October 22, 2009 community meeting. AB 4492 Exhibit 4 Page 33 Memorandum City Attorney’s Office Date: October 1, 2009 To: City Planning Commission From: Katie Knight, City Attorney RE: Overview for Discussion of Temporary Encampment Regulations I. OVERVIEW The briefing on October 7 is intended to provide the Planning Commission with an overview of the draft temporary encampment ordinance, and to provide feedback on the experience of Tent City 4 when it came to the City last year. The formal public hearing on the ordinance itself will be held November 18, 2009. The meeting tonight is informational only. The draft ordinance is provided to present a context for discussion for future regulation of temporary encampments, based upon the experience from last year. At this early point, it does not represent a “staff recommended ordinance.” It merely represents a starting point for the Commission’s and community’s discussion. A. Background For three months beginning in August of 2008, the Mercer Island United Methodist Church hosted Tent City 4, a temporary homeless encampment managed by SHARE/WHEEL, a non- profit homeless advocacy organization. At the June 20, 2009 Council Mini-Planning Session, the City Council directed staff to prepare a draft ordinance for Council’s consideration. The City Council asked to have an ordinance ready to pass by January 31, 2010. The Council directed staff to hold a public meeting with the First Hill neighborhood to receive their input and perspective regarding their experiences related to the 2008 hosting of Tent City, as well as a community wide public meeting to respond to the draft ordinance. City staff held a public meeting on August 25th at the Mercer Island United Methodist Church to receive input from the greater First Hill Neighborhood. On October 22, the City will hold a community-wide open house at the Community Center at Mercer View (“CCMV”) to provide a forum for additional public input, to discuss the lessons learned from the Tent City experience, and to provide an overview of the draft Temporary Encampment ordinance. The major areas of discussion will include: AB 4492 Exhibit 5 Page 34 • Legal Structure Legal/constitutional requirements Legal precedent • Communications Public noticing of neighbors, community Opportunities for public involvement • Location of future Tent City Regulatory issues Benefits/concerns of site • Public Safety Fire safety Enforcement Emergency medical services Public health • Compliance City code requirements City Ordinance Tent City Code of Conduct B. EXHIBITS 1. Exhibit A is the draft Temporary Encampment Ordinance. 2. Exhibit B is the process timeline. 3. Exhibit C is a map of the City identifying the location of the religious institutions which may potentially host a temporary encampment and their relation to transit stops, schools and daycares. 4. Attached as Exhibit D is a comparison chart of the proposed ordinance and other Eastside City Ordinances. Note that the comparisons are being drawn to the actual ordinances themselves, not to subsequent permits issued pursuant to those ordinances. (The Issaquah example is a mix of the ordinance and the conditions placed on the permit under the broad “any mitigation necessary” provision as Temporary Encampments are shoehorned into Temporary Use Permits.) II. DRAFT ORDINANCE The Washington Supreme Court has unanimously determined that religious organizations are allowed to minister to the homeless, so there is no ability by municipalities to completely prohibit temporary encampments at churches. Municipalities are permitted, however, to regulate such temporary use based on health, safety and welfare issues. In the land use realm, a number of strategies exist which allow local governments to address regulation of temporary uses, such as through temporary use agreements, permits, or ordinances. The temporary use agreement is useful in negotiating specific issues which have not been encountered previously. Some uses AB 4492 Exhibit 5 Page 35 may be generally authorized by ordinance, but any regulations are provided specifically in the temporary use permit itself. Some ordinances permit the use and contain the regulations within the body of the ordinance itself, and may not require a permit. Other ordinances do a blend of both. In reviewing temporary encampment regulations of other eastside municipalities, some choose to address the health, safety and welfare issues within the ordinance itself. Others address such regulations via temporary use permits. The draft ordinance provided by Mercer Island staff puts the majority of regulations within the ordinance, while allowing flexibility for the Code Official to adopt additional requirements in the permit itself based on the location of the temporary encampment. A matrix is attached to demonstrate the draft ordinance compared to other cities’ ordinances (as opposed to temporary permits). Again, the Code official may require additional site specific conditions in the permit which are not currently identified in the draft ordinance. The key provisions of the draft Temporary Encampment Ordinance are as follows: • Maximum stay of 90 days at one location, in any 12 month period • No permit is granted for a temporary encampment proposed to commence on site within one mile of any site that contained a temporary encampment within the last 12 months • Although Design Review would not apply for temporary encampments, screening and setback provisions are required. • Temporary Encampments cannot reduce a site below the minimum allowed parking requirement for the other uses on the site. • Public notice is required for all property owners within 600 feet, rather than the standard 300 feet. • The Code Official has the discretion to require an informal neighborhood meeting during the comment period. • Criminal background Warrant and sex offender checks are required of Temporary Encampment residents. • Maximum amount of 100 persons. • Compliance with Seattle-King County Health requirements and all state and city codes regarding drinking water connections, solid waste disposal, electrical systems, cooking and food handling and fire resistant materials. • Hold harmless agreement required. • Compliance with code of conduct. Some other elements for discussion were not included in the current draft ordinance for a variety of reasons. Some are more appropriate for site-specific issues and can be addressed in the temporary encampment permit. Others are addressed through other code requirements. Some are likely to be considered unconstitutional. Those proposals are as follows, with some italicized commentary as appropriate: • Permit fee: (highest cost in other cities is approximately $1600) AB 4492 Exhibit 5 Page 36 • Identification of Adverse Effects. “ The applicant shall identify potential adverse effects of the proposed temporary encampment on neighboring properties and the community and shall develop measures to mitigate such effects. The applicant shall submit a temporary encampment impact mitigation plan with the permit application. The plan shall contain a narrative and drawing(s) that describe, to the satisfaction of the community development director, the measures the applicant will use to mitigate the effects of the temporary encampment. At a minimum, the plan shall specifically describe the measures that will be implemented to satisfy the approval criteria provided in the MICC except for criteria specifically waived by the Code Official. The plan shall include a code of conduct and the names and phone numbers of all persons comprising the applicant. The form and mitigation plan shall be as specified by the community development director, but the elements of the plan shall be bound together. The approved temporary encampment impact mitigation plan shall be signed by the Code Official and the applicant and implementation and enforcement shall be a condition of the permit approval.”: (such adverse effects addressed via the ordinance and site-specific permit) • Smoking requirements. Any established area for smoking shall conform to the following stipulations: A. Noncombustible, approved ashtrays shall be provided; B. A “designated smoking area” sign shall be posted C. The area shall be located as far from the tent area as possible, the location will be subject to inspection by Fire Marshal Office. (smoking requirements addressed via site-specific permit) • Tent requirements: “Tents over 200 sf shall be flame treated.” (already addressed via requirement for compliance with codes/site-specific permit) • Conduct and Security Requirements: “Any temporary encampment shall comply with the City regulations regarding lawful behavior set forth in Mercer Island Code. Any temporary encampment shall provide all required legal access to public areas of the site by the City of Mercer Island Police Department and any other relevant law enforcement agency at all times.”: (already required) “ Additionally, where deemed necessary by the Development Director or the Police Chief, the applicant shall provide for the following: 1. Verifiable Identification Required: The applicant shall take all reasonable and legal steps to obtain verifiable identification, such as a valid driver’s license, government issued identification card, military identification card, or passport, from all prospective and current camp residents. 2. Other individuals who are turned away from the camp shall be handled as follows: 3. A) Applicant shall walk the individual to the bus stop and wait with them until the bus arrives; B) A camp vehicle shall be used to drive the individual to the closest available bus service or C) A taxi or volunteer driver shall be called and the homeless encampment security workers shall be available to wait with the person. Taxi vouchers shall be available from sponsor when buses are not operating: AB 4492 Exhibit 5 Page 37 (may be addressed in site-specific permit) • Sidewalk monitor requirement. “Host shall provide sidewalk monitors during normal hours when elementary, junior high or high school students are going to and from the bus stops.” (may be addressed in site-specific permit) • Prohibition of neighborhood security foot patrols. “Residents and guest of encampment shall not perform neighborhood security foot patrol into the adjoining residential neighborhood.”: (Unconstitutional to prohibit freedom to move about on public right-of-ways and public areas) • Prohibition of Neighborhood Trash Patrols: “Neighborhood and trash patrol by residents and guests of encampment in adjoining residential neighborhood is prohibited.”: (Unconstitutional to prohibit freedom to move about on public right –of-ways and public areas—note that Bellevue’s ordinance actually requires such patrols) • Quiet hours requirement. “Quiet hours at encampment shall be between 9:00 PM and 8:00 AM.” (may be addressed in site-specific permit) • Visiting Hours. “Visiting hours for Guests are between 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM. Guests must check-in and provide valid form of identification at camp security location and must leave by 9:00PM. Guests are prohibited from staying over- night in the camp.” (potentially unconstitutional elements—some aspects addressed elsewhere) • Failure to apply for Permit. “If a temporary use for which a permit would be required is established without a permit first having been obtained, the Planning Director shall require all activities associated with the encampment shall cease immediately and the site shall immediately be vacated and restored to its pre- existing condition unless and until such time as a temporary use permit has been obtained.” (may be addressed elsewhere in the City Code) III. CONCLUSION Staff will continue to bring more information to the Planning Commission at the November 18, 2009 hearing, after more input is received from the community at large, at the October 22, 2009 community-wide meeting.
