1. According to the 2019 Alameda County Point-in-Time Count, 50% of homeless people in Fremont live in a recreational vehicle, car, or trailer. Do you know or have you seen anyone living in a vehicle in Fremont? (Select all that apply.) I have seen people in Fremont living in their vehicle as their primary residence.
2. To what extent are you concerned about the needs of people living in vehicles in Fremont? (with 1 being "not at all concerned" and 5 being "extremely concerned") (Select one.)
5 – extremely concerned
3. What is your most important concern regarding the needs of people living in their vehicles? (Select up to three.)
People living in vehicles are vulnerable to crime., People living in vehicles do not have enough access to waste or sanitation services., Other - They dont have addresses and therfore cannot vote/apply for social services
4. To what extent are you concerned about how inhabited vehicles are impacting nearby residents, businesses, or traffic? (with 1 being "not at all concerned" and 5 being "extremely concerned") (Select one.)
1 – not at all concerned

5. What is your most important concern regarding inhabited vehicles on nearby residents, businesses, or traffic? (Select up to three.)
Other - They dont have addresses and therfore cannot vote/apply for social services
6. What additional services do you think are important to have at a safe parking site?
Union Representatives to help people apply for UNION jobs. City leaders responsible for implementing Tenants Unions, and Renters Rights legislation. Whats the point of getting people INTO housing, when all of the slumlords (yes, I checked the legal definition) in Fremont raise rents faster than employers increase working class peoples' wages? City of Fremont is setting working class people up for failure.
7. As the City explores the development of a Safe Parking Strategy, what would be the top three types of locations that you would like us to consider for safe parking? (Select up to three.) City, county, and/or state government parking lots, Other - Where people WANT to park, like in front of Tesla. You EVICTED people from there & just now ask "where should people park?". City of Fremont leadership is inhumane.
8. Are you part of an organization that may be interested in providing safe parking, or do you have any ideas for parking lots where safe parking could be located? Right in front of Tesla, where City of Fremont previously evicted people from. That was entirely inhumane, and now this survey is a Public Relations stunt. How about you enact rent control, and force all of these landlords to create SAFE living conditions, while charging rent that matches the lowest paid workers' wages? This forced gentrification has done more harm to Fremont in the last 10 years, than Covid-19 has done in 1 year.
9. Please tell us any other ideas that you have about a Safe Parking Strategy in Fremont. How about you enact rent control, and force all of these landlords to create SAFE living conditions, while charging rent that matches the lowest paid workers' wages? You cite and ticket people for living in their vehicles, tow their vehicles away with ALL of their belongings locked inside, and then send out an ONLINE SURVEY to ask "where should homeless people park"? Your cognitive dissonance is foul.

8. Are you part of an organization that may be interested in providing safe parking, or do you have any ideas for parking lots where safe parking could be located? The Newpark Mall is a perfect place for a safe parking lot. It has a large amount of space that is not used.

A safe parking site is a terrible idea with negative impacts to the surrounding neighborhoods and it's community members. The individuals who are living in their vehicles need to be treated.

9. Please tell us any other ideas that you have about a Safe Parking Strategy in Fremont. I am concerned that SPS locations not be placed in areas that are mostly residential. For example we have a church right across the street from us, but otherwise the area is densely residential. I think this situation would create conflict in the community as well as potentially effect property values, and even pose risks for people residing in SPS accommodations. We have had RVs park in this lot, more or less illegally, and I can state from experience that without a lot of support (bathrooms, water, garbage, sewage etc.) a location like this will become a mess before you know it. There are on the other hand plenty of churches and other parking lots that are not in residential areas, which might be a better idea for this sort of experiment.

Public health and sanitation
6. What additional services do you think are important to have at a safe parking site?
Easy access to daily amenities (groceries especially). Especially for people in RV's you want things to be walkable or bikeable (I have seen lots of RV's with bikes attached) so they don't have to drive a large gas-guzzling vehicle around town for basics. In that same vein, vehicle repair assistance could include vouchers for bike stores to get bikes fixed. (Some of the bikes I have seen are in pretty bad shape.)

Community-based organization and non-profit parking lots, City, county, and/or state government parking lots, Other - Locations that are walking distance to daily needs (groceries and services). Children should be placed close to their schools when in-person instruction resumes.
9. Please tell us any other ideas that you have about a Safe Parking Strategy in Fremont. Is it possible to rent vacant commercial properties to utilize the available space for access to sanitation and storage space? The closed Orchard Hardware at Mowry Landing has plenty of available parking (some behind the building to be less intrusive). They have restrooms and it might be possible to install a shower if it doesn't already exist. There is a supermarket and laundromat in the same complex. There's plenty of indoor space to install some lockable boxes for storage.

9. Please tell us any other ideas that you have about a Safe Parking Strategy in Fremont. I have a business in Fremont I’m always concerned about my employees and their safety when homeless people live on the sidewalk and dog park near my business and cause a lot of issues like trash in the street theft by nearby businesses breaking into buildings also I have concern about sanitary issues I currently have to lock my building all the time to keep people who are not allowed to be in the building that are homeless out of my building So I am for some sort of designated areas that would help people that are homeless still have to live out of their cars
