Downtown West Palm Beach wishes to promote the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, visitors, and businesses. To that end, Ordinance No. 4934-21 regulates and prohibits sleeping and “camping” in public areas, as well as in the entrances and exits of the City's businesses.
However, the City wishes to make enforcement of such prohibitions applicable only after the City has undertaken significant outreach measures, including offering social service and/or housing/shelter assistance and where housing/shelter is available. 

I support the "Prohibited Sleeping/Camping" Ordinance No. 4934-21 and urge the City of West Palm Beach to enforce this ordinance by maintaining a coordinated effort between the WPB Police Department, the Homeless Outreach Team, and the Security Ambassadors.
