Measure O And Homelessness Crisis  

Measure O, the Emergency Shelter and Enforcement Act of 2022 (ESEA) was passed by City of Sacramento voters in November 2022.  A key provisions of Measure O takes effect on June 21, 2023.  The ESEA creates a limited obligation on the City of Sacramento to expend resources to take specific actions to address the homelessness crisis in the City, subject to budget constraints and the establishment of a partnership agreement with the County of Sacramento. 

The City/County Partnership agreement is in place now.  Residents can file with the City Clerk a Notice of Violation and Demand to Abate that asks the City to abate unlawful camping violations or unlawful storage violations on public property. The City must inspect the location and respond to the resident within 20 days.

If the City refuses or fails to abate the violation, the resident may appeal the issue to a hearing examiner. If the hearing examiner orders the City to abate the violation, the City may be liable for the resident’s costs and attorney’s fees.
