Berkeley RV ban poised to begin

On February 11, Berkeley City Council approved safe overnight parking for a total of 25 RVs in six scattered city-owned sites. While safe parking will provide a brief respite for a small number of unhoused Berkeley residents, these spots will be the catalyst of an otherwise total eviction of RV dwellers from the City of Berkeley.
