  • Recommendation:
    1. That Council approve the draft Public Space Use By-law, as attached to report 2024-76, and incorporating Council's feedback at their February 14, 2024 meeting that staff be directed to place the by-law on the February 27, 2024 agenda for final adoption after which the by-law will come into effect on March 1, 2024.

    2. That Council respectfully request that the County of Wellington supply the necessary resources and tools, as well as monthly statistics regarding daily availability and access to accessible permanent shelter for all those on the “by name” list, as well as data on the number of offers made to individuals for accessible permanent shelter where the individual has turned down the offer.

    3. That Guelph’s advocacy efforts continue with the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) and the Provincial government to address the need for greater municipal funding to deal with housing instability issues, legislative reform to address public space use by-laws, and greater health care funding to address urgent community need connected to mental health and substance use issues.
