Safe Parking


The Safe Parking Pilot Program is a parking program operated on City-owned property outside of the public right of way that is a PILOT PROGRAM for the Gilroy Compassion Center. 

This pilot program would create a safe and secure place for car and recreation vehicle dwellers to park and sleep, increase access to available services, reduce traffic and the number of people living illegally in their vehicles on the streets, decrease enforcement actions and resulting legal costs to homeless individuals, and provide resources to secure permanent housing and economic stability.
