Coos Bay Temporary Lodging Ordinance


The Coos Bay City Council has passed a Temporary Lodging Ordinance that will facilitate organizations wishing to provide temporary locations for overnight stays. The ordinance will allow a non-commercial facility to temporarily house homeless individuals for up to 30 consecutive days and up to 90 days in a calendar year. The ordinance requires permitting approval through the city that would ensure the safety of those staying on the grounds and those in or nearby the facility. Such facilities would likely be churches or homeless non-profit organizations which couldn’t be located near schools, daycare or another facility providing the same service. It also requires insurance and bonding.
