Show Notes

Welcome back to Urban Planning is Not Boring! In this episode, we delve into the bipartisan alliance formed to address a growing crisis: homelessness. Inspired by a recent New York Times article titled "In Rare Alliance, Democrats and Republicans Seek Legal Power to Clear Homeless Camps," we explore the pressing issue of homelessness in the United States and the legal complexities surrounding the removal of homeless encampments from public spaces.

Join us as we discuss the legal challenge presented by the 2018 "Boise decision," and the motivations behind politicians from diverse backgrounds urging the Supreme Court to reevaluate the ruling. We'll also hear perspectives from homeless rights advocates who emphasize the importance of comprehensive solutions to address homelessness. The outcome of this legal challenge could have significant implications for how the nation tackles this ongoing issue.
