Subject: Chaparral Canyon Update
Thank you for contacting Councilmember Scott Sherman’s office and sharing your concerns regarding the homeless encampment. Keeping our neighbors safe is a top priority for the Councilmember. As soon as our office found out about the encampment and recent burglaries last week, Councilmember Sherman fast-tracked the cleanup of the canyon and has been in contact with SDPD and City Staff on a daily basis.
This afternoon I met with City Staff and (Police Community Relations)Officer Adam McElroy near the homeless encampment off of Del Cerro Blvd. Code enforcement placed notices (pictured below and required by law) on personal property located in the canyon and staff will be returning Wednesday afternoon to remove anything left behind.
I know that several people have asked why our office has not responded to posts on nextdoor.com and the reasoning is we simply do not have access to them as posts are only available to residents in the area. While certain City departments (ie. SDPD and PUD) have the ability to post on nextdoor.com, they only have the ability to view comments on authored posts. The Councilmember appreciates hearing from residents in the District and encourages communication by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 619-236-6677.
Thank you for your patience during this process and I will be sending another update after camp is removed.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to assist you.
Liz Saidkhanian, Council Representative
Councilmember Scott Sherman
