About Nickelsville Ballard

In 2015, the City of Seattle approved the creation of transitional encampments for homeless persons as a permitted use on city-owned property. The ordinance required the directors  of the Department of Planning and Development and the Human Services Department to adopt a joint rule establishing the requirements for community outreach, and encampment operations standards.

The following documents, required by the City of Seattle’s ordinance, provide detail about camp operations and management.
