coming up we will tell you which item was among the most popular sold a black friday. but first, the oakland mayor is live in the studio to talk about the city's plan to address the homeless crisis and tradition in the city of oakland and how you can get back to the community just in time for the holidays. shouldn't mean a change in standards. that's why - thanks to you -
as officials across the bay area grapple with the growing homelessness crisis, oakland is releasing a framework meant to keep more people from falling into homelessness and help people who already have nowhere to go home. were happy to cooling welcome back okland mayor libby schaaf. the talk about your framework. i would like to get your reaction to two items we saw pop up in the news.
i will start with what's happening in west oakland. this is where neighbors a someone who hasn't come forward has been placing large logs in the street. they think it is meant to keep either homeless people or people camping out in their rvs from coming into their neighborhood. what you think of this sort of display by oakland nurse and does the city have a plan to remove the locks? >> we do not condone blocking the public's right of way. that is against city laws and that is something that we can respond to if we receive a complaint. so far we have not received a complaint about these logs. >> but if you get a call you have to do something. >> that's it, we really recognize how frustrated people are. with homelessness. it is a sole scathing experience for all oakland nurse. all people in large cities who have seen this huge explosion.
that's why we are focused on fixing it but i will say there are some who are advocating for more sanctioned encampments. i do not support that. i believe we need to take our very limited resources and invest them first in preventing people from falling into homelessness and second, getting every house as quickly as possible. >> let's talk about some more anger resell bubble up in front of years front yard at city hall. we saw 22 people get arrested after protesters took over the front part of city hall they pitched tents and said they were upset about the crisis in oakland so some referred directly to the communities that you have been bringing up in oakland. there is a visceral anger and frustration among many people here in oakland. how do you respond to that and the protesters? >> oakland has always celebrated free speech and even protest. and certainly it is the right of protesters to engage in civil disobedience.
and that's what we had. again, i respect it and i very much agree with the passion and the issue that they have around homelessness. >> do you support the 22 arrest that they may? >> yes, i do and that is because there was activity that really was going beyond protest. people were starting to construct structures that were highly about flammable on city hall. so the plaza. and that is something that we cannot condone. when it rises to a level of safety, that is what we do need to balance our support of free speech and protest with the need to maintain public safety. >> let's talk about your past framework. you've alluded to three points. you said to prevent people from slipping into homelessness. it is easier to stop someone from going and then pull someone out. >> we have learned a lot about
how to be more focused and targeted in that prevention. we have a public/private partnership called keep oakland house and its first kept 1800 households from getting displaced. but we want to go further upstream. and while people have been house in lester focus on people facing eviction, we now know from an analysis of our data that so many people fall into homelessness from couch surfing or staying in hotels. or of course so many people living in their cars. so we are actually adjusting this program to help people that are aren't facing an eviction but are truly at risk of falling into homelessness. the other thing we have learned and this is exciting, by the end of this year we will have doubled our shelter capacity. we will have doubled the number of shelter beds in oakland from just two years ago. so roughly, from 800 to 1600.
but now we have to focus on making those beds much more efficient and short-lived. we want to rehouse people. and that requires investment in housing navigators and helping people subsidize the rent until the income is stabilized, and providing them support as they move back into housing. that is a big, big focus of this next stage for oakland. so that homelessness is something that is brief. if it happens at all. >> let's talk about one of the best parts of being mayor pick you get to take part in one of the big toy drive. >> absolutely. i need everyone to go out and buy toys. there are families that are struggling in oakland and you can absolutely make someone's christmas dream come true. you can be sent to yourself. please ring new unwrapped toys for kids 12 and under, no guns, nothing violent, but please bring them to city hall or any
fire station across the whole city. we really have so many families that need this help this holiday season. master we serve 8000 families and we are hoping to break that record this year so please participate in this great tradition. the mayors toy drive. >> oakland is can do it. quickly, -- thank you for joining us okland mayor libby schaaf. and happy holidays. let's get you caught up with weather and traffic we say hello to sal castaneda once again. >> we do have traffic that is going to be of normal and better than yesterday than it was raining. let's take a look at the worst commute on the east shore. 43 minutes from the bridge to the maze. the toll plaza backed up for 20
minutes in slow traffic because of a crash and the normal morning commute getting into downtown san francisco. san mateo bridge traffic is ok and is you had across the peninsula agency traffic is slow. as we go to steve at 8:18 it looks like sfo is back on his normal landing pattern. >> for now it looks good. maybe by this evening that will change but we do have a little break for the morning. mostly sunny, partly sunny, cloud cover is on the way. that lowell has tapped into some pretty deep tropical moisture and it will eventually move up here. we get a break from the rain and it's not far away. it is down there by the monterey peninsula and knocking on the door of the santa cruz mountains. i think you get there eventually. we get a break this morning but i will look for some rain to move back in this afternoon and tonight and we will get a break on thursday for 40s and 50s on the temps and again mostly sunny to the north but will turn cloudy to the south. central and southern california in on some pretty deep moisture and rain. the low will give us rain tomorrow. to date sun and clouds and rain.
