we're almost in our mid thirties. so while many say they could never think of leaving the bay area, others say it's a matter of quality of life. and for them, that quality of life is better somewhere else. in oakland, sal castaneda ktvu, fox two news. that's our show for today. thanks for watching the cost of california. you can watch all four episodes online. be good to each other. have a good day.t leaving rebecca behind. so if i can't get her rv running well, they're just going to have to tell both of us. despite facing threats of getting towed. some rv owners insist they will not leave the community they've created in berkeley. good evening. i'm greg lee. and for andre senior tonight, the city of berkley has given dozens of rv owners until this wednesday to relocate. offering them
permits to a brand new safe parking site two miles away. ktvu is emma gas spoke with rv owners resistant to moving and his live at the safe parking site tonight with details, emma. greg there are 40 available rv parking spots here at what's being called a safe parking spot on grayson street. the problem the city faces is convincing rv owners who are comfortable where they are to relocate here. they put a citation on the window. then in the same breath, they towed it the area of a thin harrison in northwest berkeley is home to more than 30. rv owners. amber whitson is one of them. the city has initiated a sweep of the area and she says last wednesday, city officials told her work van away. come this wednesday she worries rvs belonging to her and her neighbors are next. i'm not really looking forward to it, thankfully, little community that said, we're in. you know this got a lot of us support lot of supporters and, uh and i think we might. might just make
a stand here. the city has offered parking permits to rvs, allowing them to come to spark which stands for safe parking and respite kickstart operated by the berkeley nonprofit dorothy day house, along with them being able to park there. safely with their with the beautiful clean area is that they have the restrooms, clean water, but what dorothy day does is so much more. the problem is some rvs are inoperable and either don't have the gas or wiring to move there in the next few days. we're living a lot of people behind here, and that's exactly what we don't want to do is like. some people go to safety. and then some people just get told and lose their homes like that doesn't sit right. yesica prado, who sits on the board of where do we go? berkeley wants to negotiate with the city to bring those rvs into spark where rv owners will be provided weekly groceries, charging stations and mechanical support, among other amenities, according to the executive director of dorothy day house. she says. it's low
barrier and accommodating. we take everything on a person to person basis. it's not that stringent that we have to make hard fast rules. that's not the way life works. that's not the way dorothy day just business. rv owners told me they were concerned there were restrictions on how many pets were allowed at spark and that visitors may not be allowed. but the executive director of the dorothy day house, berkeley, said visitors and any number of pets are welcome as long as they don't pose a threat to public safety. and i reached out to the city of berkley for comment. they partner with the dorothy day house, berkeley on this site. but i've not yet heard back reporting in berkeley. demagogues continue. fox two news story will certainly keep following him. a thank you for your reporting. we have an update tonight to oakland's newest homicide case. a man is dead and his wife was injured after a home invasion and shooting. officers responded to reports of gunfire at a home on monticello in the maxwell park neighborhood around 11 30 last night,
