It is the purpose of this chapter to:
A. Prevent harm to the health and safety of individuals who habitate outside due to a lack of financial means to afford adequate shelter by establishing safe stay communities where adequate shelter is provided to the poor or infirm at no cost.
B. Prevent harm to the health and safety of the public and to promote the public health, safety and general welfare by prohibiting camping within all camping and outside habitation impact areas at all times, except as allowed within a safe stay community.
C. Prevent harm to the health or safety of the public and to promote the public health, safety and general welfare by making public streets and other areas readily accessible to the public and to prevent use of public property for camping and outside habitation purposes or storage of personal property which interferes with the rights of others to use the areas for which they were intended.
