MEDIA ALERT: Meeting to discuss East Kearney homeless camp outreach moved to Holiday Inn (North) Hotel & Suites
The Thursday, May 18 meeting to discuss a multi-agency outreach effort at a homeless camp on East Kearney has been moved to Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites, 2720 N. Glenstone. The meeting will still take place at 1:30 p.m.
While a firm timeline has not been established, outreach is likely to begin in early June. Plans include assessment and case management for the campers, including overnight shelter and connection to other services (such as housing, treatment, homeless court, basic needs and IDs).
Following the outreach, the City’s Building Development Services department will post “No Trespassing” signs on the property and will provide adequate time for campers to leave the area.
Once the area has been cleared of campers, BDS will clean up the property and trim trees and underbrush to allow visibility throughout the property to discourage future camping.
