Homeless Sweeps Start Next Week In Portland

PORTLAND, Ore–after nearly six months of no sweeps, homeless  campers will begin receiving 2 day notice to move.  Before Covid-19 50 sites were cleaned out per week.  Portland City Council gave the directive for citywide cleanup to be reinstated.

Citizens have flooded city hall with phone calls and emails asking for help.  The first sites to be swept will be those that block sidewalks with 8 or more structures.  Anywhere  crimes are frequent, plus human waste and needles are visible. Excessive trash smells bad and becomes a fire hazard.
