Salem proposes end to homeless camping in city parks

0 0 about 1 month ago
The Salem City Council has proposed a plan to phase out camping in city parks. In March, the city passed an emergency declaration to allow people who were homeless to camp in two city parks in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Now, they plan to open more shelter options as camps are phased out in the coming months. Jimmy Jones, the executive director of the Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency, joins us to discuss the proposed plan.
