Minneapolis Housing Policy Coordinator letter to city council on not closing encampment


Presented without comment for now, except that it took massive pressure to get the city to talk to residents.  "Yesterday, City leaders and outreach teams met with people staying at the encampment located near 2nd and Girard Avenues N.  The meeting was in response to a direct request from those living at the encampment. The residents of the encampment are actively working to find more permanent housing and they requested more time to complete this process. As a result of this conversation we will not close the encampment as planned this Friday."

Encampment in North Minneapolis threatened with destruction by the city on February 26th


This is a press release put out by Near North camp residents and supporters.

The current standing is the threat of eviction has moved to February 26th due to concern for police personnel to be participating during subzero degree weather.
