City-approved homeless camp pissing off North Side residents

A hillside along Howard Street on the North Side is where several homeless people have set up camp.


You can't miss their tents and belongings, but one homeless man says they are allowed to be there.

"This is a campsite the city supposedly bought and the mayor supplied for homeless people," he said.

As it turns out, the man is right. It is part of a city initiative, sponsored by the Homeless Outreach Coordinating Committee. The Mayor's Office says these homeless people have the city's permission to be there and to live there.

Paul Hendrick is a homeowner above the camp on Compromise Street in Deutschtown and he's very angry.

"How would the mayor like us to camp out in his front yard – human feces, rats, just using the bathroom and doing what they want up there, litter," he said.
