Recommended site for relocating Minneapolis homeless camp gets preliminary nod from council

 

September 21, 2018



Minneapolis officials are recommending the relocation of a homeless encampment to a vacant lot, despite the opposition of two nearby charter schools and community members. But it’s only the first step in an already contentious decision on where to house dozens of people, many of them with substance abuse and mental health problems.

The City Council took a preliminary vote Thursday that endorsed the city-owned lot at 2600 Minnehaha Av. as the preferred site for a “navigation center,” where people being moved from the Hiawatha Avenue camp could live and receive services.
