With new, heated tent, officials intensify effort to relocate residents of Hiawatha Avenue homeless camp


November 29, 2018

Minneapolis city officials and American Indian nonprofits are stepping up a campaign to encourage residents of a large homeless camp in south Minneapolis to seek shelter from the cold.

On Wednesday, Minneapolis Fire Department crews erected a large, heated army tent across the street from the encampment on Franklin and Hiawatha avenues. The tent will serve as an impromptu dining hall and meeting space for the approximately 200 people still living at the camp, including some who have been sleeping in tents at the site since July.
