The number of tents in Minneapolis' Powderhorn Park - photographed Tuesday - has shrunk from 560 tents last week to 310.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board voted Wednesday night to cut the number of encampments spread across the city's parks, significantly reducing two sprawling encampments at Powderhorn Park.

The unanimous vote was prefaced by more than an hour of public comment in which dozens of residents protested against the homeless encampments, which they said have become the site of constant drug use, violence and other illicit behavior.

Sexual assaults, fights and at least one shooting have been reported in recent weeks at the Powderhorn encampments, and volunteers have scaled back their presence on the eastern camp.
