After summer in Minneapolis parks, homeless seek other spaces for winter

Brandon Harrison, 35, celebrated his birthday at a homeless encampment in Logan Park with his girlfriend Nichol Wyandt, 43, this week.

For months, the encampment at Logan Park in northeast Minneapolis has enabled a small group of homeless people to find food, clothing and stability, a respite from the insecurities of life on the street.

Within days, their permit will expire and the Logan tent community, like 14 others still in the city's parks, will have to disband. The Minneapolis Park Board is looking to clear remaining encampments before freezing weather sets in.

Each encampment has been responsible for finding the next destination for its residents. Some are going to hotel rooms. Others are securing space in shelters or newly built tiny homes. Still others are relocating to the Midtown Greenway, setting up their tents underneath bridges or next to the bike trail.
