Steps are underway to dismantle a homeless camp in Vernon’s Polson Park.
“This looks like an encampment with tents and tarps, set up right along the creek,” Coun. Kari Gares said.
The new 37th Street shelter operated by Turning Points Collaborative has 80 beds, but people are still being turned away.
“It’s full every night and people are being turned away,” Coun. Kelly Fehr said. “I would guess there are about 20 or so.”
