Over the last few weeks my office has received about thirty emails and calls regarding unauthorized homeless encampments at the Lake City Post Office/Grocery Outlet and the Kingfisher Natural Area along Thornton Creek.
On behalf of my constituents I have reached out to the City’s Navigation Team, and they have responded to both of these locations. The City is now conducting intensive outreach to both of these locations with the goal of housing and sheltering their occupants, and will be removing human waste and debris from these areas as well.
I have attached my email correspondence from Fred Podesta, the head of the Navigation Team, to this post. I look forward to working with Mr. Podesta and others around our city to improve our homelessness crisis response. This issue will remain a top priority of my office.
