Passing By Tent City Every Day
The original tent city was located right off of Highway 676. It was closed down and the residents there were placed in hotels. I refer to the people there as residents because they have their own little community. They even had a Mayor. And now we have another location where Tent City is and it’s right off of Admiral Wilson Blvd. On a good day you probably wouldn’t see it. On a bad day it’s very noticeable. The process to get low-income housing is hard. If it was easy I don’t think we’d have all of those people in Tent City.
