THURSDAY: City meeting about Camp Second Chance’s future

(WSB photo from June)

If you’re interested in the city-sanctioned “tiny house village” encampment on the Myers Way Parcels, Camp Second Chance, tomorrow night is the first major city-convened meeting about it in more than a year. In September, the city announced it had extended the camp’s permit another 6 months; what happens after that is expected to be discussed at tomorrow’s meeting, which was announced a month ago. It’s happening 6:30-8 pm Thursday (November 21st) at the Joint Training Facility (9401 Myers Way S.), a few blocks north of Camp Second Chance, which has been on Myers Way almost three and a half years. As of the most-recent Community Advisory Committee meeting, 33 men and 17 women were living at CSC.

    The camp at Northlake is a prime example of how the City has mismanaged this entire Tent City experiment.  Even the expert on homeless matters the City hired has spoken against tent encampments, yet the City still goes down that path.

      This site has almost nothing in common with the Nickelsville situation, except that both have tiny houses and otherwise unhoused residents.

        Yes, it has become tiny houses and from what I recall it is the original Nickelsville that had been down the hill from Highland Park four or so years ago.

Sorry, comment time is over.
