Residents of E Street encampment ‘frustrated’ by removal instructions

Residents living in the E Street encampment were removed from the site Thursday.

City officials gave verbal warning to the camp’s residents and posted signs on trees near the encampment two weeks before the planned removal. The residents alleged that officials were not clear about the cleaning process because the signs posted in the encampment had incorrect phone numbers and “unclear” instructions.

Officials said the encampment, located across the street from the former Red Cross building, was¬†cleared¬†because of health concerns about the camp’s residents and surrounding neighbors.
