The cancer that is destroying formerly healthy cities such as San Francisco and Seattle started with just a few campsites such as this. If they are allowed to grow, the city begins to die.
They tried that in Cincinnati last Spring thru early Summer.
I have a suburban horse/chicken farm in the northeast corner of Cincinnati. And we are overwhelmed with raccoons and possums.
I was catching at least one a day with a high of four raccoons in a day in my live traps.
I would cart them all down to the tent city and let em loose. And bring a few packs of peanut butter crackers to hand out.
The fact that the tent city became overwhelmed with raccoons made it onto Bill Cunninghams radio show!
Add Colorado to the list!! Austin Texas is next!
If? The growth is well under way. No need to take any special effort to notify city/county officials, local Law Enforcement recorded it the first or second night.
The only issue is whether the growth of tent cities are part of some groups plan or due to fearful politicians, or both. If the former, it doesn't much matter the solution is not complicated; if the latter, the problem is much more difficult.
Even if you do not live in SF, Seattle or ATL, the problem is coming to a city very near to you.
The cancer that is destroying formerly healthy cities - is free drugs.
