Gray Area

@MayorofSeattle homeless plan says if tents show up in same spot(happening now in Little Saigon) after clearing, neighbors can contact city and crews will respond within 48hrs. But what if tents show up the across street? Do same enforcement standards apply?


Here’s what Deputy Mayor Tiffany Washington said last week when I asked how they would respond if a tent or RV returned to the same area after a clearing. Email or Find It Fix It, and city is supposed to address within 48 hrs.

Just to Be Clear

When city cleared S. Weller St last month, tents and structures were all set up on only one side of the street. Now there’s a new tent on the other side. So does that mean the process starts all over again from scratch or will city address new tent in 48 hrs?
