More Work

On Thursday city cleared encampments along E. Howell St. in Capitol Hill including one near Greek Orthodox Church with 3 people. But city did not include one that’s really problematic on 17th Ave. blamed for fires, drugs, and trash piles.

Capitol Hill Crisis

This is what it looked like for weeks leading up to Thursday’s sweep. And 17th Ave. is still a hot mess.

Next Stretch

Explosive growth of tents at 17th Ave and E. Howell St. First week of January, cops got called for “incendiary device.” Ended up being guy burning fire to stay warm. Camps remain major liability and drain on city.
