Remember back in July when the city cleared dozens of RV’s and tents along this stretch of 3rd Ave in SODO? Officials said it was already planned and had nothing to do with the MLB All-Star Game coming to T-Mobile Park.
Well, all the fellas are back. It’s the same folks who have been cleared multiple times and know the game. All of them tell me they have been offered shelter and services numerous times. They don’t want to go to any future RV lots either because this is prime location near all the food banks, drug dealers, and it’s easy access to the heart of the city.
By the way, this is CM Tammy Morales’ (@CMTammyMorales, @TammyMoralesSEA ) District 2. She’s against the Mayor’s encampment removal strategy. Why won’t the city get ahead of this before it starts to spiral out of control? This should be getting cleared the moment one camper comes right back. It’s not fair to these SODO businesses.
