Day After Sweep

This evening, the fence is up at the former King St. homeless encampment on @WSDOT property after Wednesday’s clear out in #Chinatown-ID. But multiple tents, a couch, and a generator have already popped up on the other side. These sidewalks are city of #Seattle‘s responsibility. How soon until crews move in and clear this out? Unreal. Residents and biz owners are afraid @govinslee will surrender #CID again. They want @mayorofseattle to continue with on going sweeps. These are the folks who have refused housing options. Still no sign of Councilmember Tammy Morales (@CMTammyMorales.) @JoeMcDermottWA @kcexec @seattlecouncil @kccouncil @CMSaraNelson @CMTMosqueda @D5Juarez @WAStateCommerce

The Other Side

At the former Jackson St. encampment in #Chinatown-ID, crews were still cleaning the trash and debris Wednesday. So much restoration work to be done. But it’s a start. @wastatepatrol standing guard at the read entrance. @GovInslee @MayorofSeattle @kcexec @JoeMcDermottWA @CMTammyMorales @SeattleCouncil @KCCouncil @CMTMosqueda @CMSaraNelson @d5juarez @wsdot @WAStateCommerce
