City of Fort Collins Closing Down Homeless Tent City
The City of Fort Collins has started the process to disband a temporary homeless "tent city" in Old Town.
The Coloradoan is reporting that The City of Fort Collins posted a sign at the entrance of Heritage Park that stated tents must be removed by 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Heritage Park is located right next to the Northside Aztlan Community Center, which was turned into a emergency homeless shelter after COVID-19 forced its closure for recreational use.
However, shortly after the closure, the community center parking lot was filled by overflow from the center, and multiple tents, RV's and other shelters appeared in the park next to the center.
