Homeless camp faces eviction in Ann Arbor
Ann Arbor — People living in an Ann Arbor homeless camp are bracing for eviction from the privately owned woods where they’ve established their tent community.
The Ann Arbor News reports California-based Highridge Costa Housing Partners said Sunday it has authorized Ann Arbor police to clear the camp from the company’s property. Camp Serenity, as its residents call it, is situated along nature trails near a highway on the city’s southeast side.
The nonprofit group MISSION has provided tents, blankets and other supplies to the camp. MISSION President Sheri Wander says police have said eviction notices will be posted soon and campers will have one week to clear out. She says some people have already moved on, but seven or eight people remain at the camp and don’t know where to go.
