Homeless move to Ypsilanti Township
Ann Arbor — Members of the homeless community evicted from a forested area in Ann Arbor have regrouped in Ypsilanti Township.
The Ann Arbor News reports the smaller group of eight people has set up a new camp in another forested area after being forced out of Ann Arbor earlier this month. They expect to have to move again soon.
Camp Serenity, as its residents called it, was situated along nature trails near a highway on the Ann Arbor’s southeast side. The people who lived there were formally evicted Dec. 2 after the city received complaints from neighbors.
Dale LaClair came upon the new camp near his home and helped the residents dispose of garbage bags. He says he might be willing to take the residents onto his nearby land if the township allows it.
