City officials remain undecided on homeless camp at Lions Park

first_img“So they’ve just been moving from place to place, but not seeing them actually moving into housing.” said Denise Traficante, a Local Homeless Advocate,  “The Salvation Army has done a lot for the community and they have some wonderful programs, they’ve been around a very long time. But to do something for just 3 months I dont think is adequate.” Now the Mayor says his Homelessness task force would be working on other solutions to the issue along with the county, but in the meantime the camp at Lions Park is only growing.  2’s Review: ‘Nana Does Vegas’ at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre April 12, 2021 AdvertisementRecommended ArticlesBrie Larson Reportedly Replacing Robert Downey Jr. As The Face Of The MCURead more81 commentsGal Gadot Reportedly Being Recast As Wonder Woman For The FlashRead more29 comments AdvertisementDC Young Fly knocks out heckler (video) – Rolling OutRead more6 comments’Mortal Kombat’ Exceeded Expectations Says WarnerMedia ExecutiveRead more2 commentsDo You Remember Bob’s Big Boy?Read more1 commentsKISS Front Man Paul Stanley Reveals This Is The End Of KISS As A Touring Band, For RealRead more1 comments AdvertisementTags: Lions Parklocal Cape Coral man confronts WastePro worker with a gun April 2, 2021 RELATEDTOPICS Mayor Kevin Anderson said the homeless camp at Lions Park is only growing in size, while the city remains indecisive about how to tackle the homelessness problem. “Some people just have nowhere to go. They don’t have any money, they need help!”  said Rodie Fatteruso, who lost her home during the pandemic, “Really they should have did something to help homeless people. There are people out here who want to get help!” On Monday night, Mayor Kevin Anderson proposed a relocation of the homeless camp at Lions Park to a lot behind the Edison Avenue Salvation Army.

It was a temporary solution. But after that 90 days, we hoped we’d have a significant impact.” Anderson said. His hope was that being closer to the nonprofit would give people access to toilets, running water and other social services with security of a fenced lot. But other council members, and homeless advocates called the measure temporary, without any long term solutions.  Advertisement 2’s Review: ‘She Loves Me’ is as sweet as your first kiss March 29, 2021 Advertisementlast_img
