Long Beach city officials considering sanctioned homeless encampments

Local news

Long Beach officials are looking at the possibility of creating sanctioned homeless encampments in the city.

The Homeless Services Advisory Committee recently started looking into the possibility, and a report was requested by and given to officials.

Other West Coast cities like Seattle, San Francisco and Portland have sanctioned homeless encampments in place, and officials say these types of encampments are a potentially low-cost and safe way to provide for homeless people.
