What can we do to get the area cleaned up under I65. I drive thru that way every day. Its a shame the way all the trash is laying around there and that someone has spray painted under there as well. The city needs to do something about this. You should be able to drive down the street without having someone holler at your car or have to stop because the homeless are in the middle of the street.

That situation will be eliminated soon as individuals staying there are being relocated due to bridge construction. Without checking notes, I believe the area must be cleared by first week of September at the absolute latest.

Also, thanks to city officials who came out yesterday and joined the task force and service providers in actually walking the area people are staying and talking to impacted individuals, a dumpster is being placed in the area. This should help keep the area cleaner, eliminate safety and liability concerns related to city workers collecting bagged trash, and save ministry resources which were being used hauling trash out of the area, allowing Paul and his organization to concentrate getting people off the streets, which benefits the entire community.

Lisa Gill and Dennis Julius both took the time to come out, hike through camps and engage those we met. Bagged trash was picked up by the end of the day, and it's my understanding Lisa led the effort to have the dumpster placed which will be of great help going forward.
