Springfield Expands Homeless Car Camping

The Springfield City Council voted unanimously to expand the car camping program for the homeless. It is modeled after one in Eugene. Churches and businesses have been allowed to have one car or motor home on site but can now have three. Niel Laudati is the city’s spokesman.

Laudati: “The city provides a portable toilet and we do some trash service. It’s very inexpensive for us. But it gives people a chance to rest in a safer place and it’s worked out so well.”

Harwood: “I’m frankly speechless. I don’t know how to respond to people that think that radio waves are going to somehow cause a health effect. It’s patently ridiculous.”
