Camp Unity proposes homeless encampment at St. Jude's Parish

The encampment is scheduled to open February 3
"The only new information related to encampments is a resolution to the fees. The new fee is $2,684.36. No new ordinances have been approved by the City Council with respect to encampments.  Please refer to RZC 21.46 Temporary Uses for relevant Code language.  Please let me know if you have any additional questions?  Thank you."

What is wrong with this picture?

Homeless people are still living in freezing tents because they can't find an affordable apartment or room to rent in Redmond or anywhere.

The Tent City happens so frequently that the city now recycles the sign with new information taped on. Meanwhile, the downtown is being torn up and replaced with apartments and condos with MONTHLY rents that exceed the encampment's $2,684 permit fee.

This is all brought to us by the appropriately named "Department of Planning and Community Development."
