Homeless relatives leaving Madison park immediately after neighbor issues

MADISON (WKOW) — A Madison metropolis official says a homeless household in a tent in a metropolis park will be leaving the site, immediately after residents expressed issues and some forbade their children from visiting the park unsupervised.

A relatives member states the tent camping at Glenwood Children’s Park on Glenway Road commenced just after the family was evicted from a town-supported hotel area.

“With respect to folks camping at Glenwood, outreach personnel, doing work with Town officers have arranged to support move them to an substitute area that is better supported with sanitation amenities,”  Madison Local community Improvement Director Jim O’Keefe tells 27 News.

“Tenting in Glenwood Children’s Park is not supported by the Government Purchase the Mayor issued this spring.  That Get was fairly narrowly written.  It temporarily authorizes encampments on City-owned house that satisfy specified conditions, e.g., not within 500 feet of residences, not in a site vulnerable to flooding, and many others.  The Glenwood web site does not meet up with either of all those standards,”  O’Keefe says.

A lot more consideration turned to tent encampments in city parks for the duration of the pandemic just after the suspicious demise of a camper, Tyrone Flood, 54, at Reindahl Park before this thirty day period.
