Haven closure not a solution

By From page A1 | October 14, 2013

Three of the four resident Community Council members for Hangtown Haven, Ken Green, James Adkins and Frank M., talked to the Mountain Democrat on Thursday, two days after they received word that the legal encampment will close on Nov. 15. The county did not approve the camp’s relocation to Perk’s Court, off of Missouri Flat Road, and the city of Placerville’s Temporary Use Permit allowing the camp to exist legally expires on Nov. 15. Hangtown Haven’s 30 residents, some of whom have the first stability they have known in years, will be back on the streets, looking for some place to live.
