Salem to explore lifting homeless camping ban in some commercial areas


SALEM, Ore. (KPTV) -- The Salem City Council voted Monday night to consider lifting a tent-camping ban in some commercial areas.

In a contentious 5-4 vote, the council decided it will explore an option to keep the controversial ban in place around downtown Salem, in city parks and in residential areas.

The council expects to take up the topic at its Feb. 10 meeting.

Councilors in December enacted a tent camping ban on all public property. City leaders aimed to cleanup unsanitary conditions and appease a business community that complained that the homeless were driving away customers.
