Medford, OR – According to the city officials, this was the 4th event and it was reportedly hosted by Ward 3 Councilors Kevin Stine and Chad Miller.
City officials announced that 130 community members attended the event, and the panel answered around 80 questions from the audience during the Q&A session.
When City staff went out and looked for the new Urban Campground site, there were certain parameters that had to be followed, including that it had to be near a bus line and service providers needed to be close by.
The City identified a few potential sites, but most of them were sold. The owner of the McAndrews site was willing to sell the property to the City, and the site was a good match for the Urban Campground.
The City plans to host more town hall meetings in the future and will provide information on our website when those details become available.
