SAVANNAH, Ga. — Crews are clearing out some homeless camps east of downtown Savannah.
The Savannah Morning News reports that the cleanup is a joint effort between the city, the Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless and the Savannah Impact Program. It is being done with the help of volunteers.
Behind an area that workers cleared on Saturday, litter lined the wood line, which was still home to several tents and other structures. The structures were mostly devoid of occupants, who were told they needed to leave by July 12 so the area could be cleared to make way for construction staging for drainage projects.
