Interim Housing Working Group exploring options such as sanctioned camping

From CPR: "Grand Junction has invested millions in housing efforts in recent years, but city leaders continue to field calls for action to support the city’s unhoused residents and limit the public impacts of the crisis.

As long-term housing is developed, the city is asked to consider short-term measures that would allow people experiencing homelessness to have a safe place to rest.

Sometimes called “sanctioned camping,” the proposals range from safe parking areas for people living in their cars to micro-communities and public land where people can use tents."

Recently, MAP founder and executive director, Stephania Vasconez, sat down with CPR to discuss interim housing options and what that could mean for houseless community members in Grand Junction.
