The Bend city council recently agreed to revisit their protocols for deciding when to remove a homeless camp. Unlike some other cities in Oregon, Bend will aim not to sweep camps if at all possible. Instead, city council members are focused on creating at least 500 more shelter beds. Mayor pro-tem Gena Goodman-Campbell explains the city’s approach to homelessness.
