EUGENE, Ore. — On Friday, the City of Eugene will notify Whoville campers that they have to vacate their site on Broadway and Hilyard.
There are currently about 50 people camping at the site. The city says the property is not open for public use of any kind, so on Friday someone from the city who has been working with the group will ask them to leave.
They say they hope campers will leave on their own, before the city takes action. When that will happen is unclear. It isn’t known how much time the campers will have to pack up their belongings and find another place to go.
The city says it is working with a number of local social service agencies to help people transition from the camp. One option is staying at the city-approved rest stop located at the corner of Roosevelt and Garfield.
