DENVER (CBS4) – More than 100 people packed a meeting Tuesday to learn more about a controversial ordinance to ban camping in the city.

The ordinance would make it illegal to set up tents, sleeping bags or other shelter on the 16th Street Mall, sidewalks and alleys by the South Platte River.

Opponents, including Occupy Denver, say the law criminalizes homelessness.

City council is expected to vote on the ordinance this summer.

    It doesn’t criminalize homelessness, it stops the city from being a urine soaked cesspool.

    Boulder got away with this, so I think it time for Denver to follow suit.
