A proposed camping ban to stop the homeless from sleeping on sidewalks in Denver is drawing heated debate from all sides of the issue.
In a preliminary vote, the Denver City Council approved a ban on overnight camping in the city.
Denver’s proposed camping ban is now heading to the full city council. On Tuesday a council committee heard testimony on the ordinance.
The Denver City Council will begin debating a proposed camping ban within the city limits this week. While Mayor Hancock and members of the business community point to the homeless issue at large, it is safe to say that a higher profile group of homeless have motivated the ban.
