SALT LAKE CITY — There are only a few more days left, but until February 19, people who are experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake City are welcome in the yard of Darin Mann.
“It’s been going great so far,” Mann said. “No drugs, no violence, or you’re out. One strike policy.”
Mann says his neighbors have had mixed reactions to the encampment in his yard. And it’s made an impression on a few of Mann’s new tenants, too.
“If homeowners put their stuff on the line, like Darrin has,” said Brandy Najera, who’s staying at the camp, “maybe a lot of us would have more hope.”
Mann has settled on a limit of ten people experiencing homelessness who can camp on his yard at one time. However, health officials have ordered the camp to be removed by the 19th of this month.
I have an idea for a future in-depth report. How do I tell you about it?
