Two Homeless Camps Cleared from Highway 101
By edhat staff
Two large homeless camps have been removed from the side of Highway 101 in Santa Barbara this week.
Both camps located near the Castillo and Haley Street onramp were overloaded with bicycles, tents, and a large amount of debris, reports John Palminteri of KEYT News.
The cleanup involved Caltrans, Santa Barbara Public Works, California Highway Patrol, Santa Barbara Police and homeless advocates. The people living in these camps were notified ahead of time of the cleanup and offered services.
These camps have been the source of recent fires along Highway 101 and the railroad tracks threatening nearby homes and property.
