Homeless camp in Kzoo relocated after agreement with city

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — The City of Kalamazoo and people who experience homelessness have struck a deal.

The protesters who set up camp in downtown’s Bronson Park will move to the grounds of an abandoned fire station on Cedar Street. In return, the city will continue to work with protesters to help with affordable housing and public assistance.

On a hot, sunny September afternoon in downtown Kalamazoo, people experiencing homelessness sound hopeful the city is listening to their needs.      

“So, what they did is give us this property for 30 days as a show of good faith that they’ll work with us, so we decided to move out of Bronson Park as a whole to give them that, because they are working with us, they are showing by good faith to let us be on this property,” said Stuart Hamilton, who said he has been homeless for more than a year.
