City commissioners will consider an ordinance regarding the prohibition of camping in the downtown district.
In July, commissioners rejected an ordinance that would have prohibited camping in city parks and on city property along the Kansas River. Instead commissioners said they would continue to rely on the public trespassing ordinance, which requires that campers be given a warning before they can be removed or arrested. Some neighbors had requested the ordinance because of concerns related to homeless camps in the area. The proposed ordinance would not specifically apply to parks, but would make it illegal to camp on the public right-of-way or on public property within the C-3 zoning district, which encompasses the downtown area.
