[ARCHIVED] Influx of Homeless Located in the City Center

Influx of Homeless Press Release-01

Influx of Homeless Located in the City Center

On August 31, the San Joaquin Sherriff’s office conducted a clean out of a homeless camp located along the Mokelumne River under Highway 99.  This has displaced approximately 40 individuals, along with all their belongings.  Some of these individuals have moved into the City and residents have reported noticing an influx of homeless around the downtown area. Our staff is aware of the situation, and we ask for your patience while we work through the necessary details to provide a safe place for our unsheltered population to reside.

In the upcoming weeks, CalTrans will be cleaning out homeless camps along Kettleman Lane and Highway 99 and we anticipate the movement of homeless again.  

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Neighborhood Services via email at
