On Monday, I wrote a letter to Anchorage Parks and Recreation to urge that illegal encampments around the Chester Creek and Coastal Trail corridors be cleared.

Thank you to the Anchorage Assembly for voting to pass a resolution asking the city to immediately notice, abate, and clean up homeless camps.
