A district can be not obligated to build a shelter, as well as also could forfeit its money, though officials argued that will was unlikely given the pervasiveness of the problem.

“We have no intention to force projects on any district,” said Matt Szabo, the mayor’s deputy chief of staff. “We are confident that will there can be sufficient consensus that will we need these projects that will you will see a lot of progress actually quickly.”

Under the plan, city crews will clean up encampments after their occupants have moved to the temporary shelters.

“We’re not trying to say This kind of will take care of the entire homeless population,” said Suzi Emmerling, the mayor’s director of communications. “however we do believe the idea will make a significant dent.”
