The Neighborhood Association in the Pearl is considering legal action against the city of Portland, after the city announced plans to relocate the Right 2 Dream Too camp.
The city announced plans earlier this weeks to move the camp from 4th Avenue and West Burnside to underneath a ramp that leads to the Broadway Bridge.
The association say they're worried about the welfare of the homeless. "To me, these people are not lepers," said one resident. "I respect them. I think we should find them something decent."
Residents of the Pearl District say their also concerned about their own safety as well as the look of the area.
