In this episode, we talk with members of Medford's homeless population on the subject of the city's new anti-camping ordinance, which seeks to ban all forms of tent camping within city limits as well as ban camping outright on the Greenway during the summer fire season. In addition to these new rules being more strict than what Medford has had on the books until now, the punishments for violators are more extreme. Naturally, this means the new ordinance is highly controversial. In this outing, we'll hear from the homeless themselves, as well as volunteers working in aid efforts, about how the ordinance might affect life in the city and surrounding area.
