Quick news bit

Thurston County’s homeless encampment, Camp Quixote, will be coming to Lacey at the end of this month.

Tent City will find a home, for up to 90 days, at the Lacey Community Church on 19th Avenue, between College Street and Golf Club Road.

Residents will begin moving in on June 26 & 27.

Tent City was originally kept out of Lacey when the Lacey City Council voted to add additional requirements to the homeless camping ordinance.  After considering its options and a possible lawsuit, the City of Lacey revoted and agreed to accept tent cities with their current criteria.
