Nickelsville looking for new locations as deadline looms
One location that has been announced sits in a vacant lot on the 2000 block of South Jackson Street in Seattle’s Central District. The property is owned by the Low Income Housing Institute, which is currently leasing the land to a local church.
But that space is only large enough to accommodate around 35 people; additional locations for the homeless camp are scheduled to be announced Friday.
Another issue that has arisen is that the number of people living in the West Seattle camp continues to remain at capacity, suggesting that the need for housing for the homeless exceeds even what Nickelsville provides.
