Camp Take Notice: Evicted

After nearly three years at the site off Wagner Road, the organized tent city known as Camp Take Notice in Ann Arbor was evicted by Michigan Department of Transportation.


The article fails to mention they'd been there for nearly three years, had long standing relationships with MDOT, city officials, and the police to try to work out a legal option, and that the subsidies cover less than half of the people that were staying there.  The subsidies, which will house around 30 people for one year, are very short-term solutions that will cost around half a million dollars.  The fence being constructed will cost nearly $20,000 and offers no solutions other than keeping people out of unused space.

  1. Residents of other cities or counties in this state must also know how to deal with eviction problems.
    First of all, it is necessary to be familiar with your rights as a renter.
    The state government of California has passed several laws to safeguard tenants against illegal eviction.
    Even then, many landlords still continue to violate the civil liberties of their tenants.
    if you need more informacon check fight eviction California
