City staff are exploring authorizing a “tent city,” a move that would make the Beach the first community in the state to sanction a homeless encampment – if the City Council approves the idea.

Mayor Will Sessoms, however, said he doesn’t support it.

“I just don’t see it happening,” Sessoms said. “I could not recommend it because I do not want to encourage homelessness. I want to work to keep people from being homeless.”

Andrew Friedman, director of the city’s Housing and Neighborhood Preservation Department, said officials are looking into how such an encampment would be operated, including issues involving policing, sanitation and the duration of its existence.
