We have great news to share with you and our community. After months of our reporting and advocacy, conversations with the City, community involvement and media coverage, the Estevan Park fentanyl camp has finally been cleaned up and the park has been returned to the neighborhood and community!
TCFC and Pima County are moving forward with real solutions. We are hopeful that this is a sign that the City of Tucson sees the urgency of what our community is dealing with and is ready to be part of the solution as well.
When encampments like this are cleaned out it is a huge endeavor. We know that the City staff that has to physically perform this action and TPD do not have an easy job and we appreciate the job they did today. Part of this process is making sure that all of the inhabitants are given a 72 hour notice and are provided with shelter and treatment options. We hope that many of these individuals were receptive and took the opportunity to receive help. It is simply not humane to enable people to live in such dire and desperate conditions. We must continue to offer treatment and support to those in need, yet enforce our laws and hold people accountable.
