via WKYC:

There are concerns over what a development plan for The Flats could mean for Cleveland’s homeless community.

More than 30 people now live and camp along a section of the Cuyahoga River called “Irishtown Bend.” It is the region roughly between West 25th Street in Ohio City, and the river itself.

Some have been there for nearly 20 years.

But now, plans are underway to clear it out for a park and to reinforce it to prevent further erosion.

Groups involved say they will help the homeless, while homeless advocates say, they have yet to see proof.
