SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Bay Area is roughly five -months away from the kickoff of Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s stadium.
Because many of the festivities are taking place in San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is scrambling to get homeless encampments cleared away before the fans descend.
Kron4’s Maureen Kelly spoke to the mayor about his plan and got reaction.
Mayor Lee is getting the message out now that not everyone is welcome to the party.
He’s trying to dis-invite the homeless camping out in that section of the city.
He states “I am taking the Super Bowl as an opportunity…we see entire encampments…let’s help these people long term basis.”
Part of Ed Lee’s long term plan is to move some of these people into a new navigation center which opened last spring where whole encampments can move into including pets he’s also got 500 units of affordable housing for the homeless expected to be ready to go by the end of the year.
