Homeless tent city at North Beach in Burlington - Seven Days

Burlington’s most popular beach will also be home for the homeless this summer, at a city-sanctioned tent community. It will be located in an area formerly occupied with camp trailers, which won’t be allowed this year.

"ANEW Place will begin operating a 30-tent shelter on June 1, according to executive director Kevin Pounds. Guests had previously stayed there in leased camper-trailers. The popular spot will otherwise be closed for camping this season, though pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles can still access the property, according to the Burlington Parks, Recreation and Waterfront Department. City officials did not immediately return an interview request."
