Camping ordinance

Camping at churches and other nonprofit organizations will be legal under a camping ordinance approved by the Coos Bay City Council in August.

Coos County updated its rules regarding removing homeless people camping on county property in an effort to comply with state law.

The biggest change in the new regulations approved this week is a requirement that all property left behind when someone is removed be held for 30 days before it can be disposed of. There are exceptions for trash, weapons, drugs or dangerous items, all that can be destroyed immediately.
