Pa. homeless camp eviction deadline pushed back
BRISTOL, Pa. - May 1, 2012 (WPVI) -- The eviction of a group of about 20 homeless people from a suburban Philadelphia camp has been pushed back to next week.
Residents of a homeless enclave near a hospital in Bristol, Bucks County had been ordered to leave by Tuesday, but the deadline has been pushed back to May 7. After that, police say workers will begin taking down their shelters.
The camp has existed for at least 20 years but the owner of the 23-acre property plans to excavate and build a warehouse. Plans for the warehouse were approved in 2005.
