Portland neighborhood feels forgotten in homeless cleanup

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Cleanup of homeless camps continues around the city of Portland.

One neighborhood is upset, saying they are being forgotten.

Lents Neighbors for Justice held a rally Saturday to bring attention to camps near their homes.

Neighbors say they have seen drug deals happen and prostitution in the area.

They say they find needles and trash, and some people are afraid to walk around.

Jennifer Young says their neighborhood has been ignored, and it is disconcerting that there is only one point of contact with the city.

Neighbors say they have reached out to the city 150 times.
