On Wednesday morning, the Manitou Springs Police Department assisted the El Paso County Sherriff’s Office in coordinating a homeless camp locate in the surrounding unincorporated areas of Manitou Springs.

Per Ord. 1178 § 1, 1978, Ord. 1178 § 2, 1978, and Ord. 1178 § 3, 1978, it is illegal to camp in public places, remain parked in a City Park after the park is closed, and trespass on private property for the purpose of camping.

Three camps were located, two of them being occupied. Notices, stating the appropriate violation, were left to give notice that the occupants must vacate. The Sherriff’s Office and the Police Department will revisit these camps in the near future to clean up the remaining debris that will inevitably be left behind. If the occupants have not vacated, they will be cited for trespassing and given an opportunity to leave.
