Another section of Charleston’s Tent City cleared

Jody Teninty had been living in a tent at Meeting and Lee streets moved out Monday. Tent City will be dismantled over the next two months. Elected officials and homeless advocates have been scrambling to find places to relocate the rest of the campers.

Another section of Charleston’s so-called Tent City was cleared Tuesday.

Campers who had been living in several tents at Meeting and Lee streets moved out Monday after a notice from the city, and the big white tent that was serving them was taken down.

The campers were notified in advance that the site had to be cleared by Tuesday morning. Some moved their tents elsewhere while others found a bed at One80 Place, the city’s homeless shelter.

Another small section of the encampment by the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge was cleaned up Friday.

The campsite near the bridge and Interstate 26 is owned by the state Department of Transportation. The encampment will be dismantled over the next two months. Elected officials and homeless advocates have been scrambling to find places to relocate the rest of the campers.
