For the first time this summer, there are no homeless people camping on the Greenfield Town Common. The common was closed at 8 this morning to allow Greenfield DPW crews to clean and reseed the grounds.
Greenfield Police said the homeless people left Thursday and they were cooperative with Friday’s deadline.
The city said they were able to get half of the campers temporary housing and they are assisting the others that did not.
“People were able to make some of their own arrangements. there were some folks who are staying with friends family and acquittances who are staying in the housing stock until those shelter beds become available,” said MJ Adams, Greenfield Community Development Director.
Greenfield Mayor Martin said they needed to close the common to get it ready for Sunday’s annual Harvest Supper. They’ll need the time to allow the grass to grow on the common.
