DENVER (CBS4) – A young couple in Denver’s West City Park neighborhood have put their home up for sale saying problems with Denver’s homeless population are driving them out of the city.
“It makes us extremely uncomfortable and we don’t want to live here any longer,” said the woman, who asked not to be identified.
“Increasingly every day it’s the number one reason I want to sell is because of the homeless situation.”
Their complaint is part of a growing chorus of Denver residents saying homeless issues have encroached into neighborhoods that previously saw minimal impact from Denver’s homeless population. One Denver police officer who patrols Denver’s Capitol Hill corridor told CBS4 60 to 80 percent of his service calls are from residents dealing with homeless men and women causing problems. more
