City, County confirm plan to move homeless into Spokane Arena

SPOKANE, Wash - As part of its response to COVID-19 and in an effort to form a regional approach to the homeless crisis, the City of Spokane, Spokane County and the Spokane Health District announced plans Thursday to move homeless shelter beds into the Spokane Arena.

She said she called everyone she could think of to come clear it out. But because the camp was within Spokane Valley city limits and Spokane Valley has no shelters, the city can't move them.
