WILMINGTON -- Wilmington City leaders call it a short-term solution to a =
long-term problem. They approved a proposal Tuesday that bans feeding =
homeless people in the downtown area.=20

City leaders say it's not about not helping the homeless. With this =
resolution passing they're hoping to work more closely with agencies =
that help feed the homeless. Part of this resolution is to bring those =
agencies and city departments closer together. In developing this idea =
staff members talked to six community groups that currently do help the =
homeless.=20

Leaders are developing what they call a 10-year plan to end =
homelessness. Council members said they aren't trying to punish homeless =
people, but instead, making sure they are getting the best help they can =
get.=20

"If we do ours here and it's not done in another community, it's just =
going to shift the homeless population. As we move forward with our =
plan, we think there's a way to do it, but it's going to take a total =
cooperative effort," Mayor Spence Broadhurst said.

The area that's affected is from Water to Third Street and Ann to Grace =
Street. No feeding can be done on streets or sidewalks.=20

The City wants to work with the groups that feed homeless to have =
specific areas where they can give out food; that's part of the city's =
10-year plan to end homelessness.=20

Right now estimates put the number of homeless in New Hanover County at =
about 600. That's more than either Pender or Brunswick Counties.=20

The City of Wilmington would like to start broadcasting public service =
announcements to educate residents about the homeless situation. =20
