Cottage Grove Community Center camp closed

Local do-gooders volunteered to move tents, cookware and other items from the community center site to Trailhead Park. After months of living outside the community center in Cottage Grove, residents of the encampment were given 72 hours notice to move.

Due to the city council’s challenges in arriving at a decision about constructing a homeless shelter within the city limits, the people living at the community center temporary site were given a 72-hour notice to leave. 

Cottage Grove Chief of Police Scott Shepherd made the rounds Tuesday mid-morning . . .
