Let Tent City 4 Put Down Stakes
- Issue: St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Bellevue has voted to host Tent City 4 for a standard full 90-day term. Temple B’nai Torah has also stated they wish to host Tent City 4 for this standard time period. In response, the City of Bellevue has allocated $250,000 of taxpayer money for use in legal fees to fight St. Luke’s, Temple B’nai Torah, and members of the Church Council of Greater Seattle who are in support of the full-term stay for violating the city’s maximum 60-day stay ordinance for homeless encampments.
