    N Poinsettia Pl Encampment Gets Major Clean Up

    N Poinsettia Pl encampment, at the Los Angeles side of Poinsettia Park, near the West Hollywood city limits, received a 15-hour clean up on Tuesday and according to @cleanuppoinsettia on Instagram the housed individuals at the encampment have received housing and services and have been removed from the sidewalks.

    “A Neighborhood is Very Grateful,” reads the post. Thank you @cityoflosangeles @mayorofla and especially @lacitysan Happy to share that an overwhelming number of Poinsettia Encampment residents received housing and services…This is a long time coming and the Residents are very pleased. 🖤”

    According to the post, there was a massive cleaning that lasted 15 hours and No Trespassing, No Parking, and No Dumping sign has gone up throughout the neighborhood. Photos also show that the fences have gone up on the sidewalks to prevent future encampments.

    The cleanup happened three days after a tree was lit on fire on the street. “Another fire 🔥 at the Poinsettia Encampment… This tree has already been lit on fire once and now it is still smoldering from another fire last night. @lapdwilshirestation @lapdhq WHAT IS BEING DONE?! @mayorofla This is directly in front of @lacitydpw This is Insane! The @cityoflosangeles does Nothing here.”

    A former resident who brought a lot of media attention to the encampments in that area, tells WEHO TIMES that major cleanings happened on a regularly basis, and for a period of time as often as once a week. However, the encampment has grown in the past years and the cleaning seems to be done randomly and less frequently. The person has since moved out of that area partly because of the homeless problem on his street.

    An Instagram account @cleanuppoinsettia began documenting the conditions at N Poinsettia Pl, “to try and get the city of LA to do something about the Poinsettia Park Encampment. It is Dangerous & UnSafe.” The page has posted several videos showing screaming street fights, individuals urinating and defecating in private residences, an individual smoking out of glass pipes, syringes on the street near the park where children play and one video shows people standing around an open bonfire on the street.

    No no! Leave the encampments alone they are not hurting anyone just leave them alone that’s their house! Don’t make the neighborhood colorful with their tents and their homemade fences and everything add Art to the neighborhood with their artistic homes! Just leave them be!

    I hope the people staying there were given permanent housing options. Mayor Bass’s colossal failure Inside Safe barely permanently housed only a few hundred people. It would be nice if WehoTomes follows up on the outcomes of the people previously staying in this encampment.

    Have you worked directly with the ‘unhomed’. If you have you would know that permanent housing is rarely requested. Resources abound in LA county….and resources are refused daily. Transportation is requested the most…. to where they want to go….and it isn’t a facility set up for them. Sorry for the reality check.

    It should never have been allowed to get that bad in the first place.

    Thank GOD. That block was truly a hell hole for the past few months.

    They need to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I’ve seen encampments there on and off since at least 2018
