UNIT helping to relocate homeless couple found living in tent on city property

Responding to a concern of a tent and possible homeless persons living on Danbury city property, the Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team visited the location. Initially, the person was not there, but he was located nearby.  UNIT said in a report to the City Council Tuesday that the man and his significant other are homeless, and learned they can often be found panhandling off of exit ramps and shopping plazas.  UNIT says they have been ticketed for those actions in the past.  Director Shawn Stillman has been working to get them housed in Super 8, which has been acting as the City's homeless shelter since the pandemic hit in March. In the meantime, the couple was advised to clean the area where they are living, and they did, but will be expected to leave the property soon.
