The Overlook Neighborhood Association speaks about their lawsuit against PDX and Mayor Hales

A coalition of business owners, local residents, and neighborhood associations filed a lawsuit yesterday against the city of Portland and Mayor Charlie Hales.

The coalition hopes that the lawsuit will force the city to address the houseless crisis beyond just allowing people to camp on the sidewalk.

Instead, the coalition would like to see a more permanent and legal solution that actively addresses the needs of the houseless community.

KBOO reporter Jenna Yokoyama spoke with Chris Trejbal, board member of the Overlook Neighborhood Association, about their lawsuit.
