Portland developers sue to evict Right 2 Dream Too camp

PORTLAND, Ore. — Two Portland development companies have filed a lawsuit in order to evict a homeless tent camp across the street from a hotel they are renovating.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that developers of the Grove Hotel filed a lawsuit arguing the homeless camp violates Portland's zoning codes and permitting rules and that it impedes redevelopment in the neighborhood.

The developers argue the camp, known as Right 2 Dream Too, interferes with the renovation at the hotel by reducing neighborhood property values.

The Portland City Council voted in February 2016 to move the camp a different neighborhood, but a ruling by Oregon's land-use board blocked the move.
