CHICO, Calif. - There are still over a dozen tents set up at the area known as the "Triangle” located between Pine and Cypress streets in Chico.
People staying in the area received a 72-hour notice from police on Thursday. Despite that, many are still choosing to stay.
Tuesday morning, a small group of protestors were out holding up signs that said, "housing yes, eviction no" and "Let em stay."
The demonstrators said that they are concerned about people losing their only shelter during these stormy conditions.
Robyn Engel, a resident of Chico, was among the group protesting Tuesday morning.
"We want sanctioned camping, we need shelters, low barrier, high barrier shelters," said Engel. "We need housing for all. That is a human right and that’s a big statement I want known, that housing is a human right."
Action News Now also spoke with council member Sean Morgan who said they do know that some of the homeless have gone into hotels and to the Torres Shelter.
He said they don't know however if people have relocated to other parts of town or have left.
Morgan said the homeless solutions coordinator will be bringing up different shelter ideas for the council to consider based on research.
This will likely be a topic discussed at the upcoming city council meeting.
Sargent Cesar Sandoval, with the Chico Police Department, said they will not be out enforcing the rules and regulations right now with the winter storm weather conditions that we are seeing.
He adds, they hope people will take advantage of the warming center that is currently open.
Due to the extremely cold conditions, the City of Chico activated a warming center located at Depot Park. The center was activated to remain open until 8 a.m. Wednesday morning.
City officials said they will continue to monitor the weather and will keep the center open if necessary.
