CHICO, Calif. - The City of Chico has identified three areas where homeless people can go for at least 60 days when the Torres Shelter or the Pallet shelter are not an option for that person, the city says. 

The city says people can go to a one-acre site on the northwest corner of Cohasset Road and Eaton Road, a one-acre site on the north side of Fair Street near County Drive, and a two-acre at the northwest corner of Bruce Road and Humboldt Road.

These camping areas are not a location for people who prefer to camp but have been accepted into a shelter. The city says these people must go to the Torres Shelter, the Pallet shelter or face enforcement. 

As part of the settlement agreement, the city can identify three locations where a homeless person can avoid enforcement for 60 days. The city says it also has the flexibility to change the list in the future per the terms of the settlement.
