BAYSIDE — Eureka Police Chief Garr Nielsen called on the local community to do more to help the county’s homeless population and said he would welcome the formation of a designated homeless camp sight at a meeting of the Humboldt Human Rights Commission Saturday.

”My preference would be for the city and the community to designate a specific area that we recognize as OK (for homeless camping),” Nielsen told the dozen or so people in attendance, adding that the site would have to be complete with trash cans and bathrooms. “I think it would be much safer, much more sanitary and much easier to deal with.”
