One of the areas along the Sacramento River shoreline most affected by transient camps has been on the river front property below Hemsted Drive, north of the Cypress Street Bridge. The property is owned by Shasta Enterprises. The City of Redding Code Enforcement Team has worked with Dave Cretaro, property manager for Shasta Enterprises, to facilitate a clean-up of the extensive transient camps, debris, and dump sites. Many of the camps and dump sites were easily viewed by people boating on the river. The Code Enforcement Team tagged numerous camps over the past month and issued numerous illegal camping citations at the location.
Shasta Enterprises hired a clean-up contractor, Easy Clean-Ups, to conduct the clean-up. They completed the first phase of the clean-up in early January 2015 and removed six tons of trash and debris. They conducted the second phase of the clean-up this week and removed three tons of trash and debris. The Code Enforcement Team will continue to patrol the property.
