There's opposition to a plan by Portland city councilors to close the city's overflow shelter for the homeless. Mark Swann, executive director of Preble Street, is a leader of the effort.
"We think the city has made a bad decision," Swann said, "and they've made it prematurely without all the facts and they've made it without planning."
The overflow shelter has 75 beds. Swann says those beds have been filled every night. He says without the shelter, more homeless will sleep on streets, in doorways, and at other outdoor locations.
