HONOLULU (AP) - Those who are trying to turn a Honolulu park into a monument to Korean culture say the effort is being thwarted by homeless campers.

Pawaa In-Ha Park Committee leader So Suk Ho tells the Honolulu Star-Advertiser homeless campers are urinating and defecating on the monuments. She says they’re also hanging clothes to dry on them.

She says she doesn’t want to force the homeless away but hopes they will show more respect and keep the monuments clean.

Some homeless at the park say they don’t have any choice but to live there.

The newspaper (https://ow.ly/ven16 ) reported Monday that Mayor Kirk Caldwell said the number of homeless at the park has dropped since the city started conducting sidewalk enforcement actions meant to keep sidewalks clear of personal property.
