MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Organizations that support Railroad Park in Medford object to plans to use it to feed the homeless.

About 30 people from five organizations that have improved and maintained the park for decades met Tuesday with the Medford parks director to express their concerns.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1vxtJOW ) they fear that homeless people leaving waste or engaging in unlawful behavior would hurt the family-friendly environment and discourage visitors to the displays of railroad equipment.

A homeless feeding program is moving to Railroad Park because Hawthorne Park is closing for renovation.
