PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - City officials are discussing how they can turn a homeless camp in north Portland into an organized operation.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/7krjuv ) Mayor Charlie Hales spokeswoman said Monday that the mayor’s office has been talking to the Oregon Department of Transportation, which owns much of the land where the campers reside, about delaying plans to evict the homeless residents.

The state agency issued eviction notices to campers at the site next to the Greeley Forest Garden, giving them until Oct. 3 to leave.

Transportation spokesman Don Hamilton confirmed the agency was working with the mayor to determine what will happen next. To move plans forward, the city must first determine who owns what property on the site.

More talks between state and city officials are scheduled for this week.
