A homeless camp in Coeur d'Alene is being forced to move.
For years people with no place to go have camped on the private property, but now they have less than 24 hours to be off the land.
The camp is located behind Target, between Government Way and US-95.
The land owner is planning to develop the property and told the Coeur d'Alene police to assist in removing the temporary residents.
Stephen Marshall has been living in the homeless camp for years. He receives a disability check every month but says it's not enough to afford housing.
"I signed up for subsidized and discount housing and the�like, but there's a�two to�seven year waiting period," he says.
He adds the timing of the forced move couldn't be worse, with winter fast approaching.
"Well I don't have the health to setup another camp in November getting ready for the winter that's at hand. Not without a few strong guys who can work like I used to be able to," Marshall says.
Gar Mickelson with Kaleidoscope Community Services says most of the residents want a better life.
