Homelessness in downtown Las Vegas has reached a crisis level. City officials are urging those on the streets to accept city and nonprofit services. In particular, officials want homeless people to take shelter. Businesses are also opposed to loitering and public indecency outside establishments. A new plan would make it illegal to camp or sleep downtown and elsewhere in public if beds are open. The city says the proposed ordinance would keep homeless and the public safe. But opponents argue shelters are often full and the plan criminalizes homeless. A city council hearing is scheduled Nov. 6. The public is invited to attend.
