SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — San Jose officials seeking to contain a sprawling homeless encampment have warned about 10 people living in tents nearby that they have to move out this week.

San Jose Homelessness Response Manager Ray Bramson said Monday the larger adjacent encampment, nicknamed The Jungle, is not being cleaned out at this point, although the city eventually plans to do so.

Bramson says in an effort to reduce crime at The Jungle, however, the city is adding a gate and boulders to block street traffic from entering a dirt parking lot at the top of the encampment. Church groups and others who pass out food and clothes will have to coordinate with the city to gain access.
