Camp Out Continues

Campers making Shirley Creek Marina their permanent home won't have to move right away. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continues to extend the time they can stay on the campsites.

The latest 120 day extension won't end until mid-October. The extension will likely continue until Chapter 11 proceedings filed by Shirley Creek's owner are complete. Until then no decision about grandfathering current residents from new enforcement procedures will be made.

Earlier this year, campers were told they could no longer stay at the corps sites year round, even though they've been doing that for years.
