The parking site for homeless people living in their RVs located in Vista Montana has taken nearby residents by surprise, a report said.

The parking is located about three miles from where people are being swept out of an encampment on Apple‘s North San Jose.

“Yes it was rushed, yes it was quick. We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to make this pilot work,” city council member David Cohen said.

Cohen also said that Apple had been pleading with the city for years to help find housing for the growing homeless encampment.

The situation arose this week when the company cleared out a site to relocate more than 60 inhabitants.

According to the report, Apple pledged millions of dollars to find them housing and motels in shelters. However, there were about eight or nine people with RVs and nowhere to park them.

The parking consists of 4.2 acres with space for up to 20 RVs. Across the street are two apartment buildings.

This sparked concerns among neighbors who claim that they were taken by surprise and that everything happened without public discussion.

“You’re bringing the homelessness over here. You’re inviting it to our area,” one of the residents said.

Cohen said that they are “forced into actually getting the city to test out how this could work that maybe wouldn’t have happened if we didn’t have this other site getting close down.”
