Though advocates say applying hotels as transition housing allows homeless people today uncover very long-term destinations to dwell, Bangor town officials say they do not favor working with this alternative as a way to assist lower the city’s expanding homeless population.

That is why the metropolis does not object to the Ramada Inn on Odlin Street reverting to getting a ordinary lodge all over again in September, when federal pandemic funding to home homeless men and women there runs out. The lodge has been applied exclusively as a homeless shelter because past fall to help protect residents from becoming uncovered to COVID-19.

Dan Tremble, chairman of Bangor Town Council, reported that regardless of Bangor’s growing homeless inhabitants, he doesn’t believe applying accommodations as homeless shelters is “the way to go” in Bangor.
