Roswell city staff suggest code amendments affecting homeless

Jose Vega has been without a permanent place to live for about 10 years.

Since then, he has lived in motels, shelters and outdoors around Roswell, which is where he lives now.

He said during a brief interview Saturday that police know where he lives and that he tried to work with homeless shelter employees at various points in the past, but he said they told him they couldn’t find him a permanent home. He said he prefers living outdoors to staying in a shelter.

“They get information from you,” he said. “They know more about you.”

The city of Roswell is considering some changes to the city code that could affect Vega and other people staying or living in public spaces, if the amendments are approved by the Roswell City Council.
