Fed up, five businesses threaten to move out of Portland

A homeless camp in the central eastside of Portland.

The day before the City Council is expected to approve $27 million to help create six large sanctioned homeless camps, five local businesses told city and state leaders they are on the verge of moving out of Portland because of crime and homelessness.

The businesses are Salt & Straw, Stumptown, Olympia Provisions, Revant Optics and Smith Teamaker. All of them are located in the central eastside.
