As the issue of homelessness in New Brunswick continues to grow, another tent camp has cropped up and is causing concerns for people in part of Moncton's downtown.

"There can be needles, there can be other issues," says Danielle Jimenez, who lives in the area.

"We've seen fights. We've seen lots of other things."

The tent camp at the corner of High and Park streets in the downtown area is seconds away from the Harvest House shelter, although many people who don't have a home have said they refuse to access shelters for a variety of reasons, including theft, anxiety and certain rules or restrictions.

"It is taking more time than originally anticipated, but this location is on top of our priority list."

Jimenez walks her kids to school each day but is frustrated with the disturbances, which she says are the result of people tenting down the road.

Trevor Goodwin, the senior director of outreach for YMCA of Greater Moncton, says they've been visiting the site with by-law officers, telling tenants they need to move along.

But he says it's a unique scenario with it being provincial land.

"Typically it's either private property or city property," he says.

"It really was just a question of legality and contacting property owners, the appropriate owners, and making sure that permission to go on-site is sent out and gone through the proper chain of command and RCMP is notified, by-law is notified."
