Officials are planning to clear a second section of the large homeless encampment in Kakaako.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell announced Monday that the next phase of the camp clearing will happen Thursday.

Crews will enforce the sidewalk nuisance and stored property ordinances starting around 11 a.m. They plan to clear tents and belongings on Forrest Avenue and Keawe Street between Ilalao Street and Ala Moana Boulevard.

Caldwell says the remaining parts of the Kakaako encampment will be cleared in subsequent weeks.

The announcement follows last week’s clearing of two blocks on the outskirts of the encampment.
