Cleaning up and securing "Dead Man's Forest" on 18th in Junction City Oregon

For years now the land that occupies West 18th Avenue in Junction City Oregon (known to locals as "Dead Man's Forest") has become a haven for transients. The property is owned by Eagle Veneer Inc (220 W 16th Ave, Junction City, OR 97448) which is owned by Mike and Denise Pratt. It has long been known that several dozen people (or more??) live year round on the property. The property has no utilities and hence creates unsanitary conditions. Residents have reported that the area is a haven for criminals and hard drug users. Local children have been reported to go into the forest to consume alcohol and drugs with the population that resides there. Criminal activity plagues the town in the form of thefts, car break in's and vandalism all of which has been attributed to in large part the residents of the woods. The area poses not only a quality of life issue but a hazard to the community of Junction City as fires have been previously set due to the illegal activities in the woods.
The issues in this area are not new, this is a long standing and ongoing issue in the community. Junction City Police do not have jurisdiction to deal with the property and Lane County Sheriff's are often too predisposed to deal with calls regarding the issue. As community we are calling on the owners of Eagle Veneer to do whatever is necessary to remove trespassers , clean up the garbage and biohazard waste and secure and protect the area from future issues.
Denise Pratt champions tirelessly for the children of Junction City through her school board position we call upon her now to champion tirelessly for not only the children but for us all as residents as Junction City Oregon and to help maintain a happy , healthy and safe place for us all.
