Occupants of a large tent city on San Francisco's division street have been given eviction notices.

FOX's John Saucier reports:

The city citing human waste and drug paraphernalia in the area, they've now declared that tent city a public nuisance and have given those living there until Friday to get out:

(Gordon) "There have been so many tents that have been popping up that it really has become a health hazard, we believe, and really obstructing the path of travel for people. We've seen pedestrians walking out on the streets, wheel chairs haven't been able to get through."

That's San Francisco DPW spokeswoman Rachel Gordon.

The city is offering shelter opportunities, but some of the tent city occupants say they don't want to stay in shelters.
