Residents of the /*tent city*/, which is about one mile northeast of the state capitol, are being told they have be out by Wednesday.
The /*Sacramento Municipal Utility District*/ owns the land and the district wants to build a fence around the property so it can use the space.
Homeless people have long used the land that stretches between the /*American River*/ and a set of railroad tracks. The camp is close to a food bank where those in need can pick up donated items.
Sacramento city officials say the tent city residents are being given alternatives for housing, including a 50 bed shelter at the state fairgrounds.
An estimated 150 people have been staying in the tent city.
