CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The City Council passed the Blucher park ordinance on Tuesday, a move designed to keep the homeless

out of the internationally known bird sanctuary.

People who work with the homeless gave their reactions.

Tony Reyes, head of Mission 911, says the new park rules apply to everyone, not just the homeless.

He believes many of the people who end up sleeping in places like Blucher Park do so because they don't want help, or have been banned from shelters.

CCPD will soon start posting signs around Blucher Park to let visitors know about the new rules.
