St. Joseph's Episcopal Church, at 1902 W. Main St., didn't have the proper permits for the encampment, and inspectors also planned to check the site for possible housing code violations, city spokeswoman Beverly Thompson said.
Inspectors began looking at the site after the Planning Department received a complaint about it, Thompson said.
The church could pitch its tents again if it submits an application for a special-use permit and a site plan for a homeless shelter and both are approved by city officials, she said.
