A hearing on council member's Albus Brooks' bill is scheduled for Monday, April 30. It will be a chance for the public to voice their opinions directly to council members.
That will be first of two readings of the bill.
The bill would allow police to confront people camping on public or private land and arrest them if they don't have permission to be there or refuse to leave.
Opponents argue it would make being homeless a crime, since there aren't enough shelter beds. Homeless advocates want to amend the bill so that it can only be enforced if shelters have open space.
Brooks says people and businesses complain about all the people sleeping in public.
He also has concerns with sanitation, thanks in part to the Occupy Denver protests.
