Tisha Casto and Charles Parfait sit in the Chevrolet G20 van they’ve called home since moving to Colorado Springs in 2015. For the last two years, they’ve been able to park the van along Conejos Street next to America the Beautiful Park, a space Casto calls “the last safe haven for anybody to camp at.” But new signs going up Wednesday that read “No parking” between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. mean the couple will have to move. “I honestly don’t know where we’ll go,” Casto said.
