Re: “Arkley Volunteers Balloon Track for Possible Homeless Camp. Seriously.

“Step up and do something, and stop complaining.” (ECD Director Rob Holmlund).

Spoken like a seasoned bureaucrat...as if government will take corrective action without public complaints! No one complains more than city officials after those "damn concerned citizens" actually start to step up.

This city is choosing to only listen to a narrow range of possible actions.

Nearby Utah already reduced homelessness 78% by providing dignified, modest apartments to the homeless at a public cost savings from ending the "sweeps" that admitted too many homeless into the endless downward spiral of costly mental health, courtroom, probation, and jail facilities.

If our city and county governments were not dominated by right-wing ideologues, one of the many abandoned buildings or unsafe flop houses would have been legally seized by Eminent Domain long ago and repaired for decent, modest housing...the ONLY honest solution.

A commenter on another blog had a suggestion for the site: the empty Jacobs Junior High as the infrastructure is already in place and the building sits empty.

Once Mr. Arkley removes the toxic material his offer would be wonderful. As it is, his motives seem a bit suspect.

Re: “Arkley Volunteers Balloon Track for Possible Homeless Camp. Seriously.

Last year Arkley filled the Warfinger Building with his chorus of business owners screeching against "public subsidies attracting more homelessness."

Slow to the punch, Arkley suddenly realized he could get public subsidies to clean up his Balloon Tract if the city approves it for the homeless camp...no longer concerned that it will attract more homeless with "free camping", according to right-wing mythology.

Yes, these are the crony-capitalist right-wing pinheads accustomed to doing whatever is expedient to maintain their control over local politics, economics, and public subsidies flowing to them.

John Fullerton loves whining so much against the destitute homeless in Eureka, (25% U.S. veterans, 50% women and children), that he hasn't done one damn thing to initiate his well-publicized plan to raise the minimum wage.

Re: “Arkley Volunteers Balloon Track for Possible Homeless Camp. Seriously.

The cited "three contributing factors" is basically bullshit. Much more plausible: the closing of state mental hospitals by the darling of the right, Ronald Reagan; the destruction of the economy; and the growing discrepancy between income and cost of living. All that aside, the important thing is that Chief Mills is moving forward with plans to hopefully alleviate (at least somewhat) the problem.

Re: “Arkley Volunteers Balloon Track for Possible Homeless Camp. Seriously.

This will not be tempoary. The homeless here need to shape up or die off. Why should the many be afraid of the few in our democratic republic? It is NOT okay to be homeless and it is NOT okay that they are allowed to terrorize the populace.

Re: “Arkley Volunteers Balloon Track for Possible Homeless Camp. Seriously.

Don't be fooled by false promises. No way does this become a "temporary 90 day campground" it will be permanent.

We also are not talking about a few dozen people but hundreds, maybe many hundreds. According to the homeless study there are 600 homeless in Eureka alone and 1,500 in Humboldt county. How many of the homeless in the county will be drawn to a free campground in Eureka?

Remember the South Jetty, the assaults, the robberies and the rapes? This will cost Eureka a hundred thousand dollars a year or more for round the clock supervision and police protection, clean up and sewer services. It will also not solve the problem. A third of the homeless surveyed by the EPD said they would refuse the campground because they don't want to live by the rules.

One more thing, this isn't a prison campground. The hundreds of homeless, including all the new ones, will be free to add to all the homeless wandering around Old Town/Downtown during the day. Tourists are already bypassing Eureka due to our reputation and this will only increase it. Just a couple days ago the city had a media article about water front development. Forget about it, the tourists will be driven away.

Great, let's set up homeless camps on lead, pentachlorophenols, futons, other dioxins, and other cancer causing chemicals. Kill two birds with one stone (pun intended).
