Re: “Eureka's Temporary Homeless Sleeping Areas Here to Stay

At least the city is trying some things, and the things it's trying are based on some evidence, not just opinions.

It's not that helpful to constantly criticize other people's efforts and not offer any constructive suggestions or ideas or even help out. Got a better idea? Pitch in with it. Problems are rarely solved by punitive and judgmental attitudes.

I agree that it would be helpful to see an accounting for what was spent and by whom.

I'd like to see some way to make it easier for homeowners to add units, like MIL or extra bedrooms, to existing houses. I'd like to see support for developers who want to build infill housing, near the bus lines, services, stores, schools.

The poor will always be with us. Obnoxious people are just as frequently rich as they are poor, the poor don't have a monopoly on being irresponsible, disgusting, whatever negative human characteristic you can think of. They just have less ability to cover it up or hide it or pay people off or move to another town.
