We’ve 1000’s of empty buildings downtown and in different areas of the town, since folks can now work remotely. What’s taking so lengthy for the town to dealer a deal to show a few of these empty areas into welfare motels for the houseless? That method, when sweeps are accomplished, folks even have a spot to go. The areas might additionally present well being care, psychological well being care, clothes closets, heat meals and sources to get a job. As well as, flip extra buildings into low-income housing so that folks can keep away from changing into houseless. I need to have the ability to go on the bike paths and the Eastbank Esplanade once more. This metropolis was once fantastic and might be once more. Get shifting on this. Winter is coming.
