The Homeless--Remember Them?



It's getting cold. If we were truly interested in housing the homeless, microhousing still exists at a cost of $5,000 a unit. The Mayor and Council Prez Garcetti, however, are only interested in building "low cost affordable housing" at $300,000 a unit, assuring that the developers and contractors get most of the money earmarked for the neediest.

The LA Conservancy is only interested in preserving pricey hotels. It seems a great waste of effort to do so when we have 50,000 homeless in the County and ample space along the South LA river corridor, where homeless live anyway, unsheltered.
