This doesn't solve the problem since homeless outreach workers will utilize the space as well. This means that the homeless drug addicts & mentally ill will also be hanging around in the substation. The way to solve the homeless problem & the drug addict problem is to stop giving them money.
It's not just the drug dealing, it's the homeless, drug addicts, pimps prostitutes as well. One doesn't know if the homeless are self-medicating because they're mentally ill or if they're mentally ill because they're drug addicts & the drugs fried their brains.
@Emelie Koshland: No, section 8 is different from low income housing (the projects). Section 8 is regulated by the federal government-Housing Urban Development (HUD). Section 8 is where a buyer obtains a loan so he/she can purchase the property via HUD at a lower interest rate than the market rate & in exchange the renters pay a much lower rent & HUD pays the difference ex. the rent is $800-you pay $400 & HUD pays $400. This agreement between the owner & HUD is for 20 years. On the 20th year, the the apartments rents revert to the market rate.
I checked into this a few months ago. When I spoke to a CleanPower representative I was informed that CleanPower will not have its own gas & electric pipelines. CleanPower will piggy back onto P.G.&E's gas & electric pipelines. If there's a power outage, you contact P.G.&E who then contacts CleanPower. People, why ruin a good thing? When you turn on your heating system, it works warming your house, when you flip a switch your lights are on. If it isn't broken why fix it?
Just brillant, the killings are occuring in the Bayview/Hunters Point districts & people there are more concerned about the civil rights of the killers. Then they wonder why employers won't locate in these districts to create jobs. When Willie Brown was mayor, Bayview/Hunters Point wanted to build a new football stadium & shopping center. However, DeBartolo was informed that no one would take public transportation or drive to the shopping center because the Bayvew/Hunters Point districts are too dangerous. Therefore, there would have to be a shuttle bus to take people from downtown & drop them off in the shopping center and pick them up to return them downtown. Needless to say, there isn't a new stadium & shopping center (the 2008 recession had nothing to do with this fact).
That all we need is more spoiled rotten brats riding the bus unsupervised.
@CH: You can't fix stupid.
