These affordable rental units will have a positive impact on the community. The property will be improved and well maintained by the Housing Authority. ("Why Affordable Housing Does Not Lower Property Values" at http://www.habitat.org/how/propertyva...). These units will also help numerous individuals.This type of affordable housing is critical to vulnerable people who are disabled (physically or mentally) and the elderly. And I DO feel good about helping disabled and elderly people off the streets and in to housing. Permanent Supportive Housing is an evidence-based practice. This determination includes resident stability, evidence of greater impacts over alternatives and evidence of cost benefits. For more information about Permanent Supportive Housing and evidence-based and promising practices, visithttp://www.samhsa.gov

Lack of housing (density) also equals more cars on the road --in the form of commuters from Ventura and Lompoc. An insufficient number housing units brings all sorts of other problems too. It is clear that housing can be designed that is attractive and helps meets our communities needs.

Democrats may "hold a 12-point voter registration advantage over Republicans in the new district" but with friends like Pedro Nava I'm still worried!

You only have to walk down State Street in the early morning to see the mental health system is failing. People who can't take care of themselves live on our streets. Don't direct your anger at people who are homeless. Direct it at the people who make the decisions.

You all realize nonprofits are suffering too? This program would cost $202,200 for the County to restore. The Board of Supervisors can do this if they want to.

You don't have to take what the GJ has to say "with a grain of salt." I think you will find it very accurate. Although I agree that they don't say anything new. The full report: http://www.sbcgj.org/2011/HomelessMen... Investing in reducing recidivism is the cost effective way to get the result most of us want (fewer mentally ill homeless people on our street).

The worst part is some of these basic health and human services are the duty of the County. The County gives money to these non-profits b/c they can "do it more cost effectively." And then they cut the funding. Leaving the community stuck. Yes people should step up and support the non-profits. But be aware of how we got here.

@tricynical it is not illegal to do most of the things you don't like. The Supreme Court has already ruled on this. BTW the homeless people in Ventura are down by the waterfront. Moving the problem is hardly solving the problem.
