If there is an "increase" in "homeless crimes" it's probably because there has been more enforcement with tickets. However, that doesn't correlate to a decrease in homelessness. Decreasing homelessness takes National, State and Local effort.

The City should continue to provide this service. A non-profit that represents renters or is pro-renter wouldn't be seen as neutral. The City provides various services to property owners. They can at least provide this service that benefits both landlords and renters.

In a way she's right. Cities are bearing the burden of failed State and National policies. There is no reason so many vets, seniors, mentally ill, physically disabled, women and children should be living homeless on our streets. We can do better. Let's look at data. Let's follow best practices. And let's demand that every City do this. Placing homeless people in some "Out of Town Center" is NOT an example of excepting "responsibility."

I think AZ2SB has some logical reasoning issues. No one said homelessness isn't a problem. But portraying all homeless people as criminals is also a problem. More homeless crimes than gang crimes? Let's think about the type of "crimes." Sleeping in public v. drug sales and knife fights. Being a member of a criminal street gang is a whole other subject and can be a crime in and of itself (California 186.22 "Participation in a criminal street gang").

Good job Supervisors! This is a victory for the renters who have been evicted with no relocation assistance. Many of these people had to move from Santa Barbara or became part of our homeless problem.

Nothing wrong with ensuring that those people who qualify for benefits get them. There are people going hungry in our County. If our County Departments want to do a better job --that's a good sign.
