How do you guys deal with homeless?

I live at 1989 main, at the cgx right there, and I don't want to call any police or shit on them. There is a massive homeless camp.

But it's becoming an issue. They vomit and urinate in the sidewalk, and the trash is gross because crossroads has no trash cans. They throw it onto our property or into the street. Everyone smokes there, and more.

I know cgx has a massive loss from people just taking shit but it doesn't seem like they want to hire a guard.

Any suggestions that are not mean?

Article on the new street pick devices meant to help stop sideshows and street racing. Not quite sure how much they will help, but at least something is trying to be done. Y’all may notice one of the residents interviewed as well :lol:

As someone who rides a motorcycle, I don't like the look of those things, especially if they are wet.

You stop it with that common sense.

Realistically though, you don’t want to be putting in hard infrastructure like that, that’ll require concrete pours, while it’s going into winter. Id imagine they’re pursuing something along those lines for the future though

If done right, medians can add a lot of value to the neighborhood experience. Add some trees and greenery.

I live on a blvd with medians. They still do their thing at the intersections where there is no median.
