In the country away from home owners, farms, businesses. Unless this facility is strickly monitored there will be trash and drugs everywhere. Make a homeless city. With garbage. Water, shower and sewer services and let them go. Daily shuttle might be a good idea.

Yes, Ben Hargis: Away from residential areas churches, schools. NO ONE wants that in their back yard. I realize there needs to be managed camps for homeless people, and I hope some of the planned tiny-house-villages (away from established n'hoods) can provide for them on vast empty land in Redmond.

All in favor of helping. Fine line between helping and enabling. If you build it they will come

If the rent and housing situation would become more affordable for the people who work here, maybe then the people living in their cars or tents that have a job will be able to get back into a place of their own and off the street. As for the rest? Why keep giving them incentives?

I believe in a hand up, not a hand out. I believe permanent state/local government sponsored camp(s) enable bad decisions and bad behavior. Limited time for assistance motivates change. Everyone needs a hand up sometimes.

The more you do for the homeless the more homeless there are. The more homeless there are, the more they do. Do you you see a pattern? The vast percentage of the homeless population is a chosen lifestyle. If you cut off all services the homeless get there would little to no homeless.

Happy treason day! The day we celebrate past treasons dressed up as freedom. while condemning any thought of treason even if it be for the same reason!

It's hard to feel patriotic when a small percentage of people enforce laws on women, jeopardizing their lives. The "Supreme Court" is a joke. Now families will fall sick from polluted air and water without the safety net of regulations, jeopardizing our future for the profiteering of big companies.
