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?

Don't cover up the problem, find ways to help those that want help and for those that don't discurage camping in town.

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.

The drive thru at Walgreens on 20 was closed and the wait inside was 40 minutes. 40 minutes with sick sick people that couldn't access drive thru and no one to answer the phone for curbside.

The Safeway on Century has AWFUL long lines just waiting in store to pick up prescriptions. I have waited in a 45-minute line in the last couple of months and it has been like this for quite a while. Because of this, I have switched all of my prescriptions to the Westside Pharmacy across the street.

No, I haven't.

I go to a Pharmacy that is excellent. Many windows and apparently fully staffed. I am very happy with them. Unfortunately I will not disclose my Pharmacy location for obvious reasons, I don't want it to end up like the train wreck called "Walgreens" in Redmond. Why anyone still goes to Walgreens in.
