Old Town Homeless "Rest Area" Will Reluctantly Try for Permit


Let's all pitch in and pay the fine...then pressure City Hall for money to make the sewer connection they really need to stop more fines. Maybe Leonard could put a new mega-toilet there...duh!
The State of Oregon already provides rest stops on Oregon highways and freeways for travelers so why don't the State of Oregon provide rest stops for homeless people?
Are not homeless people travelers on foot?
Oregon already taxes the tax payers to support rest stops of which most people agree is needed for highways and freeways, well homeless people need to rest as well.
With all the property the city of Portland owns I don't see why this is even a problem, people need to rest whether they travel by car or by foot and rest stops are already established in Oregon and accepted.
