I was very impressed with a letter received from Barbara Geisman, the Executive Director of Development for the City of St. Louis a few weeks ago.
It all started when I got a ticket while parked in a 15 minute only spot by the Knickerbocker. I sent a smart ass email to the mayor and added that it would be better for the city to clean up the vagrancy in Lucas Park than to continue to collect $10 bills from little ole me.
She brought up that there is a concentration of facilities serving the homeless in the downtown area and that efforts to "encourage the development of such facilities (elsewhere in the region) would be much appreciated.
Where should these facilities go, and how do we go about allowing them to move elsewhere is a subject that I am interested in. Are there any facilities serving the homeless in St. Louis County, Metro East, or St. Charles?
