Community Meeting for Residents Around 3rd Ave, 26 February

Hampton

By Rick Swinger

Community meeting of residents around 3rd Ave in Venice will take place Monday, 26 February, starting at 5 pm, at St. Joseph’s Center, 204 Hampton Drive.

Swinger and members of his area have been listing questions to ask at the meeting.

1. What is their public statement on the dumping of perishables on 3rd and boardwalk?
2. Why were their feces and trash not clean up in a timely manner in front of their building?
3. What happen to their security and cleanup crews promised in the allies around Hampton dr near their facility.
4. Why are some of the homeless saying your caseworkers are telling them to camp close while their paperwork is done.
5. Where are all these hotel vouchers I’ve been hearing about and why don’t these folks get them?
6. Where is your C3 team and why did they run away from me when asked about Hepatitis A vaccinations on 3rd?
7. Since we know RN’s can’t diagnosis diseases during the MRSA and Hepatitis A warnings why weren’t doctors sent in to examine the homeless on 3rd?
8. Why are the trash cans on 3rd not rat proof when the LA County Animal control has been picking up dead Norway Rats here?
9. Why were you not out spoken when Occupy Venice had their Sunday homeless feedings on 3rd without washing stations and a commercial kitchen set up?
10. What is your view on 3rd st camp being off limits to camping because of the on going uncontrolled pollution coming from Public Storage?
11. Are you aware of the homeless feces infested cesspool with out warning signs next to a playground at Rose Beach storm Drain exit?
12. Are you aware the owners of homes on Flower had to pay for trees and cactuses to be planted on their sidewalks because your Lincoln facility was allowing the homeless to camp in front of their homes 24/7? Did you help pay for that or would you?
13. Would you support the neighbors on Hampton to do the same thing and plant cactuses on their sidewalks and would you pay for that?
14. How are they spending the money that the City provides them for ‘services.’

Marie Hammond, long-time resident and one who worked on conditions for St. Joseph Center, said “It would be interesting to see if the parents of the preschool students will defend St. Jo’s for allowing filthy streets and their homeless clients to camp on their sidewalk near the preschool.

Another long-time resident and one who worked on conditions for St. Joseph Center, Barbara Gibson asked: “Don’t you think their Case Mangers should be on the street at 6:30 am getting the people up and guided to get help and trained for jobs??? Our money is enabling SJC and the transients to do nothing. The people need to learn discipline; they already know how to take care of themselves on the street. They need to be taught how to pack up their belongings neatly. Clean up their space.”

“Maybe the shoes are on the other foot for this one,” said Swinger. “Employees and parents can track all the bacteria from the street onto the preschool floor where little ones place little hands….and then into their mouths.”

Who is suppose to clean up what is in front of a residence on Hampton as shown below? There is a designated time for both cleanup and dumping on 3rd.
