BID Shows Needle Hot Spots in their Coverage Area

(27 July 2019)Rick Swinger picked up a flyer the Business Improvement District (BID) office put out showing the needle hot spots in the areas they clean.

Flyer shows the number of needles found and counted from January to June of this year. Rose and 3rd Ave take the number one position. Lot 701 is where the Farmers’ Market is on Fridays.

    Mango go down to BID on Pacific near the dog park and get one yourself. By the way did you see this video I took on Main st with David working for BID. They invited me to their office to pick up this flyer. A great group of Guys! Did a great NBC’s “Streets of Shame” News cast too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUHWNbjob3I&t=4s

    Looks like a bogus flyer. Nothing on it identifies it from being from the BID.

    2019 7/29 1130AM 3rd and Rose Ave NO COMMEMT by LASHA about all those Rodent burrows the campers on 3rd are sleeping next to and on top of! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4FIZSOxX_8&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR2Ly-3aowmgSl4VPGV1OXUBF6bBoWhvvy5kmQ7CSfD4ax748NOEz1LtOS8

    We can thank the policy of the LAPD/Bonin with selective ticketing that has created 3rd as the place to camp even though it has the most rat burrows than any other camping area on the Westside. Also one of the most densely populated areas too boot! If the Bubonic Plague was to break out on the Westside these unsanitary conditions we have been documenting on 3rd would give a greater probability of this happening. That’s why I think we should make 3rd off limits to unregulated camping so residents in our neighborhood won’t be in harms way!
