Chris Willard started this petition to Citizens of Walnut Creek

As you may have noticed, there have been many homeless people attempting (often successfully) to camp out in Heather Farm Park, which is right next to where many of us live here in town.  My mother in law visiting for the holidays witnessed a man with all his overnight belongings spread over a table right next to the kids playground.  I have witnessed several men drinking, sleeping under a park bridge, and with an enormous cart of camping paraphernalia in the wildlife refuge.

We do not want our parks to become like Oakland, or maybe we do.  I’m starting this petition because it is not safe to walk kids, have your wife walk kids, or walk at night in the park which is supposed to be ours to enjoy as taxpayers and citizens.  If this is not stopped early, it will turn into a major problem affecting the desirability and environment of our community.  There is a clear safety risk to having the homeless occupying our parks.

I’ve called the police, and they say it is not their responsibility unless they are breaking a law right then and there.  I want to get this petition full of signatures and then send it to the city council.  Remember- we can support the homeless in programs and shelters intended to help them rehabilitate and not in our public parks intended for all to safely enjoy.

Sincerely,

Chris Willard
