Fair and Equitable Solutions for the Homeless started this petition to Orange County Board of Supervisors

Library of the Canyons is not a viable solution to the County's homeless population for a number of reasons, some of which are below:

  • Remote location with no public transportation;
  • No available services;
  • High-risk fire area;
  • Prohibitive evacuation route;
  • Inadequate waste disposal being on septic system;
  • Recently renovated public library costing tax-payers 3.6 million dollars;
  • On-site Children's Library;
  • Preschool adjacent to location servicing over 40 children.

Our recommendation is to study the homeless population recently removed from the Santa Ana river bed to assess percentages of services/beds required and have each of the 34 cities and unincorporated areas provide their fair share of the number of necessary beds based on a percentage of per capita residents in their jurisdictions.
