Direct Walla Walla City Council to remove current Homeless Camp within 30 days
This petition had 712 supporters
The Walla Walla City Council is refusing to consider citizen, neighbor and business owners concerns about the location of the current city-sponsored homeless camp.
We, the undersigned registered voters of the City of Walla Walla, petition the Walla Walla City Council to order that the present homeless camp, located below the golf course be disassembled and completely removed from the area within 30 days of this petition being delivered.
Homeless people belong in homes, rehab facilities, mental health facilities or other places where they can get the help they need. Not only does the current camp not help them transition them to more appropriate housing, this situation has already proven to be a devastation to the local residences and businesses; with vandelism, theft, loitering, trespassing, trash including hypodermic needles. In the immediate vicinity of the camp is many family orientated places that much of this community enjoy, including the golf course, track, baseball stadium and most importantly the new public swimming pool. We as citizens of this town have a right to use these recreation sites safely and not in fear.
Furthermore We, the undersigned registered voters of the City of Walla Walla, petition the Walla Walla City Council to not make a desicion on where a new camp may be newly erected until the fact of having such a camp in our city is voted on by the the registered voters of this city. As voters, taxpayers and residents, we deserve an opportunity to be heard on any subject critical to the future of our community. We deserve representatives with the courage to listen to the people they were elected to represent.
