Of course it's down when the City removes funding from shelters and resources.Read More "Transferring" budget to prevention programs doesn't solve the main causes of homelessness in SD County (& elsewhere): 1) a 9-12 year waiting list for affordable housing [eliminating developers' requirements to BUILD more affordable housing certainly doesn't help] ; 2) no prevailing wage jobs ("working poor;" it's delusional to think folks can live in SD County on $8/hr.), and 3) mental illness. Closing soup kitchens and shelters just eliminates an initial point of contact to get them help.

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

Thanks again T I L. Robbie, major legal battles have occurred following several earthquakesRead More concerning the explosions that ensue because gas lines burst. Then the house burns down. Then the owner submits an insurance claim on his fire policy. Insurer won't pay because the owner did not have earthquake coverage. The sun zone of American really needs to be solarized.

Then this group can buy it for its true value .... we can't keep taking property off the tax rolesRead More without adding unused property back ... we now have a 44 acre park .. a new fire station, a municipal office and yard on prime frontage property ... Pacific View should be demolished and subdivided into about 20 single family lots and sold off to individuals .. it will bring in a lot of property tax this city needs ... not to mention the money the school district will get from the sale
Lynn Marr March 16, 2014 at 07:54 pm
Jay, you're mistaken on this. Pacific View would have a significant lease revenue stream, should itRead More be leased to a non-profit foundation to rehab and maintain the existing classrooms for a true community arts and learning center. The bottom line is not always money. Dollars are not always the highest value.
Jay Berman March 17, 2014 at 09:12 am
We just don't agree ... you sell 20 lots at $1m ++ each then the improvements / houses built wouldRead More probably make those houses worth over $2m each ... that's significant property tax revenue. The city needs money to pay for all the excessive spending its been doing besides all the deferred maintenance and paying way too much for each of these projects .. I think government should own only the real estate that is needed and sell off surplus. Government shouldn't be a landlord either ...
