I agree with Ryan Foisy's op-ed that appeared on the July 6 opinion page. We can't keep playing whack-a-mole with the homeless camps.

I believe there could be a legal place for the homeless to camp where there would be regular garbage service and basic amenities to be used to give other service organizations time to do their work. We should work to find a suitable location(s) and raise funds to purchase and improve it. This would require a concerted effort of many municipal departments and volunteers. I would gladly donate my time and money to such a cause.
