Re: “Springs announces Homelessness Action Plan

Ugh. Paying to pick up after people that can't pick up after themselves? Just ugh.

Pack it in; pack it out.
Leave no trace.
Nobody needs 17 stripped bicycle frames in a pile.

This is horrid. And to some; acceptable. :/

Re: “Pikes Peak Litter Letter project draws attention to trash in local waterways

This is a joke. Take a walk along Shooks Run from E. Fountain to E. Las Vegas. Gaze upon a wasteland of trash and garbage, five gallons buckets of feces (where do they go when full? Into a regular trash bin? Do you think the trash compacter dumptruck is meant to process that stuff? Is the landfill rated for human waste disposal????), and ... and a huge 10 cubic yard dumpster SW of the High Tops Dispensary at 1022 S. Royer.

Giant dumpster. Unused.
Good luck with the utopian experiment. Soon winter will be here; the entire area will be a blaze with wild fire.

Well meaning charity; gone horribly awry.

Re: “Reader: More housing won't clear homeless camps

Take a trip down to 509 E. Vermijo. Yep. Gaze upon the 10 cubic yard dumpster; and teh various 'homeless' tents around it. Yep. The ground is covered in trash, trash, and more trash.
Even with a dumpster; these folks; oh good God dear Lord.
The visual tells the story.
509 E. Vermijo Ave. Google it; map it; drive on down and look around.

Feel free to explain why any of this is acceptable human behavior. Bonus points for why other people are supposed to 'get involved', or 'volunteer' to help.

Re: “Colorado Sports and Events Center stadium, arena to host Switchbacks, Colorado College hockey downtown

Did I miss the chance we were supposed to have to vote for or against stuff like this?

Re: “City rejects community vision for Leon Young Pavilion in Hillside neighborhood

Take a walk along the bike path; just head South. There used to be bunches of trees. Chopped down by the city due to the homeless littering the area. Cross the walk bridge over Shooks Run. See the open space to the N? Yep; full of trash via the homeless.

Continue under the bridge. You will emerge into a third world apocalypse of trash and debris; none of which was there just three years ago. Endless garbage.

Climb up; and follow the old tracks to the SE. Look upon trash, and trash, and more trash as you walk.

Turn back; and head towards downtown. See the open field? The homeless moved in; and within months; the trash became so deep; the only option was to raze what was formerly a small urban forest; full of trails and hiking paths. Kids used to run through them; bike around them; and neighbors would take walks.

It is all gone now.

It is not a 'homeless' people problem; it is what they do to the places they tent camp live at. They destroy our Nature.

It's all gone now.
