An excellent series of responses to the great article about the Parkway by Erika D. Smith in the Sacramento Bee, see at http://www.sacbee.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/erika-d-smith/article37252194.html and our letter is one of them.
It’s a tragedy for the parkway
This column nails it. It really is that bad down on the American River Parkway, and Erika Smith repeats what North Sacramento and Woodlake residents have been saying for years about their area of the parkway.
It really is all about the parkway and what’s happening to it. The tragedy of Sacramento homelessness has been overwhelmed by the tragedy of the impact of the homeless on the parkway.
We offer two strategies; absolute, enforced, zero tolerance for illegal camping, and creating a homeless transformation campus at Depot Park capable of handling the homeless population in Sacramento.
