Although the vote passed for Prop L Sit/Lie, it was against the homeless population. There were many business owners and residents that were for and against the proposition. However, even those that were looking for solutions to deal with problems associated with homeless residents did not always vote for Prop L.
Currently, as an area with one of the highest homeless populations, Haight Ashbury residents have told me that they are extremely upset that other neighborhoods voted on the issue at all. There was also a similar opinion expressed online. Neighbors of the Haight Ashbury told me that if they were to influence the dollars spent on homelessness in the Haight, they would use more compassionate tactics and routes than those currently used or implied.
Residents also feel that they understand homelessness more because they actually have experiences with homeless residents in the neighborhood. They do not feel that other neighborhoods have a high population of homelessness and accurate ideas about what is best for homeless people.
In the meantime, the Board of Supervisors is still listening to citizens on issues concerning the Prop L Sit/Lie vote.
