CURRENT SITUATION

RENO’S INCREASING HOMELESS POPULATION AND ITS RELATED PROBLEMS ARE NEGATIVELY IMPACTING:

• Tourism
• Efforts to attract new businesses
• Crime rate
• Quality of Life
• Our debt-ridden city finances
• Availability of public safety services to the rest of the community

QUESTION:

Why is the City Council following and funding a homeless plan that has NEVER worked in ANY city where it has been tried? It is the exact same plan that has ruined Los Angeles, Seattle, and many other communities.

QOL-RENO’S 4-STEP SOLUTION FOR SOLVING RENO’S HOMELESS PROBLEMS .. ALMOST OVERNIGHT!

1)  Eliminate HUD funding and oversight of Reno’s Homeless Shelter,  so clients can be required to: be clean/sober, employed, seek mental health counseling (when needed), contribute to the cost of sheltering them, and obey the law.
 
2) Allow the Reno Police Department to fully and fairly enforce the city Municipal Code, including illegal camping

3) Eliminate special “Homeless Courts” where they receive little or no consequences for the crimes they commit

4) Implement the QOL-Reno Homeless Plan (HERE)

This very informative 2019 KOMO News video is worth watching. It presents a picture of the homeless issue that you may not have seen before.

Although most people living in U.S.cities, small and large, have encountered homelessness at some point in their daily lives, the large majority are unaware of the depth of the problem, the solutions being implemented nationwide, and the costs.

The recently published article “Seattle Under Siege: Record numbers of homeless people are occupying the city’s public spaces, despite massive government spending to fight the problem” by Christoper F. Rofu provides an insightful analysis of Seattle’s homeless situation. Although the article focuses on Seattle, it could easily and accurately describe a multitude of cities across the country. Readers will recognize similar activities and participants in their own communities.
