Met someone today who claimed to be living in her car.
(Claimed to be hunting her ex as well. )
There must be parking garages, multistoried structures perhaps that are no longer able to attract enough normal business. Perhaps, A proposed freeway never got built or a bypass did get made. Or the
amusement park closed or burned.
Each resident gets two parking spaces, access to a community restroom, shower, coin laundry. Maybe the top floors can be separated by automated gating, with garage continuing at a reduced level of business.
A watch made the residents could keep thing more secure than on the street.
Bet some homeless folks have done this without bothering to tell the garage owners.
||Something has to be done anyway. Most places are
aiming for gentification, to improve market evaluation,
but that means affordable housing is scarce. Lots of
people, most people out there, don't have anything but
their jobs. That's a big reaason I'll never completely
accept capitalism, because it keeps people from getting
the things they need cheap or for free. So, if society
isn't going to have affordable housing that reduces
market value, then there has to be something like what
you're proposing here: that nobody in their right mind
would want to live in. That's great for psychiatric
homeless. But there needs to be some basic affordable
shelter for people in their poor state of nature. If it
has to be an unmarketable thing like living in a parking
garage, so be it.
||Somehow China manages to house 1.3 Billion poor people
and Canada doesn't even have forty million and there's
thousands homeless in every city.
||So the penniless owners of the burnt amusment park decide to give away free space and hot shower water, an altruistic teir in their eyes? Where does the money come to run this?
||Fines. There will be an increase in fineable offences as
the population expands.
