Residents in Nancy Pelosi’s district are furious after efforts to clean up the Tenderloin district have pushed the homeless into nearby residential neighborhoods.
The Tenderloin district, which routinely votes for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has thousands of homeless living on tents throughout the streets. Efforts by the city to clean it up seem to be backfiring and upsetting residents.
San Francisco has launched an effort to clear homeless encampments in the Tenderloin District but, as Wilson Walker reports, that has made the problem worse in other neighborhoods
San Francisco launched a massive effort to resolve homeless encampments in the Tenderloin earlier this month.. While that effort appears to be enough to settle the lawsuit, city leaders are now hearing from other neighborhoods.
The city had just over a month to clear 70% of the tents in this area, and they did it. Many streets reflect that, but others do not. The conditions on Willow, for example, are getting a lot of attention. And then there’s the neighborhoods beyond the Tenderloin.
“I have been here since 1973, in this neighborhood and this residence since 1988,” explains David. “It has never been this horrific.”
