Income earners will move.

9. Please tell us any other ideas that you have about a Safe Parking Strategy in Fremont. I agree that this is needed, however my fear is that this will turn my street off of Farwell into a unsanctioned parking area. Not all will qualify for your program and I am sure they will end up here.We already have an issue out here and at this time there is little that can be done. How can you assure me, my family and my neighbors that if this goes into effect it will help not hinder the clean up we do daily after the homeless. We want help to. FPD are great but can't do it all, and are limited. Don't forget about us I have lived in Fremont for over 40 years and have loved this community but feel like it is slowly slipping away and will soon resemble dirty streets like other city's close to the North.
