Vachell, Buckley, and Venture Road area has become a camping ground for transients during the week. The police department has been called multiple times to report cars, RVs, and vans parked over multiple nights. Notices have been posted to these vehicles by the police department and the vehicles are moved by their owners just long enough to avoid being towed but always return at the beginning of the next week. Those who reside in these vehicles are leaving behind litter in the form of paper, metal, and plastic scraps. They are also creating traffic congestion due to lack of visibility around these overloaded vehicles. Many times, they can be found BBQ-ing next to the dry fields which creates an unnecessary fire hazard. While we have compassion for those who have fallen on hard times, there is a clear concern for the safety of for all those concerned, including the transients! It appears that because this area is near the county line it is not being taken seriously. What is the city doing to motivate transients to not camp overnight within the city limits?

As a historian, I believe that memory, and the opportunity to include our personal stories in the history of our community, is a human right. What can San Luis Obispo do to ensure that everyone who calls our city home -- whether or not they live in a house -- has a chance to contribute their unique voice to our cultural record? How can we ensure that those less fortunate are recognized as the remarkable, creative, and valuable individuals that they are, and not just as statistics?
