    Re: Banning Troubled People From Cherry Creek Trail Just Pushes Them Into Neighborhoods – Let’s all shed a tear for the folks living in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Denver who have to deal with seeing poor people…

      Um, there’s a huge difference between “seeing poor people” and having used heroin needles in your yard.

      • surly trucker

        In my defense, no one in the article describes finding used needles.

    Denver spends upwards of $50 million on Denver’s homeless problem. You could create many more safe intersections, bike lanes and even affordable housing with that kind of money.

    I’d guess that Phoenix which is twice as big with a lot higher rate of poverty spends maybe half as much as Denver on the homeless. Phoenix does of course rely on a lot of Federal subsistence transfers.

      For $50 million / year, you could just build cheap apartment buildings and put all the homeless people in homes. That’s basically what Salt Lake City did.
