West Hollywood's Growing Homeless Population

Not sure if you've noticed it, but there has been a huge spike in homeless people in West Hollywood. On any given night or early morning you can find one or two hanging out sleeping in front of City Hall. This could be due to all the construction in the area. I spoke to a friend that lives near Miracle Mile and there are a lot of new buildings popping up and the homeless seem to be doubling. And these are not the quiet ones I am familiar with and give nicknames to like Ogg, Clarinet Hobo, The Model, and Red Riding Hood. These are some tweaked out psychos that scream at people or fight and the police arrive 45 minutes later to do a drive through Gold Coast's parking lot when the coast is clear.

How About That Robotic Parking Lot?

WeHo's terrible idea is opening in...I'm not quite sure. West Hollywood's official site says that the parking lot located on Santa Monica and Sweetzer is allegedly going to contain 200 parking lots. 

It was supposed to break ground in March of last year and open in August. As of the writing of this the place appears finished but is not available to, you know, the public. The funny thing about this useless lot is that there is a parking structure on Kings Road which is almost across the street has 165 parking spaces but no one really uses it. I've seen video of how the robotic lot that will open up hopefully before unnamed gods return to Earth and laughed. Ever since that area has been worked on other smaller streets have gotten more dangerous. People do 80 going down Harper and La Jolla.
