California Town Enforces 'No-Encampment' Policy and Has Zero Homeless People

•, Gateway Pundit

He said that "We want to see people get help. And we're willing to fund reasonable services, shelter spaces that can help accommodate that." Coronado rejects homeless encampments and other code violations such as being drunk in public or urinating in public or defecating in public. He said that that "what ends up happening is an individual either chooses to get help or they end up leaving."

Richard Bailey, the mayor of Coronado, has reinforced a no-encampment policy in his city, which now reports the lowest homeless population in the state.

Speaking to Fox News anchor Ashley Strohmier, Bailey discussed the policies that he has put in place in his city and how he avoids the mistakes other California cities are making in regard to the homeless crisis that has taken hold of the state.

"The policies that are in place at the regional and statewide level that are tolerating this type of behavior that is personally destructive and also destructive to the surrounding communities are really enabling this situation to increase throughout our entire state, and throughout our entire region," said Bailey.

"Changing these policies will actually have a major impact," he added, speaking from his own experience.

The city of Coronado works closely with the local police force and a homeless service provider to force the homeless population to either get the help they need or move out of the city. They also fund "reasonable" services to help people get "back on their feet."
