There are too many transients congregating downtown, especially in the area of Eagle Park. It is unsafe, particularly in the evening, for women & children to walk in the area. Human waste, discarded drug paraphenalia and general filth & debris are showing up all over the downtown area but particularly at the park, on Main St. and at the parking structure. People are sleeping in business doorways and catcalls & sexually suggestive comments are the norm when passing by many of the transients. How does the City and the Downtown Merchants expect to draw people in when there is so much negativity going on? Pretty soon businesses will abandon the downtown for an area their customers feel more comfortable in all that development money and energy will have been wasted.
