When did Romoland become the dumping place for all of Riverside County's ills? What is our elected politician (Marion Ashley) doing to keep our town's best interest at the forefront of the matter? We do not have the resources to support something of this scale, and it is “GREAT” that Riverside County cities advised they would be "RESPONSIBLE" for their homeless in Romoland, but that is neither practical nor believable. Again, our politicians are stating they will feed us Fillet Mignon, when they are plopping dog food on our plates. If they are not willing to support their homeless in their own cities, why would I expect them to support them in a separate area/ Romoland? We do not need our peace and quiet interrupted with all that comes along with homeless shelters (drug, alcohol use, etc...) This shelter needs to be placed in a CITY where it can be best utilized and managed. Not a small town with limited resources. Any city that has it’s own police force to address the aforementioned issues would work and be the most practical choice. I consider this proposal and other "Romoland" inspired proposals by the Riverside County Council to be and attack on the Romoland residents' way of life. If these attacks on Romoland residents continue to occur, we need to seriously consider who is representing us and elect someone quickly who WILL represent us. It appears we have no representation currently, or the representation we have has other vested interests contrary to our best interests.

Actually, Salton Sea sounds like a great idea, but I think the shelter has to be in Riverside County. And do Romoland and Homeland still exist? I know it's an old post but I thought they were annexed to Menifee.

Yes. Romoland and Homeland still exist. Menifee was only able to take half of Romoland north of Mapes. If they want to build a shelter, it should be built near city centers not the outskirts of "new" cities, or near small towns where there are no services, industry/jobs, tranportation, or police force to support that population.

The RTA services that area. There are no jobs "in town" either, and the available police are busy with the section 8'ers, so yeah, we need to spread them around a little bit.

but Kat that is so un PC? and how can these freebie places with officers who depend on donations to justify being on the corporate boards if there's no needy to solicit funds for like some place in HEMET....

you mean that the U.S.A. should have stricter border securtiy like SOUTHERN MEXICO where they kill central Americans who cross, but WE give them free food, shelter, drivers licenses, HUD, section 8, food stamps....

my my my maybe America will grow a pair one day....YEAH, HOW ABOUT MEXICO? GOOD IDEA

With so-called leaders such as L.A.'s mayor Villa Ragosa wanting to give I.D.'s, you just might as well give up on closing the border. You should not spend one cent in L.A. He makes the problem bigger, and then it just spreads.
