Fresh Start Options Discussed In Hood

A nuisance hotline, neighborhood watch and photographing repeat offenders. These could help address issues with the Fresh Start homeless service facility on east Sherman Avenue, said Mike Kennedy, Coeur d'Alene City Council member, on Wednesday night.  “The goal is, how do we improve the situation right now, while we work at long-term strategies?” said Kennedy. His suggestions were made while mitigating a meeting between east Sherman area businesses, residents and Fresh Start representatives at City Hall/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

  • H/T to MikeK for serving as a mediator on this ticklish issue.

Question: What's the best solution for Fresh Start and its neighbors to deal with problem people around the homeless center, beyond just sucking it up?
