Today, we got an email from a reader who writes that he's noticed "homeless /drug addict/graffiti people from downtown seem to have moved into the Spokane Valley between Pines Road and University Road, a few blocks on either side of Sprague Avenue."
He's asking: where are they coming from? Why so many?
I drive through the Valley a lot, sometimes late in the evening, and I've noticed at least one person living in an car in a vacant lot near Sprague Avenue and University Road - but one person isn't a crowd.
What have you noticed? Anything? Any changes? Have you noticed more homeless camps? More graffiti? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and please include pictures of graffiti and the approximate location, if you have them.
