Hickenlooper's Homeless Housing Proposal
Homelessness is a problem, to be sure. But a $300 million problem?--funded by taxpayers, of course:
DENVER -- A panel of activists and experts working with Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper's 10-year plan to stamp out homelessness is considering massive apartment-style complexes funded by taxpayers to shelter the homeless.
The Denver Post is reporting Monday one proposal could be to ask voters to fund a single bond issuance, up to $300 million to build or upgrade housing.
Hickenlooper's plan, called Denver's Road Home, is a private-public partnership he hopes will reduce the number of homeless living in Denver's streets and parks.
