I find it quite interesting that things, which are not quite as desirable but needed in Santa Barbara end up in the least desirable parts of town. At least for a while until these things spread out and take over. The NIMBYS did not see that coming. I have always loved the East Side since I first moved here in 1985 or so. I’ve been on the West Side a few times too but the East is my home. I was for the homeless shelter when it opened up down here. Through the years I have had trouble with staff members more than anyone else and only a couple issues with homeless folks.
However, I haven’t had issues with PATH staff at all. The guy that ran the shelter before PATH was horrible: always yelling about one thing or another and blaming the neighborhood for the problems of the homeless, although I think he himself caused most of the problems. I don’t like that the homeless shelters are turning into Alcohol and Drug rehabs but at least there are not as many problems. Now that the North Side is becoming the New East Side that is acceptable (just kidding). Suggest something like the Guardian Angels and it turns into “Oh it’s really not that bad. We can do it ourselves.” And that is fine though it’s been this way all along. Meanwhile, the more a town grows so does everything else (including crime). That is just the way it is.
