Don’t dump the homeless here – Orange County Register

The Palmdale City Council is sending a strong message to Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass today by passing a resolution aimed at not using the desert city in northern Los Angeles County as a dumping ground for the homeless.

The Palmdale City Council unanimously voted on a resolution at its Wednesday night meeting opposing the City of Los Angeles’ use of emergency powers to establish a homeless village in the Palmdale area.

“It’s very clear, very concise. It makes the point known without declaring war on the city of Los Angeles,” Councilwoman Andrea Alarcon said at Wednesday’s meeting.

One of the first things Bass did when she became mayor of Los Angeles was to declare a homeless emergency. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors declared a homelessness emergency at its meeting Tuesday. Supervisor Lindsey P. Horvath said the board’s decision honors LA County voters’ November mandate to “move forward with urgency and transparency to address the homelessness crisis in every neighborhood.”

The Long Beach City Council is also considering a homelessness declaration and passed a statement Tuesday night.
