Park the Homeless out-of-sight-o-meter

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 12/15/2009 - 16:29.

Here is one of the Out of Sight Out of Mind Parking meters recently (finally) installed in downtown Cleveland, Ohio - just in time for XMAS. 

This one is right next to Wahoo Field.

These bright yellow Icons give Downtown Cleveland a clean, friendly feeling, don't they?

Buster, aren't you being too cynical?

Hello Jeff,  

What is wrong with the Downtown Cleveland Alliance using a dozen or so yellow parking meters to collect coins for the homeless?   Don't you believe that the DCA gives all the  money collected to faith based organizations - which allows these faith organizations to provide much needed assistance to the homeless?

And, since the help comes through churches etc, there is the additional advantage to the homeless people that they won't be tempted to spend cash they might collect on alcohol or drugs.

Please, you seem to complain without a sound basis...
