So many people are camping out off and on, and they keep getting camping supplies that end up in the garbage.

In Sebastopol, one of the last trailer/campground sites soon to be taken over for some building.

People receiving the $990 monthly disability check or other income could chip in a percentage. Those with no income could get a voucher or, if capable, do some minor maintenance in exchange for a campsite.

There could be another camp — or one integrated with tents — for those who are living in vehicles.

Trying to make insurable, approved up-to-code habitats for even one family — ask those trying to rebuild in Coffey Park or Fountaingrove — is big money.

Think about it. Keep pushing campers down the road and cleaning up their trash and belongings, or have a campground for legitimate occupancy.

Stony Point project

EDITOR: On Monday, you published a letter from Doug Gibson concerning the construction on Stony Point Road south of Sebastopol Road to Hearn Avenue (“Unending road project”). His suggestion that you inquire about the project is an excellent one. Just who is responsible for the delays?

I have never seen a project go on for so long in my 60 years in Santa Rosa. Who is paying for it? Who is the contractor?

I am sure I am not the only one concerned about this project.

A refreshing start

EDITOR: How gratifying it was to open the Let the Public Speak page on New Year’s Day and not find one single letter condemning Donald Trump with the usual unfounded diatribes of name-calling and false innuendos.

I suppose Democrats must have been working off the previous night’s celebrations with a hit of legal marijuana and forgot to send their standard sour-grapes letters. I’m sure they will remember by midweek once they get over the taxes incurred by smoking legal weed.
