The city of Phoenix AZ has a homeless problem much like LA. Phoenix has what is called, "THE ZONE" which is much like LA's skid row.
Phoenix elected officials are just as horrible as LA's, both fail to enforce laws on homelessness.
Phoenix businesses and property owners had enough of their goon officials and sued the city for failure to protect their rights....AND THEY WON ! A judge ruled "THE ZONE" must be dismantled by August.
Austin VanDerHeyden is the Municipal Affairs Liaison at the Goldwater Institute, which has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of business and property owners suing the city of Phoenix for maintaining The Zone. Listen to Austin's interview with John & Ken.
The Phoenix court ruling sends a message to all West Coast cities that have failed to address the growing homelessness crisis: no more excuses. It’s time to take our cities and streets back.
