with 'housing' tag

not so fab yet

the property at first and broadway in downtown that was supposed to be turned into a park now could be used for temporary homeless housing. it’s just an even dirt lot right now, not really used for much of anything. it was a food truck parking lot during the recent july 4th festivities, and there are usually encampments on at least a couple of the adjoining sidewalks. i have a feeling that it being adjacent to grand park will make it impractical to use for temporary housing.

this is what it looked like almost 18 years ago:
