DTLA Could Get Homeless Meters

New, 41 comments

A month ago we noted an interesting post from blogger Brigham Yen, asking why cities like DC and Philly have donation meters that benefit homeless services, while the homeless capital of the nation--Downtown LA--does not. Well, ask and you (may) receive. Councilmember Jose Huizar notes in his newsletter that he "submitted a motion to instruct the Department of Transportation to implement a program to reuse old parking meters as 'homeless donation meters' in DTLA."
