    In August, the county Board of Supervisors approved a $550,000 pilot program to build a handful of small backyard houses, or upgrade illegally converted garages, for homeowners who agree to host a homeless person or family. Then in February, Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded L.A. a $100,000 Mayor's Challenge grant to study the feasibility of backyard homeless units within the city limits.


    Rents under the county's pilot program would be covered by low-income vouchers, with tenants contributing 30% of their incomes. The county is also sponsoring a design competition, streamlining permits and providing technical aid and financing options.

    While the idea of backyard homeless units might seem far-fetched, officials hope it could be a fast and relatively inexpensive way to house the most stable individuals among the 58,000 homeless people in L.A. County.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    This program is ironic considering this:

    How would they even have room in their back yards for a 2nd house, no matter how small. Most of the lots are relatively small.

    Who would want strangers living in their yard and who would be silly enough to give up a chunk of their property? Well, maybe some of the libtards would advocate this program. Let them do it, just don't force it on unwilling participants.

    Yeah really. And what happens when the homeless
    scum don't met the rent?? Who's going to throw them
    out??? Is the Board of Supervisors going to do it surrounded
    by the Libtard press and some crying POS??? Give me
    a fucking break.

    Anyone volunteering their property for this
    program is a fool. Lets see how many of
    LA's Rich & Famous go for this...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    What home owner in their right mind would agree to do this? The least awful risk would be that the person who would be excruciatingly difficult to evict would trash their yard and home. And far worse will happen to some if this program has home owners who participate.

    Other practical complications-hurdles would be things like relevant mortgage provisions, setbacks mandated by zoning laws, water and sewage hook-ups ...

    Does LA have acres and acres of vacant lots in it's worst areas, like big cities in the Midwest? One of our homeless programs in Detroit is building tiny houses for the homeless. It's cheap, it's efficient and once the same program helps them get jobs, the people can afford to pay for them.

    But there has to be safeguards, like at homeless shelters, that separate homeless families with children from homeless single people, or there are all kinds of things that can go badly.

    Just remember that there is never a plan so stupid that its failure cannot be blamed on those who oppose it.

    Why would they need water and sewer hook ups ? I thought alleyways, lawns, car wheels, parks etc, in Southern California were acceptable as "sanitary sanctuaries" ?

    Is the city going to suspend building code requirements for these hovels?

    Is the city going to indemnify the home owner if their "tennent" has a slip and fall injury on the home owner's property?
