Homelessness was on the minds of officials and readers this week. On Tuesday, City Councilman Jesse Arreguín introduced his Compassionate Sidewalks Plan, which aims to bring together disparate members of the community in a working group to come up with solutions to the nagging issues surrounding people living on Berkeley’s streets. The City Council agreed it was a good plan to explore. Is this more of the same old, same old? Many readers seemed to think so. Arreguín and other officials got a jump start on the problem when they assisted in the county-wide annual count of the homeless at People’s Park.
