The only way that it will be acceptable to have a homeless shelter in a residential location would be to require every neighborhood in Augusta to share the burden of "hosting" the homeless population. The homeless would have to be equally divided among neighborhoods. The Summerville neighborhood, the downtown business district and the Riverwalk area must also be included. That is the only compromise that we are willing to accept.
We are interested in how residents of all other Augusta neighborhoods feel regarding this matter.
