Denver Mayor’s AMBITIOUS Plan: Housing the Homeless on Questionable Ground

YouTube player

The Denver administration has decided to house the homeless in a micro-community planned to be built on what was once a toxic superfund site. City officials led by Denver Mayor Mike Johnston have ambitious plans to set up “small houses, but big communities,” aiming to house 1,000 homeless people by year’s end. But here’s the kicker: these tiny homes will sit atop soil that was once awash with hazardous materials. And while Mayor Johnston assures us it’s “mostly safe” now, residents in proximity to the construction are skeptical. You can’t blame them for raising an eyebrow when a micro-community for the homeless is being fast-tracked on land that was part of a former superfund site. They’re not overly thrilled about the idea of dirtβ€”which might be toxicβ€”being moved around during construction.

So, is this an innovation in addressing homelessness or a ticking time bomb of potential hazards? Let’s not forget that these homes are not just small, they come with small windowsβ€”less ventilation. Residents might as well consider wearing hazmat suits. Despite the questions about the site’s safety, officials forge ahead with breakneck speed, insisting that this is the way to combat homelessness. Perhaps we should ponder on the wisdom of placing one vulnerable community on potentially perilous ground. Is this how we show compassion or merely a clever reallocation of otherwise unusable land?
