In Phoenix, a colossal homeless encampment known as “The Zone” is being forced to disband after local residents took legal action. This settlement, home to approximately 900 individuals, has become a public nuisance, according to the residents and businesses in its vicinity. The question now looms over what happens to these displaced inhabitants and where they will go next.
One might argue that this is just another game of societal whack-a-mole, where the problem isn’t solved, but merely relocated. But, this begs the question: Is the persistent issue of homelessness in America really about insufficient housing or a deeper, more profound problem such as drug addiction and mental health issues? The hard truth is, many of these encampment dwellers have chosen this lifestyle due to drug addiction, opting to live outside societal norms where they can continue their habits undisturbed.
In an ironic twist, some environmental advocates, who usually champion the preservation of our environment, seem to turn a blind eye to the heaps of waste and pollution generated by these encampments. In Phoenix, the residents have decided enough is enough. They want their neighborhood back, free from lawlessness, unsanitary conditions, and safety threats. The balance is off, and the scales of justice need recalibration.
As the city of Phoenix prepares to disperse the inhabitants of “The Zone,” they’re also working to provide safer options for the displaced. The city’s plans include leasing more hotel rooms and vacant buildings to convert into shelters, and building an outdoor campground with security, restrooms, and hand washing stations. However, will these efforts merely shift the problem elsewhere or contribute to a solution? Only time will tell.
