No Change in Climate for San Clemente’s Homeless

This area located at North Beach has now become a “conflict zone” for the homeless and local residents as each compete for the rightful use of the high-quality public space there. The residents feel a sense of entitlement based on economic status and a belief that the prized public space is to their benefit, bought and paid for in sweat equity and property taxes. The homeless are drawn into conflict because they have nowhere else to go.
