If you are wondering why there are so many RV's on our streets its because the City is ALREADY sending the homeless to our communities. If you read The Process (link below) the Police are now instructed instead of waking up the homeless when they are sleeping in their car illegally they place a map on their windshield and instructed to go to GREEN ZONES where they can live in their vehicles 24 hours a day or to a YELLOW ZONE where they can park their vehicles from 6AM -9PM. Wilmington has more green zones than San Pedro, Harbor City and Harbor Gateway COMBINED. San Pedro has the MOST yellow zones and vehicles can park 24 hours a day up and down Gaffey and Pacific from O'Farrell to 25th Street. Where Joe lives it is a RED ZONE. No vehicles/RV's are allowed to park there.

by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, including the Emergency Shelter.
