Letter submitted by Christina Bogusz–
[RE: City seeks input on how to make Citrus Heights better; Aug. 22nd] I just want to suggest the police department do something about the tweakers taking over this city. You can’t go to Home Depot, Walmart or even Raley’s without the homeless drug addicts being everywhere.
They are getting very bold and come up to you asking if you need any thing. Something needs to be done. Who wants to own a home and raise a family around that??
I bought my home 10 years ago and the problem has increased to an alarming rate. We are seriously thinking about selling.

New Starbucks could become homeless hangout
[RE: Starbucks eyes Citrus Heights location for new drive-thru; Aug. 22nd] I am a resident living near the proposed Starbucks/retail proposal. Since Starbucks allows homeless to hang out at their stores, this gives me pause.
I observed tents the homeless have erected in the vacant lots between Oak Avenue and Sungarden Drive. The police do what they can; but they can’t be everywhere all the time. I asked a Citrus Heights police officer about the homeless in our neighborhood and he blew me off. This gives me more concern.
There are already vacant storefronts in Copperwood Square, so why is more retail space needed?

Homeless still need to be involved in solution
[RE: Letters; Aug. 15th] I still don’t see how you can solve or even try to say your trying to solve the growing homeless and drug problem in Citrus Heights. You never try to ask them or invite us to your meetings. You won’t until you ask us. We are people too.
