2 Harbor Way Vallejo, California - Vallejo
Please do something about this location (North East end of the Mare Island Causeway). For over 2 years various people have been living here complete with tent, 4 burner gas grill, etc. Today I observed a white male in his late 40s carrying a new item (oval about 1 ft x 2ft) still in the original Styrofoam packing. He also has several locations along the trail that he utilizes and pops in and out of surprising, walkers, joggers, and dog walkers. The park should not be his home and he should not be intruding on others who are paying the bill to maintain the park in the first place. He certainly can move to more remote areas (the pump house seems to be a favorite as everyone says it's not their jurisdiction) that are less invasive of the public space. After 5 years here, I like it but situations like this don't make me feel safe and am considering moving. Also I notice that a lot of porch thefts tend to be done by men riding bikes, much like this fella does. No way do I want to grow old here not feeling safe in a public park. I know it takes a long time to deal with squatters, but this is getting to wear thin. If he want's to live outside there is plenty of National Forest land. Allowing him to live under a bridge will not solve his problem, nor is it fair to the people who want to enjoy the park.
