Trash, drug use and defecation outside the SLO Train Museum

October 14, 2022


Business owners and local residents are expressing frustration over a homeless encampment that has sprung up in the parking lot by the San Luis Obispo Train Museum.

Individuals have been camping in the parking lot close to the SLO Railroad Museum. At night, there are often numerous homeless individuals in the encampment, some who leave piles of trash when they move on.

Business owners in the area say they have seen drug use and urination at the encampment. The city of SLO oversees the lot, and local business pay monthly for parking for their customers.

Be aware, other cities are dumping their homeless on SLO. Santa Cruz police officers used to hand out non-refundable Greyhound tickets to SLO. LAPD officers had non-refundable tickets in the amount of $17.90, coincidently the fare to SLO. We are being dumped on. Santa Cruz can be cold and foggy, SLO not nearly as much. LA is a tough place to be on the streets, SLO not tough at all, they own the place.

People running Rescue Missions say the homeless deliberately choose their freeloading lifestyle. After a few meals and overnight stays, the homeless are required to sign up for their 12-step rehab program.
