What do we do to solve the homeless issue? What do we do to solve the climate-disruption issue? What we should do is get on a pathway to solving some of both issues at the same time. How?

We do not solve the homeless issue without a place for the homeless to go. This should be a form of a commons and should be on public land. We could have simple structures for shelters, community bathrooms, a community dining commons and full-time attendants. Is it expensive? Is not the currently reported cost of $120,000 per year per homeless person in the Tri-Valley expensive? Is not the $17 million cost for Vineyard 2.0 expensive? It seems to me that we could implement a commons for less than this.
