DENISE GEE, San Clemente

Summer is rapidly approaching. It’s a special time for San Clemente. We thrive on the business tourists bring, as well as our residents who take to the beaches and parks with families and friends.

We already know we have a growing homeless problem. It’s no longer a few souls hiding out in the back country. These folks are front and center.

You can expect to hear from more locals and surely tourists who have never been to our town. They will be stunned and disappointed. As far as our merchants? Their revenues will take a toll, big time.

I do not have an answer. I am counting on you to find one.
