SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Nearly a year after the city opened a facility for the homeless to store their belonging in, residents say they are still being impacted.

“There’s human feces all over the alleys,” said one community member during the public comment.

At the meeting, a Lieutenant with the San Diego Police Department’s homeless outreach team announced they would be adding a foot patrol in the area starting next week.

For the first time, representatives from the County of San Diego said they will also be diverting resources to the area to help with mental health issues.

Meantime, the city is searching for another location to open a storage facility in District 9.

While the exact location has not yet been announced, officials said two sites are currently being considered, at least one of them is in City Heights.
