Somerville: the city where policies are based on how happy they make residents
This sounds like an advance for public mental health that could be tried in many other places! Does anyone know of examples where they reside? I wish the Adelaide City Council (South Australia) had asked the residents of the entire metropolitan area before spending our rates and taxes on yet another sports stadium renovation.
Not only does Adelaide have plenty of mentally ill homeless people who live in the city centre, sheltering in parks and gardens, but it also has homeless and displaced people living in quite well-concealed tents in the parklands. They recently decided to evict them all, and a homicide resulted.
