    I often disagree with Dan McKay, and today is no different. When he talked about the Ballpark Neighborhood in the terms of NIMBYism, he was in fact completely wrong. This neighborhood is the epicenter for homeless shelters. It is literally within a 1.5 mile radius of the High Ave, Geraldine Women’s Center, YWCA, VOA Homeless, the Men’s Shelter, and others not to mention that the state board of pardons and paroles is also there. This neighborhood has been more gracious and long suffering while having more than it’s fair share of the entire state of Utah’s homeless in its backyard. McKay needs to put his money where is NIMBY mouth is and volunteer his neighborhood for the proposed shelter. Let’s see how that goes over with his neighbors.
