  1. Not good. Oakley is a place where families can grow. They need a tiny house facility with free rent.

  2. Nothing is free! I need a free mortgage also; any takers. Seriously do we want homeless in our community? Which will attract other people in their condion for free lodging and breakfast. Solutions can’t offer any other than to inforce ilegal camping, loitering and trespassing ordinances.
