You tax dollars at work, Seattleites.
Seattle bureaucrats continue to try and solve their homeless crisis keep the homeless industrial complex alive. In 2017 they opened the Licton Springs tiny home village which is a “low barrier” facility meaning residents can freely drink and do drugs.
I couldn’t find the exact cost of Licton Springs but found that the city will pay the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI), an affordable-housing nonprofit, a combined $1.75 million this year to operate six of the city’s villages, including Licton Springs, with SHARE/WHEEL and its sister nonprofit Nickelsville as partners for on-the-ground staff.
“According to Seattle Police records obtained by KIRO 7, crime in Licton Springs increased 100 percent in just one year. During the same time-period, crime in the larger area covered by the North Precinct dropped 7 percent.”

That’s what happens when you allow criminal activities to go unchecked. See examples here:
- Seattle, you have a problem: Council, police & animal control ignore woman’s pleas for help; 3 dogs from illegal RV encampment maul her & her dog
- Homeless Seattle man, accused of a stabbing, on the loose after failing to show up for court-appointed treatment program
- Seattle Police refused to remove homeless from construction site before they caused $1.3 million fire damage
- Homeless carrying weapons are “slipping through security” at King County Courthouse
