A possible solution to the homeless: Let’s take one of the many empty warehouses in San Bernardino, put cubicles and cots in them with a few port-a-potties and a couple of showers. Allow the homeless to live there.

Recently, I started receiving from my son-in-law, Brian Tunnel, a copy of the Redlands Community News. Both of us are former Redlands residents.

Today, Redlands faces a serious homeless crisis and many are asking the question: Where are the churches?

I hope our community knows that last week Our Town lost an important supporter with the death of Ken King, who even after his move several years ago to San Diego, kept giving to Redlands as a former Redlands Man of the Year.

Re: “Redefining Redlands,” Redlands Community News editorial, June 28.

The city wasted opportunity to have open additional Redlands parks this summer. For just a micro-fraction of the cost that has been paid for the painting and maintenance of all of the Redland's bike lanes, we could have opened our school's lawns and playgrounds to the community during the su…

Over the past several years I have noticed that people living in or passing through Redlands no longer seem to respect the traffic laws.  

Re: “Legislation threatens to derail county inmate welfare, rehabilitation efforts,” by Sheriff John McMahon, June 28.

One of the community service projects of the Redland’s Sunrise Rotary Club is our Read For Life program. We give children books at no cost.

Today, more than ever, we must restore the motto and restore the pledge.

Re: “How many will use the new train?” Ardis Beckner, July 5.

I live in the Smiley Historic District and have seen 10 years go by the abandoned apartment house on Olive Avenue — we all know the one — watching the poor old thing get worse and worse with the passage of time.

Recently, there has been a lot written about the train coming to Redlands and the transit villages and how good all this will be for our town, and all the problems it will help solve — as in, less traffic, more community green spaces, convenience, etc.

I am writing to express my excitement and support for the Redlands transit village. I strongly believe that the kind of mixed-use development likely to occur in the transit villages will greatly contribute to Redlands citizens' quality of life and is right for the city at this time.

Re: “Mayor calls for compassion, derides social media,” May 24.

The Redlands Symphony concert on Saturday, May 18, was amazing. “Cantus Articus” was just such a gift. What an amazing piece of music. I could SEE the tundra and the hills and the environment where the composer lived. What love he had for his home!

I have lived in Redlands all my life. I’m 19 and going to college for political science. I mention this because most likely I’ll move out this city and never come back.

Last week while driving approximately six blocks, I first passed a disheveled, dirty man carrying a black garbage bag northbound from the area around Prospect Park.  

On April 12, the Common Vision Coalition hosted the Redlands Underage Drinking Town Hall at the Redlands Community Center as part of the national Communities Talk initiative sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Re: “The tea party is not dead, it’s growing,” John Berry, April 26.

Dear editor: Congratulations on establishing a brand new printed news service to our community. As you already know, you will be serving a remarkable community. I want to give a shout out to just one of the dozens of planned or recently completed projects that every day are making Redlands a…

Since 1994, when Gov. Pete Wilson signed the California Transit Village Act into law, numerous communities in California have successfully implemented rail-oriented developments that have reduced dependency on driving and allowed residents to live, work and play in their local communities.
