From the Adams Morgan listserv:
Has anyone dealt with the issue of homeless folks straying onto their property, loitering, and otherwise taking care of their personal business. We live in a 24-unit building. My poor neighbor has had to resort to shoveling excrement to keep it from getting under our cars and our feet. It’s disgusting and it’s got to stop…
We’ve tried to talk to them, and most times they listen. But two of them sometimes get belligerent, and they almost all keep coming BACK!!
What are our legal options here? Would a restraining order work? Are there other legal things we could do?
Are there other things we can do at the back of the property to dissuade homeless (and for that matter drunk people) from using the area around our trash and recycling bins as public bathrooms? Does signage about monitoring or fines work?
We are at our wit’s end.
