On their 6 p.m. news program yesterday, September 4th, KNBC ran a story about a mobile medical clinic service offered by volunteer medical students from UCLA that sets up along side the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition service near Sycamore Ave. and Romaine St., right on the northern edge of Melrose Village.
Residents have been complaining about this for a long time, saying that it increases the number of transients in our area. Businesses also have a problem with these programs, including that the large crowd that gathers for the free services has grown too large to be safe. And many feel that a better location with better facilities needs to be found for these programs.
