Meredeth and Really are hitting the nail on the head with their comments. Clustering all the less fortunates together is good from the city's point of view, it allows them to more efficiently serve them by building shelters and outreach centres in one place. The problem is, that it starts a self perpetuating cycle that only brings the area further and further down. Spreading them out would prevent ghettos from forming and also allow people to work closer to their jobs or families.

Also I wanted to clarify a typo in my long winded post, this.. "I'm also disgusted by the developer's cynical use of the "you hate lest they be labelled as heartless in time for the next election. ",

should have read... "I'm also disgusted by the developer's cynical use of the "you hate the poor" rallying cry to force the councillors to approve this deal, lest they be labelled as uncaring just before an election."
