A Seattle mother suggests she was stopped from making use of the public toilet at Green Lake simply because it is reserved for the homeless.

Although participating in at the park with her 18-month-outdated daughter, Kristen went to use the restroom, but discovered that they ended up blocked off with tape. When she requested at the local community centre what was going on, she was explained to by a staffer that the bogs have been reserved for the homeless, and that she desired to use a port-a-potty alternatively of the public restrooms.

Tension grows in excess of encampment close to Eco-friendly Lake

She informed KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson Exhibit, “The woman at the rear of the desk at the local community middle explained that the loos are at the moment reserved for our unhoused neighbors. I was taken aback due to the fact I didn’t know how to respond.”

This intended squeezing with her youthful daughter into a port-a-potty that she claimed was unhygienic to the level of dangerous.

Kristen feels betrayed as a taxpayer, when she cannot even get access to primary human necessities at a park that her tax pounds fund.

“We cannot be anticipated to just go in the streets,” Kristen stated. “It should be accessible for all people.”
