Sympathetic for their situation but quite the eyesore...

While I am sympathetic for their situation, what can be done about finding these residents a new "home"? This is the homeless situation under the Irving Park / LSD viaduct. There have been multiple fights and on Thursday night the police and ambulance responded. Do we can the Alderman? The police seem to ignore the situation despite the "no loitering" sign.
