Is there any way we could use the Allianz Soccer Stadium, in the Midway? It has hygienic, private showers, locker rooms, plenty of large spaces for unhoused guests' belongings; is warm, has several full-service kitchens, and is easily staffed with safety and security volunteers, as it is during soccer matches. I think it would ease the burden of the Saint Paul Police as well as gain favor and blessing from the Minnesota United Football Club itself.

The facility is set back from the main streets for privacy, and volunteers would have access to heated underground parking. Seeing as the City will own and operate the property outright, this might be a step in the right direction for succoring are homeless. Interior spaces could be modified to host City departmental social services, located a few blocks away at Goodwill Easter Seals on Fairview Avenue and University. Also, all homeless would gain access to the Green Line train at Snelling Station should there be a need to rush to Regions Hospital or any type of employment interviews or job commitments.

The facility, which is new and outfitted with basic medical facilities as well as warmth, nourishment, and controlled access by skilled volunteers, is not to be used (according to the online calendar) until September 20201. I think we could put this facility to good use and save campers from a very harsh winter.
