Nowhere to Go: Critics Want More Downtown Restrooms

More public restrooms. That's what advocates for the homeless said is needed in downtown San Diego.

They voiced their concerns at a meeting of San Diego's Center City Development Corporation (CCDC) Wednesday.  CCDC provides money for construction of public restrooms, but by law cannot operate them. Instead hours of operation fall on the city or private businesses where the restrooms are located.

One advocate from Girls Think Tank questioned 200 people on what was most needed and said the "overwhelming response was the need for restrooms and access to drinking water."  

Advocates stressed a need for public restrooms in the East Village. They asked that public restrooms at Petco Park be opened from sunrise to sunset.
