Hello. I love Downer Avenue. I have a question. Has anyone ever lodged a complaint with the authorities or even mention on this page about a particular homeless person who is on Downer virtually every day of every week and goes in front of all the businesses (CVS, Starbucks, True Value Hardware, Caf├ę Hollander, etc. and harasses people again and again for money? I think he is ruining the pleasantries of that area.
