Exploring the intersection of public space and homelessness


Episode 7: Harley Lever

In a scene that sounds like it was straight out of Breaking Bad, Harley Lever says the tipping point for him was when a mobile meth lab burst into flames on his street. With that, he and his neighbors started “Safe Seattle” to push the city to find “better solutions” for how homelessness and public space intersect, particularly the overlooked space of the public right-of-way where different rules, regulations and enforcement mechanisms are available to managers.
