Why not just take APPOINTMENTS!!!!

This creates a huge security issue as well as blocking tax PAYING residents from their RIGHT to access!

If you don't have an appointment, then you are NOT allowed on site!!

And ANYBODY camping out on a city street or sidewalk is in fact "LOITERING" and must be arrested!!!
