San Jose spent $1.3 million on trailers for homeless. A month later, the site was shut down.

After spending two months and more than $1.3 million repairing dozens of dilapidated state-owned trailers for homeless residents, San Jose is dismantling the temporary shelter site — just one month after people moved in. Citing poor living conditions for elderly residents and constant maintenance burdens for the city, officials over the weekend transferred more than 30 homeless residents from the trailer site on a city-owned parking lot near Happy Hollow Park to county-leased hotel rooms.
