Report: San Francisco May Commemorate Where Homeless Die

San Francisco may soon mark where its homeless are found dead on the street if a plan by the city's Board of Supervisors is enacted.

Last week the board unanimously approved a resolution that would allow the city's Department of Public Works to begin installing "commemorative bronze sidewalk plaques" marking where homeless people have been found dead, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 2-foot-by-2-foot plaques — paid for with private funds — are human shaped and would bear the deceased's name as well as the circumstances of his or her death, the paper said.

The bill's sponsors didn't comment when contacted by the paper, the Chronicle reports.
