“Homeless taking their dogs into restaurants” – Rise in Walnut Creek Vagrancy?

Is anyone encountering more unpleasant things in Walnut Creek due to the increased growth?

Has anyone complained about the significant rise in vagrancy in downtown WC – especially around the S California, Mt Diablo Blvd down to Newell block?  The council seems unprepared to acknowledge or address this and it is getting out of hand, with homeless taking their dogs into restaurants and one recently filling up a huge garbage bag of ice from the dispenser in the Habit while paying customers stood waiting?  It is impacting the lifestyle we residents pay top dollar for when choosing WC as the town to buy property and raise families.  If I wanted to live with homeless we would have bought somewhere in downtown SF . . .
