Rent Party: meat0918: NIMBY's can go fark themselves.It's one thing to oppose a car shredder 500ft or so from a residential neighborhood and a park, but quite another to say "We don't want the poors around us".No it's not. With the poors comes increased crime, and lower property values. Ghetto is a people, not a place. Moving it out into my nice suburban paradise isn't going to do anything other than devalue my house.If you can't afford to live here, go somewhere where you can afford to live./ NIMBY
Clint_Torres: ...a proposal that sailed through the planning process unnoticed and unopposed barely a year ago.I may be naive when comes to city councils and local governments, but the townsfolk are complaining about something that was already approved and was not objected to previously?/rabble rabble rabble
Nana's Vibrator: abfalter: People who object to low-income housing are often really objecting to what they imagine will be more brown people living near them.Idiots.It ties in with their fears of lower property values, more traffic, more crime; that whole idiot and kaboodle you mention. The best part with this story (though I didn't RTFA) is that it's senior housing. How many seniors are knocking off liquor stores and encouraging gun and pawn shops to move in while tagging buildings with graffiti? I suppose the ambulance traffic might be distracting.
