Sin_City_Superhero: I object to ALL old people, not just the poor ones.


Besides, old people don't need companionship. They need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use.

First and foremost, is the contention that residents did not receive proper notification last year when the project was introduced or as it wound its way through the planning and zoning process.

JohnAnnArbor: 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.

How about visitors?


Who the hell visits old people?  Gross.

Rent Party: 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.


Cause we all know how rowdy thos old folks can get

Slangin' and Bangin'.  Dealin' crack out of their nursing home.  Gold dentures.  Throwin up gang signs (if their arthritis is not acting up)

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?

I just don't want to see those old people walking around with their sagging pants.


Those aren't their pants that are sagging.

I'd rather have low-income seniors nearby than some Sun City assholes. At least you won't be surrounded by Alzheimer-piloted golf carts and homes straight out of Edward Scissorhands.

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.

ElwoodCuse: Do you propose to slaughter our tenants?

Does that not fit in with your plans?


Oh, I see. I hadn't correctly divined your attitude towards your tenants.

//They really are doing that in my city, allowing a car shredder to be placed that close to a residential area
