Lynn Donovan moved to the Magnolia Court subdivision last year. Eager to get away from what she said was rising crime on Broadway, she and her husband built a house in the long-planned but slowly developed subdivision.

The neighborhood was nice, she said, and peaceful.

I wonder if the Trump administration would be amenable to eliminating the funding for scattered sites, as a cost-cutting measure. Opponents of the housing might find this to be a fruitful path to investigate.

Low income housing has NEVER resulted in increased property values or a benefit in Economic value. There is a Reason the previous administration forced these new developments to be built in more upscale environments. It didn't work back then and won't now.
