Would be nice if the Senior Citizen Center on 22nd St also put into the plan. Been empty since Ike.

Mixed use allows for going vertical on market rate units. That parking lot is enormous, better planning may allow for all the units to fit.

A moral requirement to add 287 new units? According to the 2010 census, there were 19,943 households in Galveston. These last 287 new subsidized units would increase that total by a whopping 1.4%. Hardly worthy of a moral imperative. It will, however, add significantly to the growing empire managed by GHA.

Society does bear a moral responsibility to help house the poor (some of us believe so, at least), but this is a legal, federal, mandate to replace housing that was lost in Ike. A mandate 12 years yet unfulfilled.

I'd like to see another place on the bus route where all these agencies can go. I understand the housing authority's predicament. Hopefully all parties will work together on this.

I use the community center for OLLI events and see many people using the other services in the building. Why not buy some of the vacant property in Galveston to spread out the housing with those millions of taxpayer dollars?
