The one guy who seemed to support it made it sound like this one was transitional or low income rental.I think the 14th project is actually for homeless rather than affordable housing. I’m sure someone more knowledgeable than me will clarify. Build that near a lot of rich single family homes and NIMBY opposition is inevitable regardless how small it may be.
The community meeting was textbook nimbyism. Complaints about this project included:
-more traffic and parking problems. (multiple complaints about this issue, and actually caused me to chuckle openly)
-worsening the issue of public drunkenness (a couple of people brought that up....I remember asking myself, is this really happening?)
-noise was brought up as an issue
-complaint that Hillhurst/Sunnyside already has a higher per capita amount of subsidized housing compared to other neighborhoods.
-good old fashioned land values dropping
All other proposal drew some complaints, but this little development easily drew the most complaints.
