Cedars Neighborhood Supports Affordable Housing Proposal

On January 27, 2011 the Cedars Neighborhood Association voted on an affordable housing development proposed by Matthews CCH Partners.

The development site is located at Belleview Street and Browder Street in the Cedars. It will provide 164 low income housing units consisting of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units. The development will target individuals and families who earn 30%, 50% and 60% of the median income. It will also contain 7,900 square feet of commercial or retail space. It will contain no market-rate rental units and no permanent supportive housing units.

The results of vote are as follows:
96% voted "I support the proposed project"
4% voted "I do not support the proposed project"

Based on these results, the CNA Board will prepare documents for the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs expressing the neighborhood's support for this development.
