Re: City Council blocks affordable apartments

I am very disappointed the council turned down this project. This council plays lip service to affordable housing but has abandoned rent control for the residents of DeAnza and Clear View Ct. Go back a few years and we find that this same council paid $17 million for 48 "affordable" (meaning subsidized) units (Nueva Vista in the Beach Flats) and destroyed 63 units of affordable housing to do so. This is yet another example demonstrating that Santa Cruz is for the rich and fails to support diversity or plan for people of all walks of life. We have 2000 homeless people (displaced former residents) in this City as a direct result of the City failing to build the kind of housing people need and can afford.

Many thanks to Paul Marcelin-Sampson for this extensive report.
