If you are worried about child molesters: research shows that the majority of those are/will be family.
If you are worried about rapists: get mace, a self-defense course and a Xanax for the excessive worry.
If you are worried about "property values going down": back in 2003-2004 I was looking forward to buy a house in Alexandria, VA. Having various sex offenders within the radius I was checking didn't help me find a house under the 300k value.

In addition to purchasing homes and foreclosures, can the HHA build homes? For example, If a subdivision has x amount of lots at the right price and other specs work, can the HHA go in and purchase lots to build homes in a existing subdivision?

What is the max. price HHA can pay for house?

Does subdivision HOA by-laws have any provision to protect from HHA to purchase or build homes in a subdivision?

Default City of Madison says NO to HHA.....

City of Madison says NO to HHA.....Watch out SE Huntsville...The release below was sent to a friend
via his nieghborhood HOA. I am not able to find the release on the City of Madison or HHA site yet to confirm.


For release on:
For more information,

Immediate Release

Madison City Leaders Meet with Huntsville Housing Authority
-- Effort Aimed at Gathering More Information Concerning Paradise Apartments

Madison, AL – Mayor Paul Finley, City Council President Tommy Overcash,
Councilman Bill Holtzclaw, Councilman Tim Holcombe along with City attorney Anne-Marie Lacy and Director of Community Development Bob Atallo met with Huntsville Housing Authority (HHA) Executive Director
Michael Lundy and his staff on Thursday to get more information about
its expressed interest in the Paradise Apartments. It was agreed that the time frame offered to the HHA by HUD to purchase the Paradise apartments did not allow the City of Madison or the HHA enough time
to answer the open questions related to the acquisition of the Paradise Apartments. Based on that, the HHA will not pursue the acquisition of the property.

“This is a very important issue not only to residents of the Paradise Apartments but our community,” stated Mayor Paul Finley. “With the 10 day deadline, neither party had enough time to gather the information needed to make an informed decision on whether to move forward. City Council will take steps to further understand the options for the property and involve the community in that process.”

The Paradise Apartment property will be a topic on the agenda at this Monday’s city council meeting. At that time, City Council will be discussing next steps and all options that would improve the quality of life of the individuals living in those apartments and the surrounding area.

The big question, how many foreclosed properties are there in the SE Huntsville areas?

Huntsville Times Legal Section this week......

heck, if HHA really wants to dump (or share) the burden of their voucher recipients onto Madison and other areas, they can buy foreclosures, can't they, hence no dealing with the City of Madison.

Interesting remarks in the Huntsville Times article today. The HHA can operate 10 miles past a city boundary. If I understand this remark, HHA can only go 10 miles outside of the city limits to purchase or rent/vouchers properties? Madison County is 'out of bounds' for HHA. So communites in Madison County (Per the 10 mile mark of Harvest/Monv/Tony, Hazel Green, Owens Cross Roads, etc) are exempt from HHA actions?


Todays article..
For example, state Rep. Mike Ball, R-Madison, told The Times that he questioned the authority's legal standing to operate in Madison. State law says that a housing authority can operate in an unincorporated area 10 miles past a city boundary, but "in no event shall it include the whole or a part of any other city nor any area included within the boundaries
of another authority."
"That's about clear cut as you can get," said Ball, who has called for increased public supervision of housing authorities. "They don't have
jurisdiction to operate in another city."

Interesting article concerning HHA and surrounding areas.

The Housing Authority Bills: How Many People Do They Impact?
South Hsv Civic Association Blog

Alabama city/county public housing ranking
AAHRA-Alabama Housing Authority Association (http://www.aahra.org/Directory/HA_Rankings.htm - broken link)



off subject, I mentioned on another thread-
A previous post mentioned what restrictions a subdivisions HOA had concerning the HHA purchasing homes.

My question to that one - if a subdivision has HOA dues, who pays the yearly fees if HHA does purchase a home with HOA dues? Is HHA exempt or does HHA pay the yearly dues?
