Artisan at Mission Creek is close on Yarrow but not cheap. Seven Pines is just south of I-35 on Zarzamora should be cheap but not great. Just north of Military Drive off Zarzamora are some apartments across from the Police substation on Kendalia.

Seven Pines apartments should fit the bill if any available. I think it's two separate apartment complexes side by side there ...it's just a a block or two South of Military drive on Zarzamora. These are older apts. and nothing special. You can blow all your money between work and home. Olive Garden, Furr's , Longhorn Steak house, Freddy's ...it's really changed.

Those are the Seven Pines and the single story just south of those maybe a different name. It was a great hood just south of there in the 60's and 70's. Good luck!

If they are an "affordable housing" community that makes you fill out a form about your income, there's usually a waiting list. The way it works is that they get money from HUD to build or make improvements and then they have to offer affordable housing for a while in return. Not a bad deal if you qualify except for the waiting lists.

The most common crime when you live in apartments anywhere in town is getting your car broken into, and you won't have to worry about that.

About the affordable living complexes, some very nice and fancy apartments offer that deal...there was a complex I looked at outside 1604 on 281 that offered it. It's a certain percentage of the complex, usually not the whole thing. Of course it means if you don't meet their income guidelines, you're probably going to be paying $1300 for the apartment instead of $800, which is irritating to think about.

Need more info - cheap and safe? cheap and clean? cheap and close to shopping and schools? You get what you pay for. The "cheap" complexes I've seen are dirty, both the property and the pools, kids run wild, loud music, etc.

Check Craigslist for apartments, which is how we found the one we are in. Then use the VIA website to check bus schedules for routes. Even a short bus ride may get you into a much nicer area. It may be well worth your time and money to spend a couple of days here before hand to check out the area.

Lackland area might actually be an option, it isn't too far and there's a bus that goes right up and down Military
