East Fort Worth residents fight proposed low-income housing complex | Fort Worth | News ...

it is not surprising that the city council would approve these apts since doing so allows them to escape having them go in other areas where there could be more oppositiion that would be likely to stop the development...
this is not about prejudice but practicality--there are already too many apartments in that area...
the real truth is that the person owning the land probably has no hope of making any money with any development except low-income apartments...

Just another example of the power of special interests to influence the FTW city council...
and probably the fact that most of them have never been IN that part of FTW themselves...

I don't understand why the city feel its ok to continue to put low income apts in East Fort Worth. This is wrong on so many levels. Southeast Fort Worth just got a Major shopping village anchored by Wal-Mart off 287, but the city appears to be doing everything in its power to keep the area down. Why does East Fort Worth continue to be punished by the city?

A even bigger problem is they are trying to build these apts in Far East Fort Worth, which is considered to be the wealthiest area on the East Side.

It is easier to let it go downhill vs trying to raise it up...
you can't be so naive that you don't understand that...
they are just trying to keep low income housing corraled in one area...
