Louisville KY – Highview residents strongly oppose low income apartment complex – wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather & Sports

The people of Highview did not hold back in Monday’s meeting. They made sure the developers knew that they do not want an affordable housing complex moving in next door.

It’s a proposed apartment complex that brought more than 300 people to Moore Traditional School on Monday night. “We’ve seen your property, it doesn’t match with our area,” said one Highview resident.
Many at Monday’s meeting believe low income housing means the crime rate will go up. “When I moved there seven years ago, my daughter said to me mom I think this is a safe place for you to live, but I don’t think it will continue to be a safe place for me to live,” said Pat Byrd, Highview resident.

Others fear property values will go down and traffic will increase.
