|$11 Million renovation project – Houston Housing Authority|
Kennedy Place in East Houston has just under gone a major renovation. We’re talking about an $11 million dollar makeover for the public housing project. $8 million came from the federal stimulus package.
Those who are low income have to qualify to live in the unit through the Houston Housing Authority.
The grand re-opening was over the weekend. Even though only 20 families have moved back in to the complex some were hot at what the Insite spotted on the first few days of the residents returning home.
Someone in building 6 decided to hang their clothes out to dry on the spanking brand new balcony.
Sheila Johnson is a resident who says that kind of behavior will not be tolerated from the returning and new residents. Johnson says, “we have a new washer and dryer and I don’t know why they did that.”
This is the concern of many of the residents who surround the public housing unit.
They say those who are moving back into what is considered an upscale housing facility will just tear it down in the years to come.
Johnson says that’s not the case at all. She’s advocating 90 day inspections at Kennedy Place and asking that anyone who violates the rules be removed.
After the Insite made Johnson aware of the dangling shirts and pants – they quickly disappeared!
