Low-income housing project in Whitehouse raises concerns

Whitehouse residents voiced their concerns at a public hearing on a proposed low-income housing project.

WHITEHOUSE - Whitehouse residents voiced their concerns Tuesday night at a public hearing on a proposed low-income housing project.
 
The plan is to build an apartment complex on six acres right off Highway 110, but not everyone is happy about it.
 
The zoning and planning commission held this special meeting at city hall to let people voice their opinions about the project.
 
More than 20 upset residents showed up against the proposed apartments. The zoning and planning commission agreed overwhelmingly, voting against the plan. Residents we spoke with were pleased with the results.
 
"It's going to affect the property value that's my investment that's the retirement for my home. I'm afraid of the people its going to bring. Whitehouse resident Dawn Renn said. "I don't think we need it out in Whitehouse."
 
Since the plan was denied it will move on to city council to make a final decision. City officials tell us they have not decided when the next meeting will be. The company responsible for the project was at the meeting but declined to comment.
