SAN ANTONIO — Residents in a Northwest San Antonio subdivision are upset about plans to build an affordable housing apartment complex in their neighborhood.
People who live in the Silver Oaks Subdivision near Culebra and F.M. 1560, are upset about plans to build a 120-unit affordable housing apartment unit next to their homes.
Homeowners we spoke with believe having the affordable housing complex will attract crime and lower their property values.
However, the NRP Group which is developing the $17 million Eagles Rest complex says it is not government housing nor Section 8 housing. Additionally, the NRP’s Dan Markson says there’s no evidence that lower rents leads to lower property values.
Homeowners plan to meet with developers to encourage them to drop their plans.Protest against affordable housing complex
