Love where you live!
Unfortunately Mr. Smyle and Batman are uninformed regarding Section 8 Housing and Affordable Housing.
In the first place, there is no indication or research that or police reports that crime is associated with either. Do they realize that everyone who lives in the Springs is renting according to their ability to pay and subsidized by Section 8. I know of no incidence of crime associated with this very much needed housing for our seniors who fall into the income level required.
In the second place, I doubt that either of you are aware of the units in our city that are considered "affordable housing" such as those that are part of the Alterra complex on Fletcher Parkway.
Maybe the two of you are coming from some part of the U.S. where "public housing" was built in large complexes, not maintained, and had irresponsible landlords....but that's not in La Mesa!
