Judge rules low-income renters can access more affluent neighborhoods
quote:

WASHINGTON - A federal judge has ordered the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to implement an Obama-era rule on Jan. 1 that would give low-income families greater access to housing in more affluent neighborhoods.

The 2016 rule was designed to break up areas of concentrated poverty in two dozen metro regions, from Atlanta and Charlotte to San Diego and Honolulu.

It would operate by taking into account the rental prices in specific neighborhoods -- instead of averaging across an entire metropolitan area -- making it easier for poor people to afford apartments in middle-class neighborhoods with better schools, lower crime rates and more job opportunities.

I'd just like to point out that this sentence is false.

It will NOT make it "easier for poor people to afford..........".

They still can't afford it. Getting me to pay their rent doesn't meant THEY can afford it.

How long will these remain unaffected by the influx of new residents?

Love this quote

quote:

Studies have shown that moving low-income families into wealthier neighborhoods results in better lives for their children, who are eventually more likely to attend college, earn more money, and reside in better neighborhoods as adults.


Oh really? "Studies" huh.

Don't suppose those "studies" noted any other effects of moving Section 8 people into an area in large numbers?

Nah.

So bring shite bags into neighborhoods where people have worked their asses off to get what they have and the reward is lower property values and shitty kids destroying nice schools. Awesome.

Why prop up the poor, uneducated, crime oriented and unemployed? All you end up doing is bringing down the property values, increase the crime rate and lower the educational systems in those areas.

Exactly

There is absolutely NOTHING special about the school my kids go to. It's made of wood, brick, windows, wires etc etc. Just like every other school.

What makes the school good is the kids attending it.

Why do we pretend otherwise? It's just silly.

Beef up Section 8 checks to move them into affluent neighborhoods. Obama logic.

What do studies say about dropping half an ounce of shite into a gallon of clean water?

Not exactly....it's parental involvement. When parents dont show to meetings, dont take part in what their kids are doing, the school slacks and you get a shite education. This is why the district my kids go to is good. Heck, the one next to us has asians, indians and persians from all over moving here to put their kids in this high school. And because of that, the house values are ridiculous.

Gotcha.

So it will effectively import the crime and bad actors into good, established neighborhoods.

White Flight Volume II in the making.

The minute I found out I had a Section 8 property in my neighborhood I'd be looking for a new house and neighborhood.

Not everyone utilizing Section 8 are bad people. However a large number of them are. Not worth the risk (or property value loss).

If Obama made the rule, then Trump should go ahead and make another.

Hmm, maybe 'somebody' will be able to develop all that Joseph E Boone street property across from the Mercedes Dome in Atlanta after all?

I bet Emma & John won't be happy to hear this as they kept that voting block the way it is just to stay in office all these years, and blocked developers with a vengeance.

This might work out in ways they didn't envision.

Exactly. This is not a law. I'm not certain how a judge can order a federal agency to carry out a disregarded policy.

Of course Carson and HUD went the wrong route by delaying rather than axing the order.
