Stone Oak Residents Come Out in Force to Oppose Public Housing Project.

SAHA's Henry Alvarez and Councilman Kevin Wolff

(STONE OAK - October 30,2006) "I'm here to tell you what it is weʼre going to do," began San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) President/CEO Henry Alvarez at an informational meeting held Monday night on a proposal to convert two Stone Oak area apartment complexes into partially subsidized housing for low income residents. The response to that statement, from the standing-room-only crowd of area homeowners, was immediate and angry. "I would hate for this to be a done deal," warned City Councilman Kevin Wolff, who organized the meeting at Stone Oak Elementary to provide a forum for concerned citizens to voice their opinions and ask questions. "Tell me these people are not wasting their time tonight."

Councilman Kevin Wolff Responds to SAHA's Public Housing Plan

One of the greatest services we provide our children is their education. Without adequate funding, we limit their growth and development. Abating school taxes which are needed for new school construction will only exacerbate this problem. Northeast Independent School District, which has been forced to cap some of its schools north of Loop 1604, already loses $3.7 million dollars annually in abatements for tax-free housing. The proposed tax-free housing project in District 9 will result in further decreases in school tax funding in an area that is in dire need of more schools.
