RRHA votes on plans to demolish, redevelop public housing communities

From Mark Robinson at the RTD:

“In a 6-1-1 vote, the housing authority’s Board of Commissioners endorsed the agency’s annual plan and five-year capital plans. The documents outline RRHA’s formal intent to demolish and redevelop neighborhoods that are home to some of the poorest residents in the region. […] RRHA wants to work with private developers to rebuild new housing and amenities on its properties. Under federal law, residents would have a right to return to the communities once new housing is built there. Residents also will be offered vouchers to seek housing in the private rental market or the option of moving to another RRHA property.”

The documents are available HERE.
