    Nobody want this 'affordable housing' in their neighborhood. Those kind of buildings always deteriorate and become filled with the criminal element. We tried this in the 1960s and 70s and it didn't work. Section-8 tenants are the worst of the worst, no sane landlord wants them. Most neighborhoods don't want to be upzoned either and the city council understands this.
