Neighborhood Rejects Planned Modular Housing

TheTownTalk reports from Alexandria, Louisiana, that a planned multi-family, modular housing development was blocked at a city council meeting by residents concerned that property values would fall and crime would increase. The council was considering a proposal to change the zoning from agricultural to multi-family to allow for the housing. Developer Lewis Lauve III, describing it as good alternative housing, said the project actually calls for single-family modular cottage homes that sell for $55,000 to $65,000. The plan was to include a pond, and a playground for children. In the face of opposition from neighbors, the council voted down the project 7-0.
