Donald Roberts lives in Peary Court with his mom Ruby. They rent one of the 48 deed restricted “affordable” units. Their situation is puzzling. With a combined annual income of under $55,850, they qualify for “low-income affordable workforce housing.” Their rent should be $1,571/month, yet they pay around $2,400/month. At that price, their 2-bedroom deed restricted affordable unit at Peary Court is pretty much market rate.
So what happened to the hard fought victory that nearly four years ago “saved” 30% of Peary Court units for affordable workforce housing?
