Local nonprofit proposes a project that could result in 36 homes for low-income renters by 2016.
There’s been debate throughout the summer over the proposed construction of the Nitza Tufino town homes, which would house low-income families along Front and Norris streets. The Zoning Board of Approval says yes; others still say no.
The Women’s Community Revitalization Project will use the funds to provide supportive services for its tenants, one of whom said the community development group is anything but a lax landlord.
Last week, Carlton Williams, the new commissioner of the Dept. of Licenses and Inspections, discussed his plans for the office with the Port Richmond West Community Action Network.
The proposed Nitza Tufino townhouses on Front Street had members of the community divided at a meeting on May 9.
