The Proposal: A Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOH) backed initiative to convert the Edward II Inn on Scott and Lombard into 24 units of supportive housing for young adults between 18 and 24 transitioning from foster care.
The (definitive) Response: “We have no problem with the services and what they’re doing for these young people,” said Lori Brooke, president of the Cow Hollow Association. “It’s really the place they chose that’s the problem.”
The Reason: “Some say the new residents could bring more crime and that including affordable housing into the pricey neighborhood could affect property values.”
The project is awaiting the Mayor’s approval for a loan to make the proposal a reality.
