Comments: While affordable housing on the lot would be great and the urgency is justified, the plans for this project are poor. The design does not interface with neighboring residents well and also could be better designed for the long term happiness of tenants. Historic preservation oversight was circumvented and ignored. Precious FEMA funding is being taken advantage of by out of state developers that have shown little to no concern for the impact a building this size would have on the surrounding historic core neighborhood.
