Auburn Zoning is considering the issuance of a change in zoning that would permit the construction of 110 dwelling units in 9 buildings on the southeast corner of Routes 44 and 422 by Redwood Apartment Neighborhoods with monthly rent of $1600-$2400, depending on amenities.
The worst thing you could do is to bring a bunch of rental units to any community. Rental high rises destroyed the City of Euclid!
If these potential “renters” can afford $2,400 per month for rent, they should be able to buy a home. Of course our taxes in Auburn Township have skyrocketed and we are seeing a high turnover of residents. As soon as residents’ children graduate from Kenston, people move.
But to bring rental to Auburn Township is a huge mistake.
Renters are not invested in their community and God only knows how many units will be set aside for “low income” renters. We do not need low income/affordable housing imposed on our community.
The Auburn Trustees are jerks, on a good day.
