GREEN TWP. - Residents concerned over proposed low-income housing in Green Township are meeting to organize a protest.
A media release invited residents to attend a planning session on Sunday for a Tuesday protest of a plan by the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority to build 40 to 50 low income units on Westwood Northern Boulevard at North Bend Road.
The proposed construction is part of a January 2012 settlement between township trustees, who sued the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development over how much low income housing be provided in the area, and the federal government. HUD originally wanted 68 units built.
On Tuesday, Feb. 26 CMHA voted 5 to 2 to purchase the property in question.
The residents' meeting took place at the Cheviot administration building, located at 3814 Harrison Avenue, at 6 p.m. Residents of Green Township, Westwood, and Cheviot were invited to attend the event.
