Affordable housing project in Carriage Town approved with 50-year tax break
FLINT, MI -- The Grand on University, a 48-unit apartment complex at University Avenue and Grand Traverse Street, has received approval for a 50-year tax break to move forward with the project. The affordable housing development gained favor among residents and city councilpersons because 43 of the 48 housing units will be reserved for low-income residents. The city will receive about $52,000 less than it normally would each year, according to tax comparison documents. Eric Mays (Ward 1), Maurice Davis (Ward 2), Santino Guerra (Ward 3), Jerri Winfrey-Carter (Ward 5), Herbert Winfrey (Ward 6) and Monica Galloway (Ward 7) all voted in favor. “The reality of it is that Michigan has a serious lack of affordable housing,” Winfrey-Carter, who represents the ward the development is located in, said.mlive.com
