    Meanwhile the City just agreed to give $10 million to AMCAl for the First Street apartments (cash and vouchers) for just 69 low income units. That is obscene given the homeless situation downtown and the City’s lack of efforts to solve that issue. Last year AMCAL was asking for $5 million which was opposed by staff. Looks like not only did Sarmiento get his way, but he doubled the amount of subsidy for the developer! Meanwhile, Heritage LLC which is paying the fees for this affordable development’s financing, is putting 1200 households only 500-600 ft from airplanes landing at John Wayne. Hey apartment dwellers, good luck with the noise and air pollution! And City, when Heritage cannot rent out those units when the economy crashes and/or people do not want to live so close to aircraft landing, you will have another slum on your hands. Ha! Ha! Ha! This City is led by so many incompetent people…

    This albatross has been costing the city millions of dollars a year and not keeping pace with the actual costs. It should be shut down its dead weight.
