No place like home Affordable housing important to many area residents Public hearing on development set for June 19 Above, Teresa Aleman, a single mother, earns $6.50 an hour as a secretary. Aleman said the federal Section 8 pro-"9 Betow’Ateman,s 4-year-okJ son, J J., enjoys a quick anack. Aleman is one of the 12.1 percent of New Braunfeteers (2,060 households) who earned less than $25,000 in 1997. Section 8 program helps single mom provide for herself, 4-year-old son Bv Peri Stone Staff Writer It’s almost 5 p.m. Thursday, and Teresa Aleman is facing a minor dilemma. Her 4-ycar-old son J.J. crosses his arms tightly across his Florida T-shirt and pushes out his bottom lip, dragging sandal-clad feet back and forth across the room. About 20 other children watch him pace until a girl sees her own mother and erupts gleefully toward the pair of legs. The woman in charge at the day care raises her voice to be heard over the tapping feet and shuffling and giggles — “Have you looked over there? It* got be here somewhere.” “Come on, J.J. We’ll look in the other room.” Mom to the rescue. Teresa slips into the hall and her pouting son reluctantly follows. Sure enough, Mom finds it — a pink and blue plaid blanket tucked into a yellow cubbyhole. It* a typical day for Teresa, a 27-year-old single mother who earns See MOM/8A By Pea Stone Staff Writer SAN ANTONIO — The public will have a chance to voice its opinion June 19 on a proposed tax-credit housing development in New Braunfels. The hearing will begin at IO a.m. in the San Antonio City Council chambers, 103 Main Plaza. Amistad Affordable Housing, Inc. of New Braunfels will be there, hoping fix more success than this past year. Between 40 and 50 applications will be analyzed at the San Antonio hearing on low income housing tax credit — one of which will be Evergreen Townhomes, an 80-unit complex proposed on a 15-acre site in southwest New Braunfels. The Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program, which was created by the Federal Tax Reform Act of 1986, allows owners and investors in affordable housing to use a tax credit to offset a portion of their federal tax liability in exchange for construction of affordable rental housing. New Braunfels City Council approved Evergreen Townhomes rn April despite some opposition from the public. It* not the first time Amistad has faced opposition. A proposal to develop Huisache Villas, near the Paramount Bowl off Business 35, was denied lax-credit approval this past year. Evergreen’s co-developer and contractor John Seidel said neighborhood opposition was more pronounced the first time. “It* ‘NIMBY,’” he said. ‘‘Not in my backyard.” But only two single-family homes directly adjoin the Evergreen’s property, Seidel said, and they were in favor of the project. There are some people who come from a half a mile away that are opposed, he said. See HEARINGS Residents in San Marcos ‘are proud of where they live’ By Peri Stone Staff Writer SAN MARCOS — Little distinguishes River Oaks Villas from other apartment complexes. The 200-unit tax-credit development at 1900 Aquariia Springs Drive consists of two-story stone buildings with balconies and patios. The scenery is spotted with plants and trees, a pool, playground — even a sand volleyball pit. If anything, the 3-year-old property looks more upscale than its neighborhood. But it* considered affordable housing. Residents cannot live there unless their incomes fall within a designated range. Tenants in a one-bedroom apartment, for example, cannot make more than $23,280 or less than $17,325, Three years ago, the project was granted tax credit through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program to offset a portion of federal liability in exchange for the construction of affordable housing. Amistad Affordable Housing, Inc. of New Braunfels now seeks the same type of tax credit for Evergreen Townhomes, a proposed complex that would house 80 units. The complex would be on a 15-acre site on South Water Lane near Interstate 35, behind the Department of Public Safety Office. New Braunfels City Council approved the complex in April, although some residents expressed disapproval. “(People) just don’t appreciate (their homes) if they don’t pay for it,” New Braunfels resident Betty Neumeyer said.
