City Council approved an endorsement of Grand Court Residences, a low income housing project across from Sam's Club on Sherwood Way. City staff said at the time that Council was merely showing its support, nothing else. That changed with last week's Development Corporation meeting, which approved a $200,000 loan at 3% interest to the project's developers.
How many council members were aware of this next step when they made their vote? It not only seems pertinent for council, the public would benefit from city leaders painting a bigger picture.
