In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting approvals on sites proposea for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that

financing are already in this category.

No proposal has yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent for as low as $50.00 per month, The City's
greatest need is in the $30.00 ~ $50.00 per month rental range.
