Glen Springs Manor Residents Plan to Move Out ASAP
Bad plumbing, broken air conditioners and flooding; these are just some of the problems residents of Glen Springs Manor in Northwest Gainesville say they've dealt with for years. But that should change soon.
Dozens of unhappy residents packed into Ridgeview Baptist Church Tuesday morning. Housing officials explained how they would help them find a place to move when Glen Springs closes in January.
People filled out applications for housing vouchers from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. HUD will pay for the security deposits and other fees during the moving process.
"The voucher allows you to live where you want to," said Alachua County Housing Authority Executive Director Gail Monahan. "If you have a child that has a special need or you want them to go to a certain school, you can move to that neighborhood."
Anyone with a criminal record must state their case to an appeals board. Everyone else could have a voucher as early as next week. Most residents said they want to move out before Thanksgiving.
