As well as in the Atlanta Region. I am the city planner for a town nearly 40 miles from the urban core, which, due to affordability, is having the issues with Section 8 vouchers. So true of Henry County, Clayton County, and Gwinnett County. Everywhere that was "affordable" and compounded the SubPrime crisis through investor-owned housing, is now occupied by Section 8. Some have become foreclosed, though.
Interesting Memphis Article. I took a gander at one of our subdivisions with 179 lots. Over 30% were rental units, owned by an absentee landlord. When I looked at the GA DCA Home website for Section 8 availability, lo' and behold.
For a town that was effectively rural, it's caused a financial crisis, in that the city has to invest in more policing these areas than it can reasonably assume with a small tax base.
Violent crime has not been a concer, but it's been rather uneasy with new gang activity mushrooming.
Intersting, and scary
