One family moved into Port Chester Housing Authority senior housing. We have not been informed by Starwood where the 13 families with expired Section 8 Vouchers and the other 14 families who did not receive Section 8 Vouchers moved. Apparently almost all of the families who said they wanted to remain in Port Chester near family, friends, churches, etc. were unable to do so. In the old days, this type of relocation was called “urban removal.”

Starwood has the moral responsibility as mitigation to include at least 134 affordable apartments in their proposed development and offer first priority to the families forced to leave 999 High St.
