Maintenance not Demolition! Affordable Housing Now!

***Community Member facing *Eviction* from Affordable Housing Corporation***

*Please attend City Council Meeting October 27th at 6:00*

A member of the Peterborough community has recently received notice that a housing corporation is pursuing eviction rather than making the basic repairs and minor renovations that are needed to ensure the health and safety of the tenants.

This Monday, Homegrown Homes, recommend to City Council that the house be demolished.

The motion was passed.

Next Monday, the decision will have to be approved in order for Homegrown Homes to go forward with evicting the tenant and demolishing the affordable housing unit.

***Let members of city council know that people have a right to stay in their homes and that housing corporations have a responsibility to conduct necessary repairs by attending the City Council Meeting on Monday, October 27th at 6:00!***

Fight to Win!
