City Makes Affordable Housing Harder

Letter from Harvey Vengroff

BY HARVEY VENGROFF SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY APR 29, 2017

The Universities need apartments or dorms for their expanding student population and are offering to purchase apartments at substantial premiums. Landlords like myself are tempted to sell because of the premiums offered but have no place to take care of the several hundred tenants that will be displaced.

The City of Sarasota makes it very difficult to construct new affordable housing and has opened the door for us to just sell and move on to other cities that welcome the idea of affordable housing.

Harvey Vengroff builds affordable housing in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
