City of Folsom Sued Over Low-Income Housing
The saga over low-income housing has reached a new level – a lawsuit. Seven Folsom residents and 3 homeowners associations have filed a lawsuit over the secret re-zoning of land in the North Folsom area. The group claims that its civil rights were violated when the city re-zoned areas of Folsom in order to meet state requirements for low-income housing. Mayor Starsky claims “While the residents have a right to challenge actions of the Folsom City Council, the forum this group has chosen is unfortunate. Now the city is forced to spend more money on yet another lawsuit.” More information is available in the Sacramento Bee.
