It's the law in our state that a certain percentage of homes and apartments in each community be affordable. This isn't government subsidized, but rather income-based. It's a constant source of controversy in my community. Currently there's another thread on the town FB page about it. One guy said, "I pay $10,000 in property taxes and worked hard to get here. Why should people who didn't work as hard as me get to live here and enjoy my community?" Yikes. First of all, this isn't a big, ritzy city. It's a quiet, rural town. Second, taxes keep going up because the district keeps misappropriating the tax money (abt 75% of taxes are for the schools). And third...I used to date this guy. What an entitled ass.
