TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The steam has once again been let out of a controversial veteran housing proposal that was planned for the corner of SW 21st and Oakley in Topeka.
Topeka City Councilwoman Denise Everhart told the Topeka Capital-Journal on Friday (4/20) that she won't proceed with plans to seek a City Council vote on the Victory Village housing development.
Everhart says she reversed her earlier decision, to put the proposal to a vote, after she talked to Veterans Affairs officials, who told her they plan to put the project on hold for a year, to hear more input from area residents.
Neighbors packed the City Council chambers last Tuesday, speaking out against the plan that they call a low-income housing project, under the guise of helping veterans.
