Increase Affordable Senior-Citizen Housing

March 03, 1988

As president of the Glendale Human Relations Council, I want to congratulate you on your Feb. 11 article about recent extreme local rent increases and their effect on senior citizens in Glendale.

I have written to the owner of the apartment at 245 W. Lorraine St. in Glendale of our dismay about his actions and his refusal to meet with his tenants.

Perhaps little can be done in the short run to alleviate hardships on seniors with fixed incomes because of a shortage of affordable housing. However, it is important that people of good will their concerns about this problem and do what they can to increase the availability of affordable and adequate housing for seniors.
