As a way of boosting an economically depressed area of the city, the San Fernando Redevelopment Agency has approved plans for a 16-unit subsidized housing complex for senior citizens. The city will donate the land, located at 222 Jessie St., and provide $381,668 in subsidies to the developer, according to city reports. Seniors will be able to rent the apartments for $439 per month. Monday's approval came despite complaints from two seniors that the neighborhood, bordering San Fernando Recreation Park, is too dangerous.
