The action was the third extension for the 330-unit project. Work was originally set to begin by Dec.

Although your Sam Hall Kaplan column of July 21, ("Playing Politics With a Landmark") cries for a scathing rebuttal, a presentation of the facts, which directly contradict those in the article, can say more in defense of Jan Development Co.'s actions vis-a-vis the "Highland-Camrose Affair" than any dissertation on my part. You stated that two weeks ago, when we were exempted from the moratorium by the City Council, that we took this as a sign to apply for demolition permits. Not so, we have been in possession of demolition permits since February, 1985, more than two months prior to the "Historical Designation."

The City Council on Tuesday approved a $500,000 grant to a developer, despite questions from some residents about whether the landlord is illegally evicting residents from apartments that are to be renovated. Father Ed Poettgen of St. Polycarp Catholic Church said he became aware of evictions at the Plaza Patria apartments on Court Street because fewer residents from there were attending church functions.
