They’ll be back on the streets to panhandle and take dumps.
Lol that’s what you get for complaining. Was: temporary Now: permanent
600k per person or couple? That seems both generous and inefficient. Free utilities too, I’ll bet.
> The price tag per unit is $600,000 which includes preparing the site, utilities, materials, and labor. <
Wow. Just wow.
Sixty-one units, roughly 240 square feet each, will sit on the barren six-acre site on Evans Lane, which is designated for affordable housing. Half of the homes will house formerly homeless individuals and the other half will be for low-income families. Each shipping container will have multiple units.
“It saves time, said VanderVeen. What happens the modular housing is constructed offsite in a factory and brought to the site. Utilities are hooked up and it’s ready to live in. It goes much quicker than regular construction.
The price tag per unit is $600,000 which includes preparing the site, utilities, materials, and labor. The citys housing department said that’s consistent with current construction costs.
$600,000 for a metal box no bigger than your average garden shed.
I can’t tell if officials are more evil and cruel. Or totally stupid and insane.
$600K! per Unit, Are they out of their frikking minds?? you can BUY Outright a 3 bedroom 2 bath Manufactured Home for under $100K Delivered and Setup on your Lot!!
Willow Glen is one of San Jose’s upscale neighborhoods. The people who live across the road from us here in Danville moved from Willow Glenn two years ago. They paid $2.1 million for their present residence.
I cant tell if officials are more evil and cruel. Or totally stupid and insane.
Why can’t they be BOTH?? I think they are.
Put em in. Seal em up. Send them to China.
AWESOME!!! Then they load the containers on a ship bound for China, right?
Why not a previously used FEMA trailer?
“Each shipping container will have multiple units.”
So, you’re taking a 240 square foot box and dividing it into multiple units.
Did these morons get that idea from Nazi Germany where they packed them Jews into cattle cars like that?
Cruel. I bet homeless advocates will be screaming over this. Demanding 1500 sq ft. homes for every bum.
NK would be better.
This is the plan. Put the homeless in shipping containers. On an eastbound train.
We First Coasties DO NOT LIKE THAT IDEA!
THEY ARE YOUR PROBLEM! KEEPEM THERE!
Gotta be a LIEberal idea!
Gotta be a lotta graft, theft and corruption, too, since it is a LIEberal idea!
