Fort Smith Housing Authority plan gets pushback | News
The Fort Smith Housing Authority (FSHA) faced a small but hostile audience Monday night (Aug. 20) at the Bluff Avenue Baptist Church.
The controversy: FSHA wishes to add 36 units of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-approved housing at the corner of South S and South 16th Streets.
The FSHA will present its proposal at the Fort Smith Board of Directors study session on Tuesday (Aug. 28), seeking $1.094 million in infrastructure assistance from the city’s 1% Streets, Drainage, and Bridges City Sales Tax Funds. The North Point Annex project will seek $659,580 in streets and drainage improvements, while the proposed Bailey Hill Subdivision — the focus of Monday night’s meeting — would require an estimated $434,950 in streets, drainage, and sidewalk improvements.
