seems like there is a lot of money to be made in the so called "non profit" housing market.

Exactly,look at the board members, Laura whatever her name was investigated by the FBI? Too many dead ends...smoke and mirrors. Remember the American Red cross was keeping what 80% and only using 20 to further the cause of charity...earmarks should be banned. Crooks just keep getting "saavier".

i lived in an apartment (in another city) where i was told that they have low income units on the premises. I guess they needed to tell me that. Just a couple of months later, my sister inlaw's (who moved in after us) apartment was broken into and valuables stolen. Cops were called just about every week at the apartment complex, not to mention gang bangers who hung out with their friends.
Rancho cucamonga will probrably follow suit as already it's shopping areas are popular with bad crowd, i.e. trouble making gang bangers and such. No one really wants to live next to low income apartments so once built people will move out and the situation will spread, like san bernardino or moreno valley.

You are the exception. Let's get real here......the majority of section 8 renters are low lifes. We've all seen the way they keep their places up, the type of people they have "partying" at their place on a Friday night, etc. Grandma let's her little hood rats stay with her(even though it's illegal), they cause problems at the apartment, etc.. In reality, it only takes ONE dirtbag, to ruin it.
Funny how you mention section 8 renters. most of the crimes committed in the Rancho area are snobbie brats whose parents work all day usually NOT on any assistance and think they are untouchable. With families struggling and trying to make ends meet I would run to the government (SECTION 8) to pay my mortgage too if I was a homeowner.I'd make sure I don't lose what I worked hard for. So when you think section 8 it should be looked at now as a way to HELP HOMEOWNERS not a stereotype of people. when I was accepted I didn't get my assisitance for being low-income I got it for being a VICTIM OF CRIME, Single mother who had my childs father shot in the head for mistaken identity. So educate yourself about programs before you decide who & what type of people are on it. tomoorow you might lose your job and need help!

I think you need to read the police and crime blotters. Or better yet, look on the jail website. 75% arrested here are black or mexican. So nice try. Second, I have lost my job, and have struggled to keep my house and pay bills just like every other person in today's economy. Bottom line, is you move where you can afford. Read any study in the effects of section 8 housing ....all show dramatic increases in crime for that area. Facts don't lie.

Answer the question about Anaheim Hills and Yorba Linda... I work in A.H., Yorba Linda is visable from my office window. Both cities are much more establihed that Rancho and there is no plans and will be no plans for affordable housing around here. So this "It's Law" is crap.
You're wrong. Whereas Rancho is concerned, they must provide affordable housing with 20% of their redevelopment revenue. However, if you don't have a redevelopment agency, then you don't have the same requirements. The reason that Yorba Linda and Anaheim Hills may not have to comply with that law is that they may not have had redevelopment agencies before the shutdown on February 1. For example, Newport Beach does not have to comply because they never had an RDA. And it's not federal law, it's state law.

I am so disappointed in most of these comments! I have lived in affordable housing in the foothill/vineyard area for 10 years. I am now a senior and have limited income, but need to live close to my work due to gas prices. How dare people condemn those of us that work hard everyday and still can't afford the rent prices in most places. I work hard and contribute to the community daily. I am not a dirt bag, not scum, or any other derogatory names used in these comments. Shame on those who can't see beyond their stuck up noses to accept the fact that there are very decent people that need the comfort of a place to live with affordable rent. I hope they never have to experience the hardships some of us face, but still keep a smile on our faces.

Wow it's amazing how ignorant all of you people are!! I am disappointed at how judgemental, superficial, and arrogant everyone is on here. Clearly none of you have ever found yourself in a financial burden, divorce, family death, or single parent families, to understand the importance of such apartments within affordable housing. The guidelines to qualify for any low income housing in ANY city is quite rigorous. You have to provide many affidavits of your financial earnings, legit birth certificates of only your children who will accompany you in the home, and monthly checks into your banking accounts and criminal records. I'm not going to say that everyone is cookie cut to live there, some bad apples to sneak thru the cracks. But for the most part, the people who occupy theses listings are well deserving, hard working, strong willed human beings who just need a stepping stone to get on track with their lives. Think about someone in your families that could probably benefit from this program. I bet each one of you have some family member who is deserving of this opportunity. And if not, then you are lying to yourself and have worse problems in the your life then these struggling independent working class humans!!!!!

wow...i don't think a town like Rancho Cucamonga needs a housing project. I don't live there but if i did, i would be pissed. It will attract all the dirtbags and people that don't care about where they live. They will trash it like they do in LA or Moreno Valley or Fontana.. Nothing but a cesspool
What you are saying is very wrong and stereotypical.. Not everyone who needs help is a dirtbag... It might do you some good to go through a trial and see how hard things are.. I live in HUD assisted apartments and my husband, yes I am married, works very hard to provide for me and our three children. We are very much a normal hard working loving family who just happens to need a little help. Shame on you!

Where is it located? I would like to find a place for myself and my daughter. It is hard to find anything that is affordable and safe. And just because we are below the poverty line, does not mean, we are bad people, we too pay taxes, just like you. So think about what you say, before you judge, or condemn anyone.

Looking back to this... lol Christ. You know, a lot of the early posters claiming that uneducated "scum" will get into their neighborhoods... Have you lot checked on your grammar? Because a lot of it is pretty bad.

Anyway, it's sad to see that a majority of people posting don't understand basic sociology, something of which has been researched and proven and fleshed out in theories throughout the years. Aid given to the poor doesn't even come close to "free money". It merely pushes them out of chronic poverty, meaning they can only pay for food and bills and nothing else. Not to also mention the ridiculous income-gap. All of you should be using your education, something which you claim to value (but seem to not use wisely, preferring material over intelligence), to solve the problem of WHY so many people are forlorn and how we can help them instead of playing the "blame-the-victim" game and feeding your superiority complex. If you're going to give catty answers like, "Well, they're scum and they brought it on themselves"--that's like blaming a child for vomiting on himself. And, if you did your studying and read all the research composed by psychologists and sociologists, you'd know that a lot of these adults who are in chronic poverty, or are heavy drinkers or drug users, have the mentality of a child due to an abusive environment, resulting in a slowed development of cognitive processes as well as other disorders. There's your answer to your problem: not the fact that they are "scum" but because your government, and a majority of you, continue to ignore the source. Handing out aid is not helpful; it's a temporary solution only. If you want the risk of "scum" coming to your neighborhood to vanish, guide your government to recognize the problem and find a definite and sound solution.

Stop pointing fingers at the uneducated and actually put your degree, your education, to use on these social problems. Otherwise all you have to blame is yourself for not being able to positively contribute to your country.

You are correct. Low income HUD Section 8 projects brings in ghettohoods and gang banging trash like the one who robbed two young girls lemonade stand in RC. Disgusting.
