Anne C. Dahle: Destination unknown

January 22, 2014 

I hope that Raleigh Housing Authority Director Steve Beam will put his magic to work for the poor in Raleigh (“Fewer public units for Raleigh,” Jan. 19 news story). Where will the poor now living in Capitol Park live?

This area replaced a complex where mostly poor people lived in substandard housing. I wondered at the time if all those folks who were displaced were able to find housing at comparable cost.

Where will these displaced poor go with the agency having a very long waiting list?
