I have mixed feelings. I am happy the gov't is addressing the affordable housing issue and hopefully it goes to truly needy families. However, what about utilities? Yes, they have piped water, parking and green areas. But water shortage is a never ending challenge in the DR. What are the options when the problem returns? Who will maintain the green areas? Who will look after the community to make sure it retains its cleanliness. What about safety and security? How or who will make sure it the does not turn into a haven for crime. Like I said all that is find and dandy now and it makes great PR for the gov't but what about the future? Are these projects actually sustainable. I remember when Balaguer use to donate apartments to needy families. Unfortunately, many of them were not use to toilets and running water and tore them out to sell or pawn when they were short of cash. Others lived for a short while then sold them off for a lump sum payment (conti)

I don't think the problem is necessarily a lack of housing for the poor or the dire need for a brick and mortar structure itself, but rather the mentality of the people. Perhaps this is what needs to be fixed first before we go ahead and spend millions of dollars on apartments for those who probably wont necessarily appreciate what they have in the first place.

The other question is about PARKING? Who is going to fill up these parking spaces. If they can't afford to buy property, how many of these people can actually buy cars? And if they can afford to buy a car then why can't they afford to buy property. This question is more like what came first the chicken or the egg?

danny00 graj00, WTF are you babbling about?

Are you drunk? Have you been drinking again?

Or are you trying to be comedian? What ever it is that you are trying to do or
say, it does not sound funny. You better stick to you day job, unless of course
your line of work is beginning to effect your mental state.

God....... if you keep up with your incessant and incoherent ramblings,
perhaps you need to be institutionalized.

I lived near this area 4 years and used to drive by this development as it was under construction. A unit in this future slum may be a step up from the tin and cement blocks people had before, but this is a treeless landscape, the conditions will be crowded, it will turn into a dump in the blink of an eye. Please, is there anything like a city planning agency in this country ??

Planning..............???

Did you say Planning? I thought I heard you say that?
What is it anyway?
I have no clue...............in fact I am totally clueless.
Planning and organization? Are just two foreign words.........What language is that anyway?
