Establishing a low income family concerntration site in this neighborhood will turn this place into slum. Crime rate will go up, and good people will move out. Property value will goes down. Less tax revanue for the city, but expense for public service (police potral etc) will jump. For people who supported the low income concentration site, they need to think about the unintended long term negative consequence.

KDF's proposal seems to care about low income people. To me, KDF's goal is to make profit, and Mountain View residence will have to suck up the consequences. I am glad that the council rejected the idea.
