    Keep ARCH Mesa housing affordable and environmentally friendly

    Dear Residents: Please be aware the remainder of North Mesa is tentatively scheduled for demolition by March 2018. This includes the current Central Gardens, Central playground, and surrounding open space. Phase 2 of the Mesa housing development was slated to begin in 2019. Housing Dining Hospitality (HDH) is moving one year ahead of schedule without explanation. We are a growing collective of Mesa residents who strongly oppose the timing, management, and planning of residents’ relocation. We are also angered by the lack of consistent, transparent communication from HDH, as well as the disorganized rush to relocate tenants as quickly as possible. Immediate effects of the relocation include:   Permanent loss of affordable housing for students; Extremely higher, unwarranted, and unjustified rental increases; Permanent loss of open space and green, family-friendly park space; Permanent loss of gardens with no plans for replacement; Permanent loss of amenities including storage space and balconies.   We are in the process of compiling a list of demands for HDH. Please become involved to save the park and gardens while ensuring your rental rates for 2017-2018, 2018-2019, and beyond are “grandfathered” into your new leasing agreements -- regardless of where you are unwillingly relocated. You have rights. Let your voice be heard. We are listening. Follow the link to see some pictures of the beautiful open spaces that will be permanently lost: https://flic.kr/s/aHsm82ZWVR
