Big Plan to Overhaul Oakland Public Housing

The Oakland Housing Authority, perhaps the city’s largest landlord, manages two different types of housing: large, multi-unit complexes, and smaller apartment buildings of around six units apiece, scattered around town. For years, the Oakland Housing Authority has either been too broke or too incompetent to maintain the so-called “scattered sites,” and many of these small complexes have degenerated into horrific nests of drug dealers, homeless squatters, blight, and misery. Now, the Housing Authority has a plan to deal with them once and for all, according to the Oakland Tribune.
