Mission community group opposes project to construct housing on parking lot

The project calls for 56 residential units, 18 percent of which are considered to be affordable. But Scott Weaver, an attorney who volunteers for local activist groups like USM, called the project’s affordability component “ridiculously low,” and criticized the project for potentially exacerbating traffic and infrastructure issues in the neighborhood.

The same developer also bought an auto shop and wanted to build housing there. But it was blocked because the auto shop was a "historic" building
