LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Prospect residents are fighting a new low-income senior housing complex on the city’s border with Louisville.
The development, called Prospect Cove, is the product of LDG Development, the state’s largest affordable housing developer.
Prospect Mayor John Evans is against the project, and the city’s council has approved a resolution against it.
“It’s massive. It’s huge,” Evans said. “It is putting a whole lot of low-income people into a very compact area.”
The project is on the city’s border but is in Louisville on Timber Ridge Drive at River Road. That means Louisville’s city council will have the final say on whether the project goes forward.
“I just think it’s wrong,” Evans said.
