City Leaders in Orlando, Florida are touting the new development in the city's Parramore neighborhood as a hopeful indication for the area's future. Yet, many of the area's present residents are apparently excluded from that future. Even with affordable housing set-asides for individuals earning around $16,000 a year, only one Parramore resident has qualified to live in the new CityView Apartment complex because of a myriad of stringent requirements. Supporters of the redevelopment argue that the neighborhood needs to include higher quality housing and middle- and upper-income residents if it is to become a better community.
