Milton Continued from page 1 rent subsidies. According to Pat Batchelor, vice president of F&S Property Management, $22,250 is the me- dian income in Milton. A market research study, she said, indicated that there is a strong need for two- bedroom apartments in the area. "There are no moderate income apartments," she said. "There's just no affordable place for the young people to move." "We considered building three to four bedroom units, but we found Milton needs two-bedroom units," said Speakman. Addition- ally, she said, cost was a factor. Constructing 1,100 square foot apartments would have raised the total cost of the project by approx- imately $425,000. At both the July Milton Town Council meeting and the Planning and Zoning Commission hearing, residents expressed concern about having low-income housing erect- ed in Milton.

Doggedly, however, residents and commission members alike voiced opinions during the hear- ing that alluded to a fear of a low- income housing development in Milton. One resident noted that the complex could create traffic congestion, and wondered if it would create some water and sew- er problems.

Dean Sherman, planning com- mission member, voiced what many had implied at both meet- ings. "It all comes down to some- body figuring out how to manage these things so they won't turn in- to slums," he said.

Ten percent of the apartments will be designed for handicapped adaptability. The plans call for each unit hav- ing individual entrances to be maintained by the occupants. The Nanticoke buildings will have bricked lower halves with quality vinyl siding on the upper portions. There will also be laundry facili- ties, a playground and a storm run-off drainage pond.
