KINGSTON – The Kingston Housing Authority has been granted a 32-year payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement by the city’s common council to modernize the apartments at the Stuyvesant Apartments.
It will be the first time in decades that the homes have been upgraded, noted Alderman Tony Davis at Tuesday night’s council session.
“I think it’s important and prudent that the city, we assist as much as we can in regard to these residents – these constituents – having a good environment to go home to,” he said. “If we don’t do this PILOT, these apartments are just going to deteriorate even more.”
A number of residents of the complex attended the council session and urged the approval of the PILOT agreement.
