Gregory's Church, Strycker's Bay agreed with the Puerto Rican Citizens' Housing Committee that the WSURA should designate 30 percent of new units for low-income families, that new construction should cause minimal neighborhood disruption, and that the city should make a greater commitment to rehabilitating existing housing for working class residents.
The WSURA plan had no provision to renovate salvageable, abandoned buildings for tenants living in inferior housing.
