Duquesne project will provide housing for elderly, handicapped - KOAM TV 7

Duquesne project will provide housing for elderly, handicapped, etc

Updated:

Some residents in Duquesne, Missouri have been meeting with city officials there over concerns of a new housing project.

The new apartment complex will be for the elderly, handicapped, and those on fixed income.

The project is called Katherine Estates.  It's on Katherine Road in Duquesne near 20th Street.  It involves about four acres of land.  The land was rezoned for the project shortly after the May 2011 tornado.  There will be apartments here, holding 48 units.  Construction is set to begin anytime, once permits are issued.

Duquesne Mayor Denny White says he's heard some opposition to the project.

"No one is going to agree 100% on anything, but I think this is a good project for Duquesne and I think that in the long run, after they're built, and they see how it all goes, that a lot of people opposed are going to say 'it looks OK to me'", says Mayor White.

Duquesne has no property tax, only sales tax.

The city's mayor believes a new housing complex will still help the local economy.
