The troubled MacArthur Park Apartments has been given a green light to re-open… and may soon be allowed to rent to Section 8 public housing tenants.
The city declared the apartments off-limits because of hundreds of building code violations.
But the State Journal-Register reports that after months of work, the violations have been corrected and the complex has been recertified for occupancy.
An agreement with the city also clears the way for MacArthur Park’s owners to resume accepting public housing vouchers.
But business and resident groups along MacArthur Boulevard are urging a cautious approach to make sure the problems don’t return.
