Low-Income Housing Project Coming To Moline

A new low income housing project is coming to Moline. This week the Moline City Council voted five to three to approve almost 400 apartments to be built just south of John Deere Road between 60th and 70th Street.

Pedcor is the company behind the project. It could bring in almost 200 families. There have been concerns about bringing in such a large number of people and the impact it would have on community resources. The perception of low-income tenents also raised concerns.

Pedcor's Senior Vice President says the project will have an on-site manager and perform criminal background checks on all tenants. A similar project by the same company was voted down in Davenport earlier this year after residents shared their concerns with city council members.
