Seems like a bad idea to me putting low income housing right next to nice neighborhoods in the first place. Unless you are going to double the police force patrolling the nice neighborhood. I had my car broken into twice when I lived in Charlotte, and I was in Dilworth. My apartments got hit like 10-15 times. Was within walking distance of Moosehead's and Selwyn Pub.
Friend of mine had her truck stolen right out of her driveway. She lived just on the other side of Park Road. It was a crack dealer who lived within a mile of her who just needed transportation for a few days.
I don't think objecting to low income housing being put up next to you makes you a bad person. Or out of touch, either. Your property value goes down for a reason.
