The Kanawha County Commission voted unanimously Thursday night to oppose a low-income housing proposal.

Earlier in March residents from the Knollwood community showed up at the Kanawha County planning commission meeting to oppose a proposal that would build a low-income senior housing in their neighborhood.

On Thursday night Kanawha County commissioner Kent Carper said the commission voted unanimously to oppose the Zachary Garden complex.

They're also sending a representative to the next West Virginia Housing Development Fund meeting to voice their concerns, according to Carper.

Charleston Developer Doug Pauley has said that the area is the perfect are for a project like apartments and tenants would be retirees and undergo a background check.
