MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A utility termination notice has left hundreds of tenants at a Fox Meadows apartment complex scrambling, as they prepare for their utility cuts.

In less than a week, tenants living in Highland Hills apartments will have their utilities cut off, after Memphis Light Gas and Water served notice.

“It’s just plain untrue,” tenant Geraldine Beasley said. “They are wrong.”

Tenants say they discovered it this Saturday and have no idea why it is happening, leading to anger and confusion.

“I feel mad as hell,” Kawani Smith said. “I am very angry.”

Uncertainty over their future has left parents like Stephanie Murray reeling.

“It’s crazy because they haven’t informed anyone at all about the situation, anyone,” Murray said. “In a week, what can I do? In a week, when school starts and I have to do all this and a lot of people just pay their rent, what am I supposed to do? »

In the notice sent to tenants, MLGW did not provide any details of the decision, but said it would disconnect the main meter next Friday, which will likely shut down electricity and water services.

The utility company told them to contact their landlord for more questions. For these tenants, this is not enough.

“You are a multi-million dollar business. Are you so greedy that you would see hundreds of people thrown out? For what, a dollar? Beasley said.

Online records show that the apartment complex is managed by Multi-South Management Services. The WREG made several attempts to reach them but never heard back, which residents say is common.

“When we contact them, they never answer the phone, so we have to leave messages,” says a tenant named Tadarious.

Not only do tenants face the prospect of shutting down their utilities, but also deplorable living conditions. At Smith’s there is mold, rodents, plumbing issues and a host of other issues.

“You can get us all out of these houses and into something better, because you wouldn’t want to live in something like that,” Smith said.

“How would you feel if it was you in this situation?” said Murray.

For many, this place called home is all they have and could soon take it away from them.

“We need help at Highland Hills Apartments,” Smith said.

WREG has contacted MLGW, and they claim they have no information.

New Apartments and Rental Homes Coming to the Wilmington Intersection https://villasinflorence.com/new-apartments-and-rental-homes-coming-to-the-wilmington-intersection/ Fri, 05 Aug 2022 10:02:29 +0000 https://villasinflorence.com/new-apartments-and-rental-homes-coming-to-the-wilmington-intersection/

A massive development project to bring 570 rentals to 50 wooded acres near a busy Wilmington intersection is moving forward — with a few tweaks.

On Tuesday, the Wilmington City Council voted unanimously to approve the rezoning of the 50 acres of land at the northwest corner of S. 17th Street and Independence Boulevard.

The rezoning will allow Middleburg Communities, a Virginia-based construction and property management company, to move forward with plans to build a 290-unit apartment complex, 170 single-family rentals, 96 townhouses and seven duplexes on the site.

The proposed site under development is among more than 300 acres rezoned in 2013 by Wilmington City Council for the Barclay West development. This rezoning was intended to accommodate large-scale developments and included areas on the north and south sides of Independence Boulevard between S. 17th Street and Carolina Beach Road.

The company’s plans have changed since the project won unanimous approval from the Wilmington Planning Commission in June. Commission members encouraged developers to consider adding affordable housing to their plan – and they did.

Plans presented on Tuesday called for 15 one-bedroom apartments to be rented at 80% of the region’s median income for at least 10 years. The estimated rental rate for the most affordable apartments is $1,363 per month. The market rate for one-bedroom units is estimated to be around $1,705 in monthly rent.
