Millerites - The new owners of Woodlake Village Apartments are converting the complex into a "Low Income only" development. Under the new rules, the greedy poverty-pimp owners will kick out all current Woodlake Village residents who have an income that "exceeds the threshold to live at the apartments." Translation: they are kicking out the folks who make "too much money" in order to make room for more destitute people so the owners can capitalize on government guaranteed, section 8 rent payments. This move will concentrate poverty in a remote area of Miller which is not walkable and has limited access to any public amenities or jobs. Studies have shown that this type of hyper concentration of poverty leads to hopelessness and despair which results in higher crime rates.
