To Skid Row,
The below correspondence is some of the brand-new structuring going on at City Hall.
This is what will ultimately replace the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) which was responsible for funding a substantial amount of funds for low-income housing in and around Skid Row.
Since the CRA is no longer available, please get used to these new entities.
If you have ANY issues, I highly suggest that you do feel free to contact them and “speak on it”!!!!!!!
Please feel free to use my name if there are ANY problems and let them know that I sent you!!!!!
With Love,
General Jeff
