This is a market-based solution. … [I]f we don’t get the anticipated number, then we’ll see if it’s due to market conditions or to discrimination. We just want to give everybody a fair shake.”

Millus said that he would attend a Jan. 9 town meeting to detail the agreement for residents and to answer their questions. “People have a right to complain,” he said. “But they don’t have the right to make up their own facts. There has been a lot of misinformation, and we will clear that up in January.”

No time or site for the meeting has been determined.
