Renters say they've been unfairly evicted

August 18, 2015
At first glance, Green Meadows appears to be a picture-perfect apartment complex.
     The exterior of the homes are clean and well-maintained, the lawns are immaculate and the parking lot and walking paths are spotless. The common areas of the 36-unit affordable-housing complex are quiet and peaceful.
     But simmering beneath the calm is a maelstrom. Residents say their lives have been upended by a discriminatory application of rules that targets single women, many of them poor minorities who receive rent subsidies. About 20 percent of the tenants have had their leases terminated this year or currently face eviction.
