Townsend Towers and Harrison House Tenants Forced to Relocate

SYRACUSE, NY - Syracuse Housing Authority is working to relocate nearly 200 tenants from the Townsend Tower and the Harrison House. The complexes have a history of low vacancies, poor management, code violations, and crime. They have also accrued about 10 million dollars in unpaid mortgage expenses.

Syracuse Housing Authority said they are working with every person to “get what services or what assistance (they) need to make the relocation happen”.

Many tenants said the relocation could have been avoided if repairs and security were maintained over the years. Syracuse Housing Authority hopes each tenant will be moved out by this fall.
