NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Safety is at the top of the list of concerns for residents of an 11-story apartment complex in North Little Rock.
A group of Hickory View tenants held a press conference on Saturday morning to voice their concerns to management and the public.
Organizers held a similar press conference last year, but say problems persist.
Problems include basic repairs needed, missing housing for tenants with disabilities, and security around entrances and exits.
The organizers of today’s press conference are concerned about the way federal money is being managed. They say they should be used to improve conditions at the 55-year-old complex.
“All I want them to do is put my building back as it was,” said Hattie Temple, a tenant at Hickory View. “They say they made improvements, but what did they improve? It’s even worse, they haven’t fixed the leak at the top of the building. If you are going to the basement right now, there is water in the basement.
