The controversy towards the Auburn Village apartment complex came to end last night.

The McAllen city commissioners approved the 2.1 million dollar loan proposed by the housing authority in a 2 to 4 vote.

The controversy came after neighbors in the area of 23rd and Auburn Avenue, where the complex will be built, petitioned against it.

Nonetheless the next stages of this complex will be taking place in the next couple of months.

“It’s a two step process they have to go to what we call the planning and zoning office which is going to happen on March 18 and they’ll send it to the city commission and then the city commission votes on it.”

The 160 unit complex is looking to house low income individuals and families.
