Tenants at 3425 Gates Pl. in Norwood have had enough with the Morgan Group and the Major Capital Improvement program, also known as MCI.
Norwood News spoke with one of the tenants about what they’re going through. She mentioned that they were promised new appliances, like refrigerators, stoves, bathrooms, and kitchens, however this has not happened. Nonetheless, it appears that management is applying the cost of those undelivered appliances to receive benefits through the MCI program.
As a result tenants are being asked to pay an increase of $81.33 per room, yet now they are going on strike and refusing to pay. The Northwest Bronx Community & Clergy Coalition and Community Action for Safe Apartments are working with these tenants while their cases go to housing court.
