Residents of the Pines of Perinton affordable housing complex are sounding the alarm on unsanitary living conditions.
New York State Sen. Samra Brouk and Assemblymember Jennifer Lunsford toured the units on Monday, February 20 after residents’ complaints about rodents, water damage, and mold have reportedly gone ignored, according to 13Wham News.
Since 2013, the Town of Perinton has received 34 complaints regarding the housing complex. The town is encouraging Pines of Perinton residents to report code violations, as well as announcing fines for management if they fail to share a plan to bring units up to code.
WinnResidential, a Boston-based company that bought the housing complex in 2019, says they are planning $50 million in renovations for the apartments.
