Plans to build a home for disabled war vet -- -- a roadblock today.
Homes for our troops was supposed to start construction on a specially designed house in Evans Georgia force sergeant first class Sean.
-- But after first approving the what level home knob -- property owners decide to reverse course.
They -- the current plans for the home art who small and do not fit in with the community joining us right now the fat.
Founder of homes for heroes John Gonzales John.
You submitted the -- and the neighborhood -- what happened.
Well they they decided to go against what's on their website -- in -- documents that the home needs to be 2700.
Home -- troops it is really disappointed about this we -- blind sided.
We we've worked in more than thirty states and this home as part of our new campaign.
Called 100 more homes for our troops we've taken on.
More than 100 of -- most severely wounded veterans to put into homes like this story and I just think this is sad we we hope that we can work through it.
When they're telling us that the home doesn't meet their standards and doesn't fit and -- contradicting what did documents say in on June 2 right.
Homeowners association president gave us the approval.
It just raises a lot of questions if they just try to block this totally.
Right and John you've got the you've got the email right in front of -- right.
I do there is right there right -- and and it says the drug ring is approved right -- this is June 2 right okay John here's what the neighborhood association knob hill properties owners associations as they say they're great family.
We have no qualms -- -- the problem is.
That's that streaked down there has 5000 square foot homes all the way up and down the street there it just doesn't fit that's the whole issue.
So do you buy that you know they might have in their -- covenants that you -- have a 12700.
Square foot house but they say.
It all the other houses are 5000 square feet.
It sounds like they don't want -- impact their property values.
Well that's what this saying but I I know that not all the homes in -- a 5000 square feet.
And for the homeowners that a worrying about their value.
Maybe they should have bought land in a subdivision with a covenants with -- 5000 square foot homes what about what they got it just doesn't make sense so where do you stand right now I mean where where is the family.
While it I I had a very unfortunate conversation.
-- -- just returned from out of the country her dad and just passed away I had to break this news to.
You know sergeant kittens was on his third four.
He has a wife and four children he's been in the military spent most of his adult life there.
Eighteen plus years.
I told against family that will build their home either way.
We've again we've taken on more than a hundred families we won't let this deter us at all and I guess even if they reversed the decision.
-- -- -- we'll need to decide if they'd be comfortable living there.
You know with with that neighborhood all right John good solves them from homes for our heroes have for our troops we thank you very much for -- story.
Well thanks they have ethnic intimidation and anyone who knows that that's what this -- with the it's unavoidable program that you spearheading thanks so much we were.
