October 27, 2011, 4:52 PM
SIOUX FALLS, SD -
The developers of six multifamily housing developments in Sioux Falls have agreed to modify the complexes as part of a settlement with the federal government in a housing discrimination lawsuit.
The Justice Department on Thursday announced that Equity Homes Inc, PBR LLC, BBR LLC and Shane Hartung have agreed to remodel the developments to make them accessible to people with disabilities and pay $41,500 in damages.
The government alleged in the lawsuit that the developers violated the Fair Housing Act by designing and building units that didn't accommodate the special needs of elderly and disabled tenants.
The six complexes involved are East and West Briar Estates, Kensington Apartments, Beverly Gardens Apartments, Sertoma Hills Apartments and Villas.
