Hanford City Council voted 3-2 Tuesday night in favor of approving a bond that allows the Northstar Courts affordable-housing project to move forward as scheduled.

The controversial project, planned for a vacant lot next to Fargo Crossing Shopping Center, is the subject of ongoing debate between many residents of the area and local public officials.

Opponents of Northstar Courts development have repeatedly stated publicly they are not opposed to affordable housing in Kings County or Hanford. They object to the location, they say.
