Wyndover tax exempt badly managed low income housing. Your tax dollars at work. "Sep 14, 10:26 p.m. — A man and woman were reportedly fighting in the 800 block of Diablo Avenue.

Ask ABAG and the city council, they say that we need more of this.

Does the Wyndovers bad reputation have anything to do with there tax exempt status,? It seems like if that's the only place in Novato crime takes place, what about Leafwood, Romar ct, and Elm Apts? Crime happens everywhere in Novato. Stop picking on the low income residents of the Wyndover Apts! From: Former Wyndover resident
