Residents of a southwest side neighborhood took one last stand at Monday’s Lafayette City Council meeting, hoping to block a Habitat for Humanity subdivision.

Three women spoke in opposition – with one saying a house slated to be torn down belonged to her family in the past, while the other two focused on fire safety concerns that Lafayette Fire Chief Richard Doyle says aren’t a problem.

One of the detractors, Ann Miller, says she’s also concerned about the people who live in the houses.
