The city council has pulled the plug on a housing project on Sioux City's near north side. The Siouxland Housing Development Corporation wanted to rehabilitate six row houses on Douglas Street and sell them to lower-income families. A $268,000 federal grant was earmarked for the project, but the developer was unable to come up with the rest of the money needed. The remaining grant money will be redirected toward a different project in that part of town.
