Home owners and the few good rentals of southeast Danville are concerned about Fair Oaks in their neighborhood. Well, wake up people. Unless you have been in a coma or frozen for the past five years or more, these kinds of people and many worse are here.
We now get to spring up with loud music, loud cars, screaming and foul-mouthed kids and so-called adults. Jay walking, trespassing, property damage, burglary and, of course, the parties that last until 2 a.m.
Then comes summer. The same kind of people who can’t afford to take care of or clean up their rentals or homes can afford expensive grills, parties and pools. People who can’t afford a mortgage can afford new vehicles, dirt bikes up and down alleys, several dogs and way too many children.
There are a few — very few — of us older people who were brought up to be responsible and take pride in our homes, a thing of the past now.
Security cameras don’t cover all the crimes outside the property line, like people, especially in the rentals, who allow the dogs to urinate on the side of your house and all over a fence.
Why don’t good, caring people move? We put every dime we had into our home. We had no way to know how bad southeast Danville would get. I won’t get half of what was put into my home.
My family and people I know won’t even come to Griffin Street anymore or southeast Danville at all. The city wouldn’t need money if they would enforce all the code violations (not just tall grass.)
