Poor little rich kid....had to move back in with your parents at MacGregor Downs.
Well if that doesn't garner you any sympathy from the hip trendy music scensters of Raleigh and The Independent, what will?
Until the subject of crime on Hillsborough St. is addressed, none of this revitalization will matter.
The University Park homeowner's association should start by policing their own. The RPD should make a better effort at policing crime in this area.
There are a number of multiple occupant dwellings on Brooks Ave., Vanderbilt Ave., Clark Avenue, Pogue St., Horne St., Chamberlain St., Logan Ct., Hope St. and especially Enterprise St. and Maiden Ln. where tenants with criminal records (robbery, assault, drug possession/dealing, etc.) are known to reside.
I find it difficult to believe that the owners and/or management of these properties are not held to a stricter policy of weeding out the bad element from their community. One can't walk down Hillsborough St. without a)being approached by a panhandler, b)asked to buy drugs, c)accosted and/or robbed by some thug(s); add to this the fact that the police aren't equipped to better serve the community with respect to these problems.
