But a woman who lives there said when the sun sets there are constant parties, street racing and in the morning there is trash left all over the place. That’s just a few of the issues.
Local 4 reported on this issue in 2017 as well. Residents in the area said that the activity at night impacted their quality of life. One resident said he was looking for a new place to live.
A resident that spoke with Local 4 recently said she believes police have to step in.
“You have to do something. We are begging you to start showing a presence in this area,” Ms. Taylor said.
“Now we’re scared to go outside,” Ms. Taylor said. “Guns are a problem. It’s scary. I’m ready to move.”
She said she saw a shootout right outside the window of her condo.
“Enough is enough. It just has to stop,” she said.
She said there are parties, drug use, alcohol use and street racing on Atwater Street. She said up the road there was a driver who did doughnuts around a police SUV.
”We have to get out there. We have to address these issues,” White said.
