With all the hooligans around that area of town any improvement will be torn down in a week those kids don't worry about how their area looks as long as they can bump their trunks until 4 a.m. and shoot at anyone who they want to. Here soon it will be the Hatfield's and McCoy's between Eastgreen and Century City. First thing on the list should be to force the slumlord owners to clean up their residency's there. Half the units going are to illegals and the other half are going to wanna-be pushers, its the new short north around there complete with a waiting line at the liquor store.

The city has to start somewhere. I do know Century City has been cleaning up and even hiring off duty police officers. I just don't think we can afford to just shrug and write it off. We can be part of the solution or part of the problem.

I HAVE LIVED IN THAT AREA FOR 15 YRS AND SEEN IT DESTROYED. NO ONE EVER GOES OUT FOR TICK OR TREAT ANYMORE. AS I SEE IT THE ONLY WAY TO SOLVE THIS IS TO DESTROY THE APTS AND DUPLEX UNITS AND MAKE A LAW NO MOVING BASKETBALL COURTS IN THE AREA . THE REASON FOR THIS IS SOMETIMES YOU CAN NOT EVEN DRIVE DOWN YOU STREET. THERE ALSO HAS BEEN MANY TIMES THAT PIT BULLS ARE IN THE AREA. SO UNTIL THOSE PROBLEMS ARE ADDRESSED
NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE. MAYBE THE CITY CAN GET A GRANT OR LOAN FROM THE FEDS SO THEY CAN BUY UP ALL APTS AND LEVEL THEM. THIS IS REALITY WINDOW DRESSING WILL NOT HELP.

So I live in a house in the Eastgreen area. I've watched the neighborhood go down fast. Everyone I know has moved out to get away from the lesser-breeds. You ask anyone about Reynoldsburg, they immediately think of "the hood". The MAIN problem with the city is the allowance of low-income housing. Post Woods was known to be the ghetto of Reynoldsburg, but our area has quickly taken that title. My wife and I plan to move next year just because we don't want to raise our child in the hood.
Let Columbus house the low-incomees.

I think it is great idea(better late than never) to change the Brice-Livingston area for the better. I feel bad everytime i drive thru that area and think of the good old days when i shopped at Big Bear and ate at McDonalds, White Castle, Pizza Hut,or Ryan's. Several years back when my son and his wife lived at Century City he told his Mother and myself there were so many drugs being bought and sold that it was scary and they moved. I would like to thank whoever had the idea to clean up that area. sincerely, Boyce Baker

I live in Eastgreen. I have for several years now. Problem is when the "ghetto" apartments of Greenbriar closed the renatla company allowed the section 8 people to reside in our complex. That did not go over very well, theft went up, crime, drugs, prostitution, you name it all went up. Thanksfully someone stepped up and got them out of Eastgreen only to find out they went to Century City. I agree that both complexes should be shut down, knocked down, whatever but whatever the city decides to do probably won't do any good until we get rid of the people causing the area to look, feel and seem like the "hood". I love Reynoldsburg the city but most of the relocated residents from Columbus have really brought the city down and fast.

Reynoldsburg also needs to confer with Columbus and get the number of bars in the immediate area reduced. No one will come around when there are fights, robberies and shootings close by. I've lived in this area for about 30 years and in the last 10, every time a business has closed, a bar or carryout has opened. The city planners on both sides are dropping the ball. Don't let bars concentrate one area of there will be trouble! Also, the number and type of businesses in that area that would draw in consumers has dropped significantly. Give some incentives to get legitimate businesses (and I don't mean another pawn shop or discount store) to come into the area.

The residents of Reynoldsburg simply need to attend council meetings to let the administration know how serious you are about these problems.
