Dracut Resident-Tax Payer

Dracut, MA

#1 Jul 10, 2012
I helped my neighbor's friend move into the Elderly Housing today on Mammoth Road. I was appalled by the condition of the units there, although, some of the Resients (on their own), take a lot of pride in their units. I am quite familiar with what needs to bo done to maintain a resident, and it all comes back to WHO is in charge. All the money that went into the recent landscaping for the Elderly Housing, and the way the grass looked, or should I say (maintained), was VERY POOR. Even some of the elderly ladies commented on this while I was there. The Painting inside the units, the poor repairs that was done to the unit walls areas, and I could go on and on. Being a Dracut Tax Payer, I can comment, and my heart goes out to the elederly. Again, who is in charge of the maintenance there?? They do a poor job, and this should be looked into. For the age of this complex, it is in Very Poor condition. A CHANGE IS NEEDED!
I think I speak for many on this issue.

I live at 971 Mammoth road. It is mostly Federal and State Funded.The director who is salaried, does a great job with what she is given to work with. There is a board, which meets once a month. I am sure you can find out how much of your Dracut property tax goes to up keep here, not sure any of it does.Most of it is done by grant. what is not seen here on a drive through or a move in, is the sense of neighborhood. I have been here 2 years. Neighbors care about one another, and if you are pleasant, they are happy to be friendly. I speak for 85% because I don't know everybody. Of course you have to deal with the fact that they are seniors and not easily open to change. Things like parking and laundry get a little out of hand, but otherwise it is peaceful. just a point about landscaping, it rained most of April and may and into June. makes it hard to lay grass and move soil. I'm sure the board won't pay for work not done. Please do not judge a community by its cover, a can of paint costs 20.00 - I'll repaint and be thankful for nice, peaceful neighbors.
