I am so sick and tired of lazy neighbors that don't give a hoot about anyone else living around them. You know the type. The ones that are known as "THE" troublemakers of the neighborhood. They make noise, they don't move their lawn, they park on their front lawn, litter in neighbor's yards, never rake up their leaves in the fall, honk their horns and bang on doors at all hours of the day and night. Absolutely no regard for others' property values or right to the reasonable quiet enjoyment of their homes. The entire neighborhood would love for these people to move and we all hope they do sometime soon. There are always an array of different cars parked there, along with numerous different individuals residing there. You can't help but notice it as they all make so much racket you can't help but look out the window to see who is screaming bloody murder. So fed up with these people. This is in the Helm Rd. area. There's no end to the nightmare of living near these individuals. They even shout at people in the street on occasion, mouthing off as if they want to start a fight with passersby. Young, lazy punk neighbors ruining the neighborhood. So sad.

That should read they don't MOW their lawn, not move their lawn.

I have no problem about people not mowing their lawns on a regular basis, or parking their own cars on their yards. It's THEIR yard.
I do have a problem with people who like to start fights, want to yell & curse at people just b/c they're walking down the street or out in their own yard.
There was a woman who was yelling at a lady on Good Friday of all days, insisting that she was not on her own property, when indeed she was, and who had come onto her property, basically trespassing & raking up stuff & leaving it on her neighbor's compost pile.
The bad thing about it is, that same woman, who had been trespassing, was calling her own neighbor a "nut" and insisting that she had to call a Licensed surveyor just to walk in her own yard!
And the mean woman who was yelling at her, had put up a fence, that the neighbor was not sure was put on their property & not encroaching on hers! That was on Birchwood Road. The bad thing is, right next door to her, the neighbor likes to start fires in his firepit, and all that stuff she threw onto the picked upon neighbor's compost pile, could have easily caught fire, as it was in the end of that horrible draught we were all having and it was getting breezy when the next door neighbor went to start a fire!

And I'm not so concerned with someone's "property values" as I am with someone's safety!

The economy has gone down the tubes, wake up & smell the coffee lady! Even if you made your property look spectacular, the chances are, you won't get the money for it, you'd want to.

And all these people who are so snotty, & judgemental about someone not mowing their lawns on a daily or weekly basis, are nothing more than a pain in the neck!
So what someone doesn't want to mow their lawn to a short little 1/3 inch high height. That doesn't make your lawn healthy either, when it starts to get so hot & dry! The lawn starts to die then.
what's very disturbing is people who think they have a right to violate someone's basic civil rights, their freedom, their life, and their pursuit of happiness.
I'm not so concerned with someone playing music or parking their own cars in their own yards. I'm concerned about verbally abusive control freaks who want to direct everyone else's lives.

yeah, if someone's treating you badly, & threatening you & your safety, then I can well accept your position, but to want to force someone out of their OWN home, just because they do NOT behave just like YOU do, is not a right of yours!

Speaking of mowing lawns. Today is Sunday & someone started mowing their lawn at 8 o'clock in the Morning!

How inconsiderate. People are so damn inconsiderate in Sunset Estates.

It is against city ordinance to park on front lawns. Check out the ordinances sometime. It is also against ordinances to let you grass grow taller than 9", never mind to 2' tall. A fire marshall can issue a citation as not only is this a fire hazard to EVERYONE'S property, it is also unsightly and attracts vermin.
Property values are important now more than ever and living near lazy slobs that bring other's prop values down further is unacceptable. If you choose to live in a decent neighborhood where everyone takes pride in their property then you have an obligation as a part of that neighborhood to uphold similar expectations. If you are simply too lazy to comply, move some place else where people don't care if they live in a blighted dump.

You sound like the perfect neighbor for those described above. You guys should live next to each other. The rest of us don't want to live near people like you that are too lazy to take care of your property. Behaving like a COURTEOUS person/neighbor is NOT an unreasonable request of anyone.

I AM a courteous neighbors but our neighbors aren't! They scream at you, threaten you, swear at you, violate countless ordinances, local & state laws & yet they think THEY are in the right!
I'm not talking about letting grass go up to 2 feet tall. I'm stating it doesn't concern me if someone does not mow their lawn every single week!
You think of how high the gas prices are, and that people are working many jobs just to make ends meet.
And to be honest, even if the lawns look perfect, like they're something off a golf course, the county of Hartford is one of the most dangerous areas in New England!
Hartford has massive crimes, East Hartford is getting equally as bad, Manchester is turning into a slum also, even Wethersfield, I hear, is getting not so safe.
SO.. instead of you judgemental people worrying about what something "looks" like, why don't you just worry about people's safety & their lives?

Or is that asking "too much"???? ROTFLOL

Seeing how abusive and aggressive people are in Hartford County now, my guess is yes, it "is" asking too much!
Pfft! Same ole, same ole!
I see now why the property values are dropping like stones in Hartford County.
People are WAY too hostile here, period!

If you're living on Silver Lane on the E.H. end you should move. That place is a pit now.

What you are not seemingly understanding is that when people allow their properties to become rundown and otherwise blighted, that spreads like wildfire and people start moving out and in turn that attracts the lowlifes into that once night neighborhood, who further care less and less about others and properties. Then the drug dealers and/or gangs start moving in. That decreases safety and the values of homes even more. Can't you see that it is all connected? Why do you think people start neighborhood watches and home associations? They want to protect themselves and the value of their properties dear.

Sounds like your neighbor that started a fire during the red flag time is just an idiot.

When we had that long draught, that was a red flag time?
meaning, people were not allowed to start fires?

You see, people are "so" concerned about their neighborhood "image" & the "appearance" of their property, but so not concerned whatsoever, about people's safety or their lives.
People are constantly violating the town's ordinances, the state laws, federal laws, you name it, in the north end of East Hartford, off of Silver Lane.
And the police just look the other way, even though there's dozens of signs stating there's a Police Watch in that area!
What are they watching anyway, people breaking the laws?
We even saw an Animal Control Officer in E. Hartford, running a stop sign off a very busy street, that people often walk down, that doesn't have any sidewalks to it!
Talk about dangerous!
But that's East Hartford for ya, now! They's so "concerned" with visual blight, but couldn't give a damn about people's lives or their safety!

That basically violates the U.S. Constitution!

And it doesn't matter really if there are drug dealers or not in our area. You can be a very dangerous neighbor, even if you don't even use drugs if you have no concern whatsoever for others' safety.
And that's exactly what our neighbors are like! They don't care less about how many danger they put other people's lives in, not to mention their own neighbors!
It IS a bad scene off of Silver Lane, in East Hartford. That area has gone down the tubes!

If you start documenting everything that supports your concerns and start a petition or even take it to a TV channel, then maybe you'll start getting some results. The longer people sit idle and do nothing, the less chance anything will change. Change requires work. If you go in with a defeatist attitude, that you are already beaten no matter what you do so why bother, then you will just be another complacent person who doesn't step up and say ENOUGH. The person that is concerned about their neighborhood is right. If people have no pride in their property they will most certainly do not care about anyone around them. But if you stand up to them and hold them accountable, then you let them know that you are not screwing around. It's not about trying to run someone else's life. It's about running YOUR OWN life and doing what you need to do and living the way any decent person deserves to live. So you can sit and do nothing, or you can speak up and do whatever it takes to bring about change, or you can move. Those are your choices.

Sir, or ma'am. We've already called a number of local TV stations about a number of dangerous situations, and they did not want to do a thing about it.
Really! Even that station, Channel 8 news, which "claims" to have your back. They don't!

This state is now just filled with liars & corrupt, unethical people, sadly enough!
Even if you call the state legislators, like the Attorney General's Office or the Governor's office, they'll "claim" they have NO jurisdiction over the towns or municipalities! There was a receptionist for the State Attorney's office, who actually stated we were making "allegations" when we told them of public officials doing things that were putting the public at risk!

They simply refuse to listen to you, even though, they are supposed to be working "for" the public, not against the public!

So I want to know, WHERE does one actually call or write to, to actually get some action taken? Action taken against all these people who are basically putting other people's safety & their lives in jeopardy?
Or do we just keep praying to the Good Lord, that someone will do something, because we've wasted countless hours of our time, for nothing, trying to get the local TV, public officials, even the state officials to do something, and they just keep refusing to do anything to help the general public!

Now I see why they called Connecticut Corrupticut! It's so appropriate given today's current events!

Sad, but true!

Want to hear more Actual Facts about how unsafe, creepy & corrupt the Public Officials are, in the "safe" town of East Hartford?

There was a K-9 cop# 37 who drove up to Veteran's Memorial Park & deliberately let his huge German Shepherd K9 dog loose out of the cop car with NO leash whatsoever only 30 feet away from a disabled person walking their puppy!

Then the cop let the K9 dog run loose all over the Veteran's Memorial Yard & even started throwing a ball for the dog, acting like he was in his own backyard!

The disabled person was terrified because, due to the fact that K9 dog was running totally loose, that German shepherd could have easily come after the disabled person & their dog & killed them both!

So someone tell me HOW is East Hartford to be considered a "nice" or even SAFE town when
K-9 cops think it's their "right" to let a huge K9 dog play totally off a leash in a public park???
Especially when a disabled person is walking their dog on a leash on 30 feet from a huge German Shepherd!

That's just police harassment & brutality IMHO!

So, let me get this straight......."Property Values" are MORE important than people's LIVES or their SAFETY & well-being???
Hmmm.... Interesting!

So tell me "RespectfulNeighbor" , are you one of those people who want their lawns looking Perfect, but like to run STOP signs, in a residential neighborhood, even when you see pedestrians close by?

Sounds like it could be possible.

What is so "courteous' or 'respectful' about neighbors who constantly like to put other peole's health at risk by insisting on using a lawn service who states on their trucks they are ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY yet you always see a little yellow sign which warns you to NOT walk on their grass if you're an adult, a child, or a pet??
My inclination is you are the lazy people who use these lawn cares services! All you need to do
is fertilize your lawn with some healthy lawn products, not TOXIC ones...
Everytime we walk our pet near those types of lawns covered by toxic chemicals, the next day we find our pet has vomitted up something strange inside our home!
I would NOT recommend the company TurfMasters if you have pets or kids myself.

You people should talk directly with your neighbors like civil human beings rather than put all business on a forum which will get you zero results. If you find yourself to spineless to do that than I suggest you move. Just because you own a property in the area doesn't make you the ambassador for the whole neighborhood I agree with you some people do not hold themselves to the highest of standards but that doesn't give you the right to badmouth them in secret. You should buy a condo if you want input as to the state of your neighbors property.

You are the one who is 'spineless' stupid & irresponsible. Obvious these bad neighbors people are complaining about don't have much regard for the public's safety, otherwise they'd not use toxic chemicals on their lawns!

Environmentally friendly the town of East Hartford is not!

Remember how the only fish that cud survive in the CT river was the carp??
