Does anyone in Gates other than myself and my neighbors have problems with noisey, unconsiderate neighbors? I live off lyell rd, I take care of my yard, my kids are not noisey or disrespectful as is the majority of the people who live on my street. In the past few years my street has gone thru changes including families moving in with more that one family unit living in one house, houses looking abandoned while people do live in them, unkempt yards, unlicensed cars in driveways and on lawns....and teens drving aimlessly to and fro. Not to mention the drug house on the street. Repeated calls to police and nothing changes. Will it have to take an accident or a shooting before Gates finally realizes there is a problem?

I suggest you move if you can afford to do that. Without multiple neighbors standing up with you complaining, one voice usually won't be heard or listened to. I tried fighting a similar battle a few years ago and I was outnumbered. Once the bad neighbors realize you don't want them there they will work hard to cause you to leave. I know it isn't right or fair that the people not causing problems have to do all of the work to get something changed or have to move when change doesn't happen. And I realize we can't move every time we have a neighbor issue. But when you can't get things changed it's either accept things for as they are or move. Life is just too short to be miserable and fight battles every day. Move where you'll be happier. That's my advice.
