Huber use to be a not so bad place to live. We have always had punk kids and little problems here and there, but thanks to RTA and The City Of Dayton, its becoming a dangerous place to live. Remember how nice Trotwood was years ago. Before RTA shipped all the little gang bangers to the mall. Dayton knocked down some of it's worst low income housing projects. Some of those residents are or have freinds and family that are gun carrying, dope dealing thugs. Guess where they are living now and moving to everyday. Huber Heights. Yes Englewood, Centerville to name a few are getting them as well.

Reports like this:" HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN)- Huber Heights police responded to several reports of shooting at the Glenburn Green Co-Op, 4561 Bufort Boulevard Sunday evening, but found no victim or suspects." Give it time, Huber will soon be another Dayton. It's a shame we open the flood gates for these thugs to live in our community.

But hey, this is the message they send out these days. You don't need to work, the taxpayer will take care of you. You can live in a nice suburb and not have to work. You can sell your crack out of the apartment we pay for and have shoot outs in our communites. It use to be you worked to get out of low income housing, so you could get a job and move to a nice place. Not anymore, its sad but true.

You hit the nail on the head. The problem is, we have to share the burden with other cities in the county. The only think left to do, is move to the country. I miss the ole Huber.

In my neighborhood, I have tried to get people interested in cleaning up the trash and litter. People just throw their bottles, food bags and whatever down where they finish them. Many don't even use garbage cans for their trash, they just set them out on the patios for the rats to feast on. Young children run the streets unsupervised screaming and yelling, running into the street, into other peoples yards.

I used to live in what was then a new housing area, and it was pretty safe. Then I unfortunately had to move to Glenburn Green, this was in the 80s and even then I once heard someone shooting a gun. That area has always been known in circles as a place to get your drugs. I don't agree with the poster who says there are no college opportunites. I found that the more poor you are, the better your chances of getting a federal Pell Grant to pay for all your tuition, books, and even room and board if you're attending away from home. There is no excuse for someone poverty level to say they can't go to college. I used to be on a Pell Grant but since I got married they say we make too much. Part of the trouble is the lazy culture. Parents don't raise their kids right, teens don't want to do anything but play games and text each other and get tattoos and their parents do nothing to teach them any better. Kids are proud to look like they are ghetto gangsters, and take welfare. That dumb mentality spreads to Huber and every other suburb that used to be nice. Want a place with great insurance, guaranteed pay, and free college? Try the military. I know, that would mean actually getting up before noon...

To former Huber native. You are so right. Especially where parents are concerned. I have lived in Huber for over twenty years. I have noticed that over the past 10 years, there has been a decline in the appearance of certain neighborhoods (trash, furniture on the curb, lawn furniture left in yards even in the winter). In the past six months, I too have heard gunfire and there is a concern that vicious dogs are not adequately secured.

Posters who are concerned with the caliber of people now inhabiting Huber Heights, please continue to post comments on this topic so I can read other opinions about the many negative things that are occurring around the neighborhoods that such as crime, litter, children running amuk unsupervised and starting trouble in their neighborhoods and at school. Especially the trash, broken glass, cans thrown out windows etc. Any suggestions or ideas how citizens can organize to address these problems on their own or with others.

I'm a resident of glenburn green. It wasn't by choice I moved here. After my divorce I found myself unskilled with no prospects. Most residents here are single mothers doing the best they can. There are drugs galore out here. I've been stopped in the street and asked if I want to buy crack!! It's sad but true. The police though assume everyone who lives here is either using or selling drugs and they intimidate everyone who lives here. I'm tired of being afraid in my own home but as I's not by choice I live here.

I have lived in HH for many years. It used to be a place where responsible and hard working people could afford a decent home.
Now due to many factors (including the RTA) this has turned in to a "trashy" area. I have never seen that much trash in this area.
The city is not doing much either to make sure that some of "these people" take better care of their rentals.

I left Ohio a long time ago. I think the whole state has gone down the tubes.I got to California and thought things were pretty good,boy was I dumb. This place is overrun with gangbangers and dope dealers.

Now I think the whole country has gone down the tubes,not much can be done about it.China owns it.

RTA now has the green light to turn Beavercreek into a ghetto, another area that will be a slum in 5 years.

What does this have to do with Huber?

I grew up in Huber and I have family that still lives there. I think the northern part of the city is decent but where I grew up in southern Huber is not safe and home prices have plummented. I feel bad for the 90% of decent people who live there.

The city leaders here don't give two shitskis about anything or anybody south of Chambersburg Road. Agreed!

I moved to Huber Heights 12yrs ago and it was nice and safe! Now all I see is trash I in the streets,and the people who lives in the homes won't even go out and pick up the trash that has been thrown in front of their property! I moved from one dump(trotwood) to this dump,Huber Heights! I pay high property taxes,and if the city of Huber Heights can't restore back to how it used to be,I'm selling,and buying another home else where,where people care about their community! I am a woman of color,and I am shocked of the riff-raff that's out here.Stop RAT from coming out here,and whatever else the problem is! I have worked too hard to have to live like this,and paying for non-workers to be allowed to just come out here and tear up our neighborhood!!

Glenburn Green isn't as bad as it used to be. You might hear some arguments outside and, yes, the litter is bad sometimes, but now that Slammers Bar is gone, it's much quieter here. They also added a security guard on grounds. It is nowhere near being as dangerous as Trotwood or the Downtown area. The Wal-Mart parking lot on Brandt is actually more dangerous than Glenburn Green is now. They've done a pretty good job of getting rid of the trouble makers.
The litter problem is pretty much a national phenomenon now in my opinion. I see it like that in most areas. There is an apartment complex behind Glenburn Green that has some trouble makers but the residents in Glenburn Green are pretty normal now. It wasn't always like that though. The Destiny Christian Center that replaced the bar has a lot of security cameras all over their parking lot covering a lot of ground too. I'm sure they have some inside as well. That doesn't help as much with the other apt complex though.
Most of the trouble makers now in the Huber area hang out in the Dollar General parking lot, but even that's pretty rare.
