Personally I think he should have put up a high voltage wire fence and sprinkled rusty nails, broken glass and quarters dusted with rat poison around his property line.
Listen up you old idiot. I don't give a rat's what's inside that fence. I don't have kids and I don't want them in my yard either. But that fence is against regulations, the rest of aren't allowed to have a fence that comes that close to the sidewalk. I want the rules and regulations and approved plans for my neighborhood to be followed and to mean something, before it really does become a section 8 neighborhood. Next, people will have old cars in their yard, quit weedeating and own 1,000 stray cats if somebody doesn't stand up and make sure we are all following our rules.

I would understand if they were riding 4 wheelers in your yard or something, other than that who cares? Kids will be kids

I've seen your yard, not really that great anyway. According to you I thought it would be full of flora and fauna, a lush meticulous piece of paradise. What a letdown.

What the hell is wrong with you? The person didn't want the brats in his yard! It don't matter what they were doing! Didn't your parents teach you anything? If something don't belong to you: you don't touch it, you don't enter it, you don't eat it, you don't take it etc! Have some respect! It is a simple concept

That don't matter, what matters is it is his and he don't want the kids in it. It is a shame that people are more worried about this fence than the yard apes with loser parents

Embarrassing...self-righteous, entitled, judgmental,hateful posters on this thread. Such horrors to be told! How dare some kids in a neighborhood (imagine that!) Want to play on an empty lot or in the street sometimes. Gosh, that must mean they're nothing but criminals with the worst parents EVER! Call 911! Call the president! On the other hand, who gives a crap if he puts a fence up? It's a fence you insufferable snots, not a couch in the yard. Who do people think they are nowadays? You're all so worried about looking and feeling fancy,and moaning and whining that you forgot how to be people. SAD.

I'm a person, and I think it is sad a person has to fence their yard to keep trespassers out. In fact, I think everyone in the neighborhood should put up a zoo fence. Whose with me? I've always wanted to live in a gated community...

truly though.. it's about respecting people's property and things. Apparantly the parents haven't taught these kids respect, probably don't have respect themselves. Thats a big reason this world is in the shape it is in.. no respect.

I was reading through this thread about the rude kids and the fence in question. I have to agree that I don't enjoy kids trampling through my yard either. It isn't that I don't like kids, it's more like I don't have kids and that's my choice and I spend a lot of time and money to fix up the yard. That's like a pastime for me. I don't want kids breaking things, treading on my flowers, or getting hurt on my property. In addition, I really don't like the way the kids are allowed to play all in the circles either. It is dangerous for one thing and it has really worn down the grass and flowers down which makes those circles look awful. They were originally made to enhance the subdivision's look. One family even put up a basketball goal there in the second circle. It looks awful now.

Someone mentioned that it is in a good school district and those of us without kids should just suck it up. Well, I don't agree with that at all. I have just as much right to purchase in this subdivision as families with children do. I also have just as much right to ensure your kids stay off my property as you do to make sure I stay off yours.

As for the fence, I figure the fence is up and even though it seems clearly against the subdivision's rules and regulations, there isn't anything anyone can do about it. The planning commission as someone mentioned, is really a useless entity. They would just tell you to sue. I don't mind the fence, except that it does connect with the front of the house that is clearly not approved.

As for the fence

<quoted text>I'm all for kids having a good time in the outdoors, but when they become a liability, then it becomes a problem. What do you think is going to happen when one of these kids gets hit by a car? Their parents are going to sue the socks off of you! Kids taking over your property is no small matter. Maybe that sign out front of your place should say "Slow-headed Kids at Play". When someone complains about these kids they become a target and the wayward kids will do everything they can get by with to torment you. The best bet is to post your property and enforce it by reporting violations to the authorities. It will then get them involved and hopefully they can keep the kids off of your property.
Yay, Old Timer! You're my hero.

I believe it's time for a "block party".....I'll bring the keg if someone else does the organizing. Anyone know a band for hire?

I know a vacant lot where we can have the party. It is protected by a hideous fence that is bringing down the property values of our houses. She needs mental help. Her lot that is being "destroyed" is just grass and a few teeny trees. I have tried to be nice and set an example to my children by explaining that she is not a witch. I don't feel very comfortable saying that anymore. I really don't understand why she doesn't sell both her house and her empty lot and move to a crazy home, I mean retirement community.

I agree... I don't care if its a fucking anthill on an acre...if they want to build a fence around it and its legal its none of the neighbors' business. Sounds like the neighbors needs to keep their bratty kids off other people's property. Typical parents nowadays though it seems...no responsibility, no accountability...its all someone else's fault.

I've been living in Kennesaw Ridge for several years. The neighborhood has always been peaceful up until the housing market took a down turn. Next thing I know several of the houses have been sold to with people with dozens of kids. These parents have no respect for those living around them. They let the kids hang out playing in the roads and they don't seem to care if their kids hang out and vandalize the neighbor's properties. I have been running kids off my property for months now. They ride bicycles and play ball in my vacant lot constantly. They trek all in my back yard with no respect for my privacy. I've asked the parents to control their kids, but they act like they have some right to trash my property. I have even tried no trespassing signs. Now I am having to install a security fence to keep the kids off my property. This s costing me a huge amount that I really could not afford. What makes people think that because they have kids, we should all suffer with them? I should have bought up the homes when they were on the market. This neighborhood does not need anymore kids!
Maybe you should come out of your house and talk to your neighbors. They are all wonderful people. You should get out from behind your computer and meet them. I bet you would change your mind about the adults and the children. These children aren't wild and crazy, they're just little kids riding bikes and scooters outside in a safe environment. We've lived here for several years and are very happy with the this community. The people are very close, friendly and welcoming.

My family and I moved into Kennesaw be cause it was a neighborhood for kids and a great school. All of the neighbors and their children were just sweet and caring. When you move into Kennesaw We all would greet the new neighbors. I lived not far from your precious property and I NEVER seen any child on it! Ever! The kids do play in the street in the middle of the road which I agree is somewhat dangerous; however the neighbors drive slow and know to nbe on the lookout for kids. I had to drive around that tree every time I left my home and the kids were never a bother and there was always a parent out there with them. The people including myself and my children were very respectful to the properties and enjoyed living there and I remain great friends with my neighbors to this day! If you are so unhappy and broke take down your fence, sale the property, and your two homes, and purchase property where there aren't kids everywhere. You were once a child too and I'm sure you never did anything wrong. We see on here just how u did turn out and it isn't well. This site is so immature and filled with nothing but lies and insults and gossip. I personally can say I did receive a notice in my mailbox about your little lot and tossed t because it wasn't even an issue. I am not going to call you names as I am a bigger and better person than that. I do feel sorry for you that you are alone and hate Gods most precious little children. I hope you will have a change of heart and decide to tell the truth on here. You forget to mention there is a business right behind the property where a lot of young people work too. If anything was done to your property there are more people than just your neighbors and their kids you know? Maybe you have pissed other people off by doing just what you are here and they come to seek revenge. As your old neighbor, stop lying and trashing a great place to live with great neighbors and appreciate their kindness because if they were like you it might not be too friendly for you to still live there. The neighbors have class which I hate to say you are lacking. I miss my neighbors and the kids in the neighborhood. I always loved trick or treating there too bc the kids had so muh fun as did us parents. Please stop talking badly about me as I did not you when I lived there. Show some sense and respect and just sell and move on. Don't punish those around you especially innocent children just minding their own business and playing as it should be.
