Ive been in Norwood for over 10 yrs now, and your right. It's not all that it's cracked up to be. Ive seen so much change in this neighborhood over the recent years. It's scary and yet the boro does nothing to rid of rift raft, dealers, etc. As for the code enforcer...what a disgrace. I hope this man was found guilty of this crime.

They need to lear from Ridley Park. this Borough seems to be holding very steady and safe. Very tight grip on who lives in there.

I am not stuck up... I'm just stuck... living next to the biggest "I do as I please & my brothers on the board so I can jerk! I live next door to a person who does whatever he wants without respect to his neighbors including building additions, decks & sheds without the proper permits & whatever else he SHOULD have, but gets away with it because his brothers on the board. I have been searching high & low for information on what is needed to erect a huge shed as he is doing on the sly in the back of his yard that everyone around him can clearly see & it's size is obstructing the view. IT doesn't really surprise me of the crap that goes on in this town that ends up NEVER coming out & I'm shocked this actually made it to the general public, because this town is stock full of secrets, BS, lies, double-standards, hypocrisy & illegal activities by officials who are allowing not only themselves to partake by allowing it, but are helping their family & friends get away with NOT having to do everything that the rest of us have to do in order to improve our properties. What this ignorant fool fails to realize is that while he is improving his property he is ruining the quality of the homes around him. Does anyone ever think of others or only their own selfish selves?! If anyone knows what permits & whatever else you need to erect a giant shed please let me know, I'm tired of this guy getting away with doing whatever he wants without no fines or fees while the rest of us are nailed to the wall! Fed-Up! Thank you so much! This is from a non-stuck-up Norwood citizen!:)

Sorry to say, but it's already another Philadelphia & well on its way to another Chester... Unfortunately, Norwood's Motto is "Sweep it under the rug"... Everything that the people of Norwood SHOULD know about isn't told, people find out from people telling people... & unfortunately that game ends up with the story changed 50 times. I'm only 30 y/o & know the different between right & wrong & the way Norwood is handling this town is horrendous! IT should be criminal because the people of Norwood are paying for every mistake that the Borough officials make when the problems should be paid for by their TOO BIG salaries, that with the way this town is turning into a run down rickety ghetto, they don't deserve that kind of money... They literally deserve peanuts for their lack of work, loyalty, love & compassion for the town they are being paid big bucks to oversee, run & make it prosperous for the generations to come... By the time the next generations come here, they will pass Norwood by because it is in fact well on its way to becoming a Ghetto. IT's such a shame, because this town used to be so beautiful. I can't believe how quickly this town is turning into garbage. But as I said it all comes down to them keeping everything that happens around here hush hush. An example of this disgusting & disgracefulness is that a couple years ago people were coming out of their houses in the morning to find their car doors open & any personal expensive belongings gone, it came out that kids from Philadelphia were taking the train in, robbing cars, leaving the car doors open so no sound was made & getting the train back... MY mom came outside to find at least 12-20 cars riding down the street with doors wide open & no one around... Nothing was put in the paper to indicate or warn residents of this but about 2-3wks later papers were put under the wiper blades of cars to warn of this problem. Norwood has a long standing reputation of making it appear safer then it really is around here. Maybe some haven't had any problems, maybe some have... but no one looking into moving here should be fed a sugar coated cake & lollipops story about how this area is great, when the area is less than stellar! They need to appoint real people who are in it for the compassion, love & drive to bring back Norwood's beauty, not for the money... That is Norwood's biggest flaw... People who are being paid money they shouldn't be making because they are doing nothing to give Norwood a fighting chance to prosper... They're killing Norwood, 1 day at a time. So sad.
