What is this neighborhood like? Is there a lot of trouble? Is this part of the "ghetto" of Rolla? Looking to possibly move into the area temporarily( a rental.) Thanks in advance!

It's a decent neighborhood. Not great but by no means is it the ghetto of rolla.

I live on Missouri Av,and so does a young lady in our church. I know there are bad and good people even over were the rich people live. As to ghetto, well things use to be bad.But it's getting alot better. People are starting to fix up their house and get reed of the bad elements as we should.

Thats is what i am saying, the home owners are fixing up their homes and make things better.I have lived on this street for 4 years and things are getting better.We have no trouble with our neighbor's.If the good poepl come in and force the bad out it works.
As to the hud apt's i know crap go's on over there and the cops are thrying to clean it up. When i lived there for a couple of years we had no trouble,but that was 15 years ago.
We should all work to make all our town good.

It is getting alot better, but it can depend upon the neighbors. I'd recommend 'stalking' the place by parking a few houses down from your possible rental, sit in the car and drink a coffee, and watch for any strange noisy or disturbing activity. Maybe mid-day nd again at 'sleep' time.

Good advice. Around dusk too. See what kinds of roving gangs of darkies are tearing stuff up. See who has barking dogs that won't shut up.

I personally would not live in that area. It is known as the ghetto to most of the people in town. Yes there are some good people over there but is known to be a big drug area. There are better places on town
