Does anyone know when the Trappe Village Apartments are going to be knocked down? They are the slums and are making our community look bad. I hear gun shots and see drug deals over there all of the time!

Trappe's new rental inspection program is going to make it much more difficult for the absentee slumlord to keep the rents so low. Inspections = more maintenance/repairs = higher rents = higher income tenants = less crime.

It will not happen overnight but he will either have to spend money on his property or sell it.

Hopefully he sells it. It is bringing property values down. I dont understand how the new homes they built across from them will sell when the dining room window over looks the village.

I too hope they knock those things down. It is an embarresment to say I live in Trappe sometimes because the first thing someone says is "do you live near those crack houses"

Just drove by this evening and noticed that there's a new sign out front. They're the "Pine Ridge Apartments" or some such, now. That would be kinda fast for them to change hands, so maybe the old owner decided that the recent bad press required a new "brand name."

Everytime I drive by there are cops. I have a friend who lives near there. Last time I was at her place I heard a fight. I love the make shift washer repair center right when you pull in. I hope they burn to the ground. Sam is a loser and yes it is his fault. Yes I agree just because it is a dump doesnt mean that there arent any good people. That place has just attracted more and more losers lately. drugs, guns, cops, trash, fights it's aweful. If I took a walk over there I would be sure to pack some heat.:)

Is your kid the one that smokes in the morning before he gets on the school bus? Or the one who rides around on the little motor bike? Or is he the one drinking to 2 am fighting? Or is he the one that leaves trash all over the entry way? Or is he the one who spray painted the trash dumpster? Or is he the one that has a motorcycle with no exhaust pipe and has to do a burn out at 3am?

I love how everyone say they heard this and they heard that. Exactly you "heard". But did you see? I think it is horrible to say you want them to burn to the ground. What if there are children in there if your wish ever came true? I used to live there and why would you want to make the rent higher to have higher income people in there? You must be the people who has had everything handed to you in life. Get a life and stop worrying about other people. Seriously grow up and act like these sophisticated grown-ups you claim to be. I would rather live at the crack house with people who get along then where ever you losers live and have to deal with people who obviously only give a shit about themselves.

I lived in Trappe recently and its not a bad place. I don't know what your talking about when you say there is cops there all the time and drug deals. I never once seen cops in there. & There is a new landlord and I like her. She gets the job done on what needs to be done.
