My family and I are most distressed by the assault on one of our neighbors here in Sutton Manor. While I appreciate the correction of the facts, I have to disagree with the conclusion that Monroe students are the ones parking in this neighborhood. The parking problem is caused by residents of the streets on the other side of Echo Ave., where there are a number of illegal apartments. Since they don’t receive parking they park here in our neighborhood. We have had taxis, motorcycles and I have observed people parking and walking across Echo to the streets on the other side. If the city would investigate the proliferation of these dangerous and illegal apartments, we would not be overwhelmed by the traffic and dangerous conditions these cars cause. Because they park on both sides of the street, the entrances are narrowed to one lane, which would make it more difficult for emergency vehicles to enter safely. I have never seen a Monroe student park here, I have observed older, men and women sometimes with children park here.
We hope and pray that our neighbor recovers from this brutal crime.
We in this neighborhood try to keep a close watch on strangers here.
